I really don’t have an answer when it comes to why I have never started watching the Taken films up until this point, because I really wish I had sooner. Especially since I myself am a big fan of Liam Neeson. It might have been that I was expecting another one of those films where it was non-stop action and there was no room for the protagonist to fail. I was also worried that by watching it, it would seem like it was over-hyped, another film that everyone seemed to love for no apparent reason. Every clip I watched didn’t seem intriguing, and even the famous line “I will find you, and I will kill you” seemed like an over-dramatization. This might be the reason I didn’t feel compelled to watch the movie initially.
It wasn’t until I found the Blu-ray version in my parents house that I decided to give the movie a go. It may not have called out to me to run out and buy it myself, but I’m not one to pass up an opportunity when it basically jumps out at me.
