Liam Neeson takes on a breakneck, adrenalin-fuelled role in the tense and heart-pounding action thriller Taken, from acclaimed producer Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Leon). Neeson (Batman Begins, Schindlers List) plays an ex-secret agent who will stop at nothing to rescue his daughter from her Albanian kidnappers in Paris. This roller-coaster ride of an adventure is as action-packed as the Bourne Trilogy and will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Taken is released to rent and buy as an extended, harder cut than seen in cinemas on DVD and Blu-ray on 9th February 2009 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Former secret agent Bryan Mills (Neeson) begins the longest 96 hours of his life - in the hunt for the fearsome organization that has taken his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace; Lost, The Fog). When Kim who lives with Bryan's ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen; The X-Men Trilogy, Hide and Seek) and a friend want to travel to Paris, Bryan refuses due to the dangers that could lie ahead, but eventually he allows her to go on the basis she calls him every night before she goes to bed...
Bryan's worst fears are realized when Kim and her friend Amanda are suddenly abducted - in broad daylight - from the Paris apartment at which they've just arrived. Moments before Kim is dragged away by the as yet unseen and unknown assailants, she manages to phone Bryan, who begins to expertly piece together clues that will take him to the darkness of Paris's underworld. He will face nightmares worse than anything he has ever experienced - and will let nothing and no one stop him from finding and saving his daughter.
Taken is bursting with fight scenes, car chases and exciting action sequences, plus a whole host of amazing special features on DVD and Blu-ray. The fantastic extra footage puts you on the other side of the camera, taking you through some of the electrifying action including; the explosive car stunts and chases, the spine-chilling fight sequence on the boat and behind-the-scenes cast interviews with Luc Besson, Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Maggie Gray. If you are a fan of the Jason Bourne and James Bond films then Taken will knock you out on DVD and Blu-ray!
