Liam Neeson turns middle-aged action hero in this gritty thriller from French director Pierre Morel. Neeson's brow is creased with furious intent as he plays an ex-covert operative who runs, kicks, shoots and punches a bloody swathe through Paris to find the men who've kidnapped his daughter (Maggie Grace). It soon becomes apparent that she's the victim of a major sex-trafficking operation, but any attempt to engage with this serious issue is drowned out by the crash, bang, wallop of bad guys (invariably swarthy immigrants) being dispatched. That's surely the influence of co-writer/producer Luc Besson (The Fifth Element), although Morel does counter the ludicrous Rambo-style moments with a bristling, raw energy to his camerawork. The physical punishment Neeson inflicts is almost palpable, but to his credit it's never at the expense of conveying his own sense of pain.
While vacationing with a friend in Paris, an American girl is kidnapped by a gang of human traffickers intent on selling her into forced prostitution. Working against the clock, her ex-spy father must pull out all the stops to save her. But with his best years possibly behind him, the job may be more than he can handle.
