In Taken, a man named Brian unwillingly lets his daughter Kim go to France with a friend on some conditions. However, when Kim and her friend arrive in France, they are taken into prostitution just by talking to a guy they think is cute. Brian hears, through Kim's cell phone, the two girls being taken. He calls the sick men who are taking women such as his daughter and basically says, "If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you." And so begins a crazy, awesome thriller that ponders this question multiple times...where do you draw the line when it comes to protecting your kids? Speaking of that, this film is only for people 13 and up (14 or 15 and up for the unrated cut). In terms of content, most of the film is about sex trafficking of women and prostitution, and there's a brief scene of prostitutes and their clients having sex (but it's not explicit, and they're wearing clothing). There's some bad language and a middle finger, but nothing too serious (compared to most PG-13 films these days, and the PG-rated movie Speed Racer had the middle finger gesture). There's a bit of alcohol use and smoking, but the most obvious drug content is the use of what might be heroin to make the women do their jobs. Finally, there is a lot of violence. However, there's a point to it; Brian will stop at nothing to save his daughter. There's a lot of punching, kicking, neck-breaking, and what have you, but the most violent part was the torture scene, especially in the unrated version. In the PG-13, Brian just shocks the guy. In the unrated version, Brian drives 2 large nails in the guy's legs, hooks up electrical cables to the nails, and shocks him multiple times to get information. Other than the extended torture scene and some bloodsplatter in the shoot outs, the unrated version is just about the same. That doesn't mean it's not good. Overall, Taken is a brilliant thriller that actually has a message: some people will stop at nothing to protect their kids.
