Taken: Fun But Harmless
What makes the best action stars so great is their ability to “show their ass”, if you will. When Jackie Chan has to go toe to toe with a gang, he doesn’t march right in, he runs. He knows when to run to stay alive and it shows the threat of the fight and that our hero isn’t unbeatable.
Since the first scene of Taken, Liam Neeson’s character is the only one without any faults. Unless you consider wanting to be a good father and know your daughter is safe as a fault. Also, that whole murdering a hundred people to do so business. He does it perfectly too, you buy him as a credible badass and, more importantly, a caring father. If a lesser actor was in this movie, it would have been completely abysmal.
The greatest threats he faced was a blow to the back of the head coming out of a room, something he easily dealt with in every other scene. His greatest adversary? The dreaded Some Guy, a rich guy on a yacht who, for the sole purpose of needing a final fight in this movie, knows kung fu and gets the better of ole’ Wolf Puncher, something the French Intelligence couldn’t even do.
It does have it’s bright sides, however. The action scenes are good, watching Neeson break the arms of half the immigrants in Paris is fun as hell (though I can’t imagine him doing a barrel roll in real life without cracking two ribs), and it plays upon your xenophobia and family sensibilities so well that you can’t help but watch and wait for him to get his daughter. Which he does, by the way. Spoilers.
I know it’s pointless reviewing a movie so old it already has a sequel (whyyy?), but it needed to be done. It’s just business.
