Written by ‘Leon’ director Luc Besson and directed by Pierre Morel (‘The Transporter’), ‘Taken’ is a hard-hitting contemporary action drama. Liam Neeson plays Bryan, a retired spy whose daughter, played by Maggie Grace (‘Lost’), is abducted by slave traders on the streets of Paris. Bryan pursues the captors across Europe, using the skills he’s learned in theespionage game to track them down and free the girl. Gritty and brutally violent, ‘Taken’ is a modern, high-octane Euro-thriller in the style of ‘The Bourne Identity’.
