That movie is, in fact, extremely awesome. Liam Neeson is a true badass. Wish he'd make more like it...

It looks pretty good, I haven't seen it but its good to see that Liam's career wasn't ruined by Star Wars!

The trailer was awesome but I haven't seen the movie yet...
The comments are interesting though.... I think I'll watch it.

Liam Neeson has been in too many supporting roles over the past decade. He needed to make a movie like that, and that is exactly what I was hoping it was. Sort of a modern day Death Wish? I might have to check this out. Now there are three movies out I would like to see in an otherwise known dead movie season.

1. Frost/Nixon
2. Grand Torino
3. Taken

I have yet to see 'Taken' but from what I've heard and what little I've seen...IT LOOKS AWESOME!

Brilliant film. Neeson is a convincing bad ass.

Yeah, that's what I've heard, Liam Neeson is an excellent actor, especially in films like 'Taken.':D

I somehow saw the movie before it came out in theaters and I agree with Dath. It's a pretty awesome flick. Liam Neeson is one hardcore badass.

I've been eying it since the first viewed the trailers. Liam Neeson is one of my favourite actors. He was awesome in Schindler's List, The Phantom Menace and Batman Begins. I hope to see it sometime soon.

Being a fan of anything Luc Besson, I had to watch Taken as soon as humanly possible. Brilliant film, one of the best of 08 imho. It's just too bad they cut down the US release of it. The electricity torture was quite powerful in the original cut I thought, and somewhat lackluster in the US version. Gotta get those pg-13's i guess. Hopefully there will be an unrated DVD in the US.

Yeah, I saw it yesterday. The movie was ****ing badass. I'd have to say it's amongst my favourites of this year so far. Liam Neeson was incredible.

I usually only lurk around here, but a thread about a movie that kicks this much ass is a sure way to draw me out. Fantastic film, probably the first one in years I'll actually buy, instead of seeing once in threatres and forgetting.

What the guy said above you, or the movie?

Because the former was tarded and that latter was bloody brilliant.

I was referring to the film, not the comment posted above me. Also I am now afraid to travel for fear that I will be kidnapped.

Yes. On top of that, I am also extremely naive, gullible, and wealthy!

Well okay then. There's this party I'm having downtown later tonight, do you want to come?

i think it is definitely a great movie.

although you could set up a drinking game while watching it. Someone takes a shot everytime he slams someones head into something.

youd be drunk an hour in....LoL

Like everyone else, I thought Liam Neeson was great in that role - he played it perfectly, and delivered what is sure to become an immortal line:

"If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you. I will find you, and I will kill you."

Sheer brilliance! Best film I've seen in a while.

I loved the part where he... maybe I should put a spoiler warning...


Finally catches up to the guy and says something along the lines of, You don't remember me, we talked on the phone, etc... then drops 'em like flies.

You joined in July 2002, so you should know by now.

Actually I haven't been on for a while so... yeah I forgot about that and I didn't use spoilers very often before either anyway.

Also, I was too lazy to find the proper spoiler tags.

*Excellent* movie and Liam is as badass as he ever was as qui gon...in fact moreso even. (Can't believe I missed this thread.)

I saw this movie on Blu-Ray Tuesday night while staying over at a friends' house. There were 3 males and two females in the house, and all of us were screaming "oh.....oh damn....ouch!...etc" through the entire thing. This film is an action movie at heart. This is the first time I ever saw Liam Neeson playing a bad ass, but he really pulled it off. This film is almost as entertaining as one of the Bourne movies, only with more action involved!

I swear to Christ I have to see this movie. I got nothing to do today. Maybe I'll finally rent the bitch.
