This film takes on an overlooked evil in the world when it comes to movie villains, the sex slave trade. It is difficult to think of anything more repulsive than this. An ex-CIA operative, Brian Mills (Liam Neeson), has his daughter abducted when on vacation in Europe by a group who sells girls into the slave trade. When local officials refuse to help Mills find his daughter, he decides to take matters into his own hands. Mills knows he only has a matter of days to find his daughter before she vanishes for good. The audience rides along as we watch him take no mercy on anyone involved in an industry that enslaves and objectifies women (mostly young girls) for sex. This is exactly the kind of enemy anyone with a soul could take a stand against. Here, the one-man-wrecking-crew is used in a way that while over the top, provides viewers with a copious amount of satisfaction.
