It's not often that I'm on the edge of my seating and totally engrossed in a movie...but that definitely was the case with Taken. Liam Neeson's character was very likeable. The type of character you pull for throughout the entire movie. This is more of a thriller than an action movie (don't get me wrong, there are plenty of fights) and I think that's why I was into it.
If you like LOST (and who doesn't?) Maggie Grace (Shannon) is in this movie. Upside is she is not nearly as annoying as she was on LOST and the downside is she looks really bad with brown hair.
