Movie Preview: Taken

If this pattern keeps up it will become "spooky trailer" week here on Buzz, starting with yesterday's preview for The Happening. Today I present the trailer for Taken, starring Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Lost's Maggie Grace. I have high hopes for this thriller as it was co-written by Luc Besson, the mind behind one of my favorite movies, The Professional.

Taken follows Neeson's character Bryan, whose daughter (Grace) goes on a fun, innocent trip to Paris with her friend. The scary stuff starts when Bryan gets a panicked call from his daughter as she's being kidnapped.

At first I thought this might be another run-of-the-mill ransom movie, but then Bryan informs the kidnappers that he does not have money, but rather a set of "skills" that makes him a "nightmare for people like them." Scary!

Taken opens in France on February 28, though there's no information yet on a U.S. release date. To check out the trailer,

Liam Neeson is indeed badass. He could show Bourne a thing or two...but "now's not the time for ----- measuring"! There is an additional wealth of quotable quotes

I've seen this already, and it really is awesome. Kinda Bourne-y, and Liam Neeson totally kicks some ass!

Liam kicking some tail - I could get behind that. ;) Although the trailer was making my blood pressure go sky high! Reminds me of the movie 'Ransom', it made me a nervous wreck!

Looks like a movie I'd go see. Maggie Grace does a good job (at least in the preview) embracing the awkwardness of a 17 year old. I'm so tired of actors playing teens who fail to act young.
