Fraser Mckissack’s review:
The first time I watched Taken I impregnated my undies - this film is fantastic, Liam Neeson kicks so much arse, holy shit French people can make action films! It's a little disconcerting that a popcorn action flick deals with the glib world of sex trafficking, but fuck it, when you see Neeson elbow a dude in the throat you won't be worrying about that. ( I just watched this again and need to add two amendments: the film is a bit racist, and it plays to the idea that women are helpless and need a tough man to save them. If you're cool with that then all is good).
