09.18.09Netflix I heard this was good... had no clue it was co-written by Luc Besson. The story is pretty simple: stupid american teen girls get abducted into sex slavery but oops, one of the girls' daddy is a retired certified badass even though he has a giraffe neck and gigantic Irish nose. Yep, Liam Neeson is a bit of an odd choice for this movie but for me he makes the film unique. If this was Jason Statham or some other action guy, it'd be a pretty familiar bourne-ultimatum-meets-commando flick. Instead, it's kind of interesting to watch him kick ass via quick cuts and sound effects. In case I'm sounding like I didn't like it... i did. It wasn't the most memorable movie ever but it certainly gets in, does its job competently, then gets out. Can't ask much more than that.
