I think Taken is great movie of action. There is no need for a complicated plot. The movie is not too long, does not have unnecessary and embarracing love scene or two. And Neeson is better then Ford in the last Indy series. Neeson plays much better action hero in "advanced" age. Compare Take to the last Indy and who wins? Taken of course! Without bad comp work, without bad bad bad plot and without unnecessary scenery. Taken is a good light action movie. Good, fast and not too much thinking about action. And of course it goes so fast viewers do not have time to judge the morality.
