Chicago Tribune - Unnamed
There is no mythology, no irony, no real soul--just a Charles Bronson simplicity about the whole affair.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
If there are any "24" fans who have wondered what the TV series might be like if Liam Neeson replaced Kiefer Sutherland, Taken provides an opportunity to have that question answered.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Taken shows Mills as a one-man rescue squad, a master of every skill, a laser-eyed, sharpshooting, pursuit-driving, pocket-picking, impersonating, knife-fighting, torturing, karate-fighting killing machine who can cleverly turn over a petrol tank with one pass in his car and strategically ignite it with another.
Variety - Derek Elley
Neeson growls his way through the functional dialogue as an unstoppable killing machine in impressive, cold-eyed style.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Propulsively outandish thriller.

Taken (2008)

Working against the clock, her ex-spy father must pull out all the stops to save her. But with his best years possibly behind him, the job may be more than he can handle.
