Anybody see Taken this past weekend? Liam Neelson does his own fight scenes, none of that drawn out ballet stuff, short quick and brutal. Looks like Silat and something else.:cool::biggrin:

That was an awesome movie. I don't condone torture but watching that movie made me rethink my position.

Everyone should watching this movie. There's a good moral lesson in it.

The benefits of a developed power grid. I did get a dirty look when I pointed out that hanging upside down was preferable to sitting upright. Keeps em disorientated and makes it harder for them to defecate or urinate on you.:eek:

I downloaded the movie after watching it in the theater. The "downloadable" version has a few more scenes cut out of the theatrical version. A bit more blood and few more innocent people getting killed.

I saw the previews for it and read some reviews. I liked it the first time I saw it, when it was called The Searchers, oh yeah and the second time I saw it when it was called Hardcore with George C. Scott. Don't know if it has the same moral message in questioning the actions of (father figure) John Wayne in The Searchers and (father) George C. Scott in Hardcore or if it's just Liam Neeson going around killing a bunch of people. If it is the latter, I don't know why you would need an actor of Neeson's chops to do that. Ah Luc Besson what happened to you after Nikita and the Fifth Element. :)

I brought this movie to my friend's movie night. It ran back to back twice because so many people wanted to watch it and some wanted to watch it again.

Is this the movie where Liam Neeson is a former CIA agent who's daughter is kidnapped?

I wanted to see this but now the whole plot has been revealed :)

One have to see this movie. It's Liam Neeson for crying out loud - The Jedi Master! :biggrin:

And he still has good moves in his repertoire, I just wish he would use a lightsaber too. :cool:

It's very good. You should go see it.

I was half expecting Liam Neeson to whip out a light saber half way through the movie.:biggrin:

When I was 17 my parents were very keen to get me out of the country (which they stayed in) for as long as possible. Brought me the tickets and everything:biggrin:
First non-school trip holiday with just mates (no bloody parents) that I had, loved every second. Enjoying the different sites of Europe... well the various clubs, bars and all the like. Fun holiday that was:biggrin:
