Taken is a 2008 thriller starring Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, a former CIA operative who discovers that his daughter has been kidnapped while traveling in Paris and subsequently has to use his "special skills" to find her before she disappears into the sex trafficking trade. The film was directed by Pierre Morel (From Paris with Love) from a screenplay by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. The success of the film would lead to two feature film sequels: 2012's Taken 2 and 2015's Taken 3 as well as a television series prequel that premiered on NBC in 2017.

The following weapons were used in the film Taken (2008):



Beretta 92FS
