Lights Camera Action – Taken

Movie out this month directed by Luc Besson and starring Liam Neeson as an ex-Goverment Preventor with 96 hours to save his daughter from the eastern european sex trade…..sounds to far fetched…well it just might be. Obvious flaws in the storyline plus some shockingly cheesy script moments weaken the powerful punch of this movie delivered through its gloriously brutal fight scenes and over the top car chases. Famke Janssen (Jean Grey, X-men) is the only believable character in the story having perfected the bitter rich wife role to a ‘T’ in The Whackness…is she being type cast all of a sudden? Release date on this was put back so many times this year as critics believed it was cashing in off the Madeline Mcain abduction, however i think that story was made up to give this film some sort of serious credentials…Good luck with that! This film is ‘Ransom’ meets ‘Man on Fire’ with a thick slice of Segal realism and a terrible influence as im off now to take on the Turkish sex trade operating on Blackstock rd, armed with the essential ipod speakers and the deadliest weapons….my hands!
