TAKEN (2008): The Less You Know Before Watching, The Better

For quite some time now, my youngest brother, (knowing how much I love movies) recommended that I should watch director Pierre Morel and co-writers Luc Besson plus Robert Mark Kamen’s Taken (2008).

Unfortunately, for a while, I kept disappointing him each time he checked to see whether I’d finally seen it.

I could never give him a definite viewing date because I have to be in the right mood to watch a specific movie. Also,  one thing he did insist on was that all I needed to know before watching the film is the name of its star, Liam Neeson and that it’s a good movie. I accepted this restriction and I’m so glad I did, because Taken is a great action movie. The kind that will have you so very engrossed as the story unfolds, and at a pace that leaves nothing more to be desired.

I honestly could not recommend this movie more. If you’ve already seen it, then you know precisely what I’m talking about. But in the event that  you’re yet to experience it, I suggest choosing to know as little as possible prior to pressing the play button. Trust me when I say that doing this will only enhance your experience of the film.

Additional key cast includes Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen.

Happy Film Loving!
