Comparing this movie to Taken is doing it a grave injustice. Liam Neeson was much more believable as an action hero this time and Diane Krueger rocked as the side kick that everyone would want on their side. This had me gripped from the beginning and trying (and failing) to second guess where it was going. Really smart twist at the end. Well worth a watch.
