This is a good action flick! It was a way better story than I expected and the character development was well done for the most part. It had lots of action: shootouts, explosions, car chases, etc. But, it also had believable characters (except for the daughter). Liam Neeson didn't make this as cheesey as I thought it was going to be. I wanted to see it just because of the preview, when he is on the cell phone with the kidnappers and he got all grizzly and told them that he'd hunt them down and kill them; he sounded pretty gully. Overall, I'd reccomend this to anybody who likes action movies. It is worth a trip to the movies!
