Movie Review Monday

Today's Netflix review is for the movie Taken starring Liam Neeson. I would like to take this opportunity to give Husband credit for not bringing another craptacular flick into our home. This movie is cuh-razy. Liam Neeson is a retired government "preventer" that keeps bad things from happening. He's like a super savvy dude that can sniff out the bad guys and kill them without hesitation. His super spoiled 17-year old daughter lies to her dad to get to France to allegedly check out some culture but really wants to follow U2 around on their European tour. She ends up getting snatched up by some dude that sells her into the sex trade. Famke Janssen (a.k.a. Jean Grey) plays his super bitchy ex-wife who is now some rich dude's trophy wife. While this movie was far from believable, it kicked some serious ass. There is a lot of killing going on in this one and on more than one occasion Husband and I either had our mouths agape or were shouting "Damn!" So I recommend it... though Liam Neeson's accent gave me agita.

This review was brought to you by the word "super."
