I don’t know exactly where Liam Neeson‘s been hiding for the past couple of years, but he’s finally made his his way back to the big screen. He stars in the new suspense thriller entitled, Taken. No, I’m not referring to the 2002 made for television mini-series Taken, by Steven Spielberg. I’m talking about Pierre Morel’s theatrical film that focuses on the always uncomfortable subject of human trafficking.

More on Taken when you continue.

In the film, ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills (Neeson) has to locate his abducted teenage daughter in the city of Paris, France. While on this mission, he ends up delving into the corrupt world of human trafficking and prostitution. As a trained government operative he decides to take matters into his own hands and uses his connections within the C.I.A. to not only locate his daughter, but also bring her kidnappers to justice.

I’ve got one word for this flick…..heavy.

The film opens January 30, 2009, and also stars Maggie Grace, and Famke Janssen.
