If you manage to walk away from Taken having learned one lesson, that lesson would be to never fuck with Liam Neeson. If you do, you will die so hard that your ancestors will feel it. Seriously.
Liam Neeson plays Bryan Mills, a retired CIA agent trying to get closer to his estranged daughter. Plot setup ensues, and finally his daughter is kidnapped while on vacation in Paris. He tracks down the unfortunate assholes who decided to fuck with Liam Neeson and proceeds to fuck their world up in a way that can only be described as “batshit crazy”.
Liam Neeson is not really the first actor to come to peoples’ minds when you think “batshit crazy, ex-CIA agent, who fucks up a bunch of people”.
Liam Neeson portrayed Bryan Mills incredibly. He had intensity, he had the physical abilities, and he FUCKED PEOPLE UP IN A BATSHIT CRAZY MANNER (if I didn’t mention that already).
That’s his daughter. She’s being held at knifepoint by an old perv who bought her from sex traffickers. Liam Neeson is on the boat with them. Old Perv dies. Daughter is saved.
Watch this movie, please.
