Arrow Taken

Taken is a 2008 action thriller film produced by Luc Besson, starring Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, and Famke Janssen. The screenplay was written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, and directed by Pierre Morel. Neeson plays a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative who sets about tracking down his daughter after she is kidnapped while traveling in France.

The next day, Bryan has lunch with Kim and his ex-wife Lenore who has come with her, upsetting Bryan's plan to spend time with Kim. He soon learns that Lenore has come to convince Bryan to allow Kim to travel to Paris with her friend, Amanda, to explore art museums. Bryan is reluctant, as he knows how dangerous it can be in foreign countries when you are alone.However, at the airport, Bryan discovers that the girls actually intend to follow U2's Vertigo Tour around Europe. Lenore tells him that she knew about the concert, and that he needs to let her go.

Highly-skilled CIA field agent Bryan Mills has retired to try to build a closer relationship with his daughter, Kim. His frequent absences and travelling made him a distant father. Knowing Kim wants to be a singer, Bryan buys her an expensive karaoke machine for her birthday, only to be upstaged by her wealthy stepfather Stuart's gift of a horse.

Sam later informs Bryan that the kidnappers are members of the Albanian Mafia, who specialize in kidnapping teenagers to sell them into sexual slavery. Bryan and Lenore are told that if Kim is not rescued within 96 hours (or 4 days), she will likely never be found again. Bryan flies to Paris that evening using Stuart's connection with a private jet company.
