Will Liam Neeson's ''Taken'' join ''The Matrix,'' ''Gladiator,'' ''Casino Royale,'' and the rest on our list of edge-of-your-seat thrill rides? (Unlikely.)
Directed by Mel Gibson (2006)
Don't be put off by the subtitles, action fans. The last half of this movie is, essentially, subtitle-free. Because there's, essentially, no dialogue. Because it's all friggin' action. Say what you will about the man, but Mel Gibson, who's worked with some of the finest action directors around and made a couple of terrific films himself knows what he's doing.
