Worth Watching - Dec 7: Liam Neeson in Taken

Taken Trailer

Don't watch this trailer at night when you're alone and it's dark outside - the results won't be too good. Taken is a French film directed by Pierre Morel and is one of those that just came out of nowhere. It's a foreign thriller with a solid cast: Liam Neeson and Famke Janssen. The real kicker is that filmmaker Luc Besson both wrote and produced it. This reminds me a lot of A History of Violence, with a guy who has killing "specialties" but has a shady background. And here's where my inner-geek comes out: I love the way Liam Neeson speaks on the cell phone threatening the guys - I think of him as Ra's Al Ghul from Batman Begins saying these things, and then it gets really badass in my mind.

Watch the international trailer for Taken:

Taken is directed by Pierre Morel, director of District B13 and long-time cinematographer, and is co-written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. The film does not have a US release date set by Fox, but is arriving in France in February 2008. The newest poster for Taken is featured below.

Indeed...the cell phone scene made this trailer. I'll probably watch it just from that scene.

Hell Yeah! Liam Neeson has always been one of my favorites. "I will find you, and I WILL kill you." Awesome.

Im all up for having Liam Neeson as the main guy, but having Maggie Grace (who played Shannon in Lost) as the young girl? No, I dont think thats good casting. I mean, a 24 year old playing a 17 year old. We've seen it before but it works better if the play their own age!

looks great. i think the casting is fine, ms. grace seems to do fine with the role. it reminds me of death sentence, which I havent seen for that matter, but ten times better.

looks good.. liam did good in that cellphone scene... however, i still can't figure out the part "don't watch this alone at night"... should i be scared of the night after watching this trailer? or should i be excited how liam will find the bad guys? i think it should be the latter... my centavo though... no offense alex...

@ jackdublin: You nailed it. I didn't buy into the trailer til the phone conversation. I'll quote Kenny Banya and say "GOLD, JERRY! GOLD!" I have to watch this trailer every couple of days just to hold me over til it comes out! Anymore info on this movie yet? Release date?

A great one from Luc Besson. I've seen it. I recommend it, highly. This movie was released as long as 11 months ago in foreign markets.
