It has a similar feel to Taken and is also set in dark Europe and stars the very capable Liam Neeson. The storyline is solid and so is the acting. There is a lack of gloss, and it's very edgy. The twist is pretty good and so is the action, although it's not kool when you see an untrained person suddenly capable of driving a car like a stuntman. Writers this good could have come up with something better.
It feels a lot worse, which is yet another instance of The case of 'The Matrix Reloaded'. It's not as interesting, it does not feel like Taken, it's not set in dark Europe, the twist not too interesting (unless it's your first time), and the untrained life-saver merely irritating.
