Kill Count: Taken (2008)

Taken kinda came out of nowhere and blew up the box office; a new action hero was born in the unlikely form of Liam Neeson.

In the movie he plays Bryan Mills, an ex-CIA operative with a particular set of skills, which he has no trouble demonstrating when foolish human traffickers kidnap his daughter Kim while she is on holiday in Paris.

Mills becomes a one man army and will stop at nothing to bring back his daughter; PG-13 films have no body count?

This will prove that argument invalid as Mills takes out legions of goons using trays, his hands, guns and more.

The great thing is about having human traffickers as your bad guys is that they are the lowest form of life, so no matter how violent they are tortured and killed it’s still not as awful as what they deserve.

It was never personal? It sure as Hell is to Mills!
