I wish I'd never been Taken

By plimmer on 2/2/2009

  • Overall Rating: 3

Oh dear oh dear. We've had this film in the UK for weeks now and I thought the US had been saved from its dreadfulness. Just remember that Europe is full of evil people and French people with baguettes. The story is just so weak, the poor daughter has literally taken in one lungful of evil European air and she is snatched by the nasties. Liam tries a little to hard to be, well, hard. The baddies are just a little cliched and the action is too obvious. Save your money and wait a week for it to arrive on cable.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
