Taken (2008)


I love this movie very much. The Australia release date in cinema was at 14th August 2008 and released on 12th May 2009 on DVD . Taken is a French movie starrring Liam Neeson, Femke Janssen and Maggie Grace. It was directed by Pierre Morel. 

CIA agent Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) has a 17 year old daughter Kim (Maggie Grace). She is kidnapped by  someone in France, and Bryan need to save his daughter in 72 hours. After 72 hours, he will not see his daughter again. In this movie, Liam Nesson has showed us a lot of techniques of CIA. 

Why CIA is so powerful?
Who set it up?
What is the job in CIA? 

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is a civilian intelligence agency of the United States government. It is an independent U.S. Government agency responsible for providing national security Intelligence (information gathering) to senior U.S. policymakers. It is the successor of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) formed, during World War II, to coordinate espionage activities between the branches of the US military services. The National Security Act of 1947 established the CIA, affording it “no police or law enforcement functions, either at home or abroad.” One year later this mandate was expanded to include “sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures…. Subversion (and) assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas and refugee liberation movements, and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries of the free world”

Good story, Good actor, Good screen. Let’s go and watch it now!
