Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife (January Jones) suddenly doesn't recognize him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by assassins, he finds himself alone, tired, and on the run. On his own in a strange country, Martin seeks aid from an unlikely and reluctant source (Diane Kruger) as he plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth.
Take Back Your Life. An American biologist attending a conference in Berlin awakens from a coma after a car accident, only to discover that someone has taken his identity and that no one, not even his wife, believes him. With the help of an illegal immigrant and a former Stazi agent, he sets out to prove who he is and find out why people are trying to kill him.. Unknown Wiki
Still confused on his wife, was she really his wife? What the hell going on with that?
Like: Liam Neeson. He did a convincing job of convincing himself and us that he's Martin Harris. Some reviewers likened his role to Jason Bourne but I disagree w/that premise. Filmed in Canada. Interesting. Car chase scenes believable. Hanging from the rooftop to evade enemy capture proved clever. Dislikes: January Jones & Diane Kruger are 24+ years younger than Liam. So it was unbelievable that these ladies could be his wife/girlfriend. I didn't buy it for a second, in fact, it was creepy. The river rescue seemed a bit of a stretch for believability (word?). But, ok movie, I will let you think it could really happen in the winter in Canada. During the filming of this movie, Liam's real life wife died.
Well done! Excellent cast who played into the rolls uniqually. January Jones was an exceptional fit for Liam Neeson who again plays us into his hands as he winds us up into intrigue, action and suspense. The riveting car chase is brief but brilliant! Bruno Ganz as Ernst Jürgen was heart warming. This was a film I could and did watch repeatedly. Thank you Jaume Collet-Serra for another terrific title to add to my collection!!
Quite surprised and a bit twisty . Nice ending and scenery of Germany , I liked it a lot .
Too many one liners and ridiculous fight scenes. Terrible.
Excellent Movie. Glad I watched it. Liam was amazing as usual.
I enjoyed the movie--good story telling and acting. I recommend it.
I really enjoyed it. One of my favorite movies ever.
I am a Liam Neeson fan but certainly not of this film. The storyline is so unrealistic to the point of being ridiculous. I turned it off before it ended. The star is for Neeson.
I love Liam even in the StarWars debacle. I love his acting and I love the movies he is in. This one took me by surprise and was very entertaining. Rent this for a great ride. I won’t ruin it for you.
That’s not to say I didn’t truly enjoy the movie, just an observation.
This movie is Awesome and is definitely thrilling...If anyone says otherwise it's because their love of movies has become tainted...It is worth the rent...This one I could purchase ..It is so good!!
This movie was entertaining, exhilarating, and shocking until the plot holes wrecked it. I can forgive some minor holes but not major ones.
Loved it! Finaly something out of the ordinary! Liam is such a good actor! Love the twist...
Same old plot. I've seen this movie a hundred times. Predictable formula, Predictable characters. Why waste the actors', the directors', the audiences time?
And I've seen it done better. MUCH better.
Awesome....worth renting and even buying. Surprising....didnt think I could get surprised by a moovie anymore....this is very entertaining....go for it !!!!!!!
I liked it.
I expected more from the movie. The ending for me was a bit far fetch.
Best suspense-action I've seen in a long time!
This was quite a good movie. There were lots of twists and turns that will keep you guessing right till the end. Well worth the watch.
It was a great movie..it was full of a plot and had actors in it..they acted there roles to create a movie under the direction of the director..it ended when it finished and started well at the beginning of pressing play.
Undecided at first but hung on every moment. Fabulous.
Most people will assume upon seeing the trailer or reading about the context of this movie that this film will be similar to 'Taken'. This movie is not close to 'Taken'. It does not deserve to be associated with ‘Taken’s unique brilliance. It is an average movie and being average it is predictable. As it is predictable it is hard to stay focused while watching it. I recommend ‘Tears of the Sun’ as an equal to ‘Taken’.
need i say more?
Good movie. Would have been nice if it could be rented on Australian iTunes rather than having to buy it.
predictable & implausible
Has a bit of a "Bourne" feel to it once you get into it.
Great movie, very exciting and fantastic acting !! I would recommend it for people who love thrillers!!
ok this is a good film good actors good script but some of the script thats why it dosent get 4 stars still a enjoyable movie good to sit down and watch
Cliched screenplay, second rate performance from Neeson with poor supporting cast. Cringed through most of it, watched in 2 goes thinking it might improve. Yawn.
the performance from liam Neeson really makes you feel sorry for him as the movie goes.. which adds to the always guessing plot..
If you have some time to kill, this is a good way to spend it. I guessed the plot after 20 minutes so that might have made the movie less fun.
This movie is well worth the watch!
Got to love Liam Neeson... he really carries this film big time. The story is reasonably well crafted if not a tad incoherent at times but very entertaining. The general feel is more "European budget" rather than the Hollywood blockbuster special effects type movie but it's certainly worth a look.
