Taken is a fun thriller

I meant to see this movie ever since I saw a preview in an Argentine movie theater almost a year ago. For some reason (probably because it’s French directed and produced), it came out in the US a few weeks ago, much later than in the rest of the world. It has done extremely well.

It’s essentially the story of a retired Jason Bourne played by Liam Neeson whose daughter is kidnapped while she is on vacation in Paris. We follow his desperate but deliberate search. I particularly loved the logical progression of the story as he went from clue to clue.

The movie is fast paced and thrilling. See it for a nice ninety minute escapade.
