Taken contains very little plot, gets kind of ridiculous at times and is quite predictable. It's also a fun, fast-paced revenge movie with lots of good kinetic action sequences and unfolds at a brisk pace. Taken rarely drags and is never really boring. It's an exhilarating non-stop roller coaster ride of a movie that never lets up. Liam Neeson adds much needed credibility to a film that a lesser actor couldn't bring.
