Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Taken starts in low gear and almost immediately stalls out. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's fun for about 15 minutes seeing Neeson do James Bond as Daddy Dangerous. But the surprise wears off quickly. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Oct 3, 2011

Fresh: With some suspension of disbelief and a strong stomach, it's possible to get taken in, or at least absorbed, by this adrenaline-pumping action thriller. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: [Director] Morel keeps Taken moving swiftly. It's never dragged down by excess feelings; instead, it's powered by the potency of the right ones. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jun 24, 2010

These is an AMAZING movie and it really brought awareness that this crap actually happens (besides it's a great action clip). After so many movies, another one about one guy who is "Invicible" is just...annoying and you have no desire, but this was different. For one Liam Neeson is older, second, the choreography in it was just outstanding and different. It's not your average movie. I HIGHLY reccomend you at least rent it and watch it. ...Amazing.

First Review! And An Amazing Movie

Liam Neeson gives it his all in this movie. It is full of non-stop action and that great edge of your seat feeling. Perfect plot, perfect director, and perfect cast. Worth every penny.

One of the best movies since The Dark Knight

Very good movie, plot, action packed, and original. Just buy the movie. You will not regret it. If there is ever a rate below four stars for this movie, that person is on crack.
