It's still hard to believe that a relatively generic film like Taken became such a huge box-office hit. There certainly aren't that many huge Liam Neeson fans and the luscious Maggie Grace didn't even take her kit off so that's not what drew crowds. Chalk it up to William Goldman's old aphorism: "Nobody knows anything." You know a franchise is in deep trouble when the star of the franchise stops appearing in the movies. Still, Rhona Mitra is slightly hotter than Kate Beckinsale...hmmm. Star Trek is a huge hit in theaters so roll out the piggyback marketing! Taking Chance was a nicely balanced film about the Iraq War. Naturally, no one saw it.
