    Synopsis:
    Former government operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) begins the longest 96-hours of his life – and the hunt for the fearsome organization that has taken his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace).


    I watched it and I wouldn't pay money to see it. Wait until it is released on Video or HBO.

    I rate it a 3 of out 10 (ten being the best)

    Well the story is, his daughter goes off to Europe with her friend. The dad is a retired CIA agent. He didnt' want his daughter to go, but his X wife pressured him to say yes. She goes, and is taken by Russian Mob to sell as a sex slave. The first 45 minutes is to tell you all that! Then he goes off to find her, so unrealistic. Not one bullet finds it's mark. LOL Not a long chase scene either.

    It's just blah! A decent made for TV type movie but nothing I would go to the movie theater over.

    Sounds kind of implausible to me.

    The Russian Mafia abducts American tourists in Paris to turn them into sex slaves?

    Like they can't find Russian girls and woman so they have to go after American tourists in Paris?!

    I hate stupid plots.

    For all the money it costs to make a movie, you'd think they'd spend a few extra bucks and buy a plot that makes sense, wouldn't you?

    It's not worth paying the 7 to 15 bucks depending on where you live to see this movie. Yeah like I said, it's ok for video rental or watch it on HBO but to pay money for it. You'll walk out of the theater saying "I should have gone to see that other movie".

    Well according to the movie, the mob started abducting tourists because it was cheaper, saved money on traveling costs. They would abduct them in Paris, and put them to work right away.

    Having said that, the movie is posted online for free. Definitely a solid action movie..

    I liked the movie a lot, except for the acting of the daughter. But very exciting and action packed.
