Apparently the North American release of this film was delayed so long that it was released is pretty much every other country, but here. I also found out that this version of Taken is an edited PG-13 version, instead of the more violent version that was released overseas.
That said, I still found the film a decent action/thriller. The film has a very straight-forward plot of Liam Neeson’s character tracking his kidnapped daughter through the Paris underworld.
I would like to see the unedited version (probably when the film comes out on DVD), but I can still say that I enjoyed this film.
