Starring: Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Olivier Rabourdin
A former US spy is living the life of a retiree. Bryan Mills (Neeson) got divorced because his wife felt he gave too much time to work and none to family. He is still attached to his daughter Kim (Grace) who wishes to go to Paris with her friend on a vacation, much to his dislike. He does give her a sanction but with a lot of restrictions and with deep suspicion. His worst fear comes true when Kim and her friend get kidnapped from their apartment by a notorious gang of Albanians. Bryan digs up his old contacts and learns that the Albanians are known for kidnapping and trafficking women internationally who later end up as prostitutes. Bryan also learns that he has 96 hours before he loses Kim forever. Liam Neeson puts on a fabulous show and the movie is a must-watch for adrenaline and action-junkies. The only sad part is that the movie doesn't have any big twist towards the end and the outcome of the movie is quite predictable from the start. A great entertainer and don't expect any fireworks.
Thumbs up: Liam Neeson, fabulous action
Thumbs down: Plot outline is quite plain
