Top Performances is a recurring feature in which we definitively handpick the very best performances from an iconic actor or actress.
While Liam Neeson has never been a stranger to the action genre throughout his career, it wasn’t until the release of Taken in 2008 that Hollywood fully realized just how convincing of an action hero he could really be. His ex-Special Ops agent with “a very specific set of skills” was an action hero for the modern era, an everyday guy capable of slaughtering half of France with his bare hands. And now that the series is finally coming to an end with this week’s release of Taken 3, or rather Tak3n as it’s delightfully titled on the poster, we thought it’d be a good time to look back at some of his best, or at least most interesting, action offerings. Good luck.
