Taken (2008)

Luc Besson's latest writing project is Taken, which still hasn't been released in the US, and will be released in truncated PG-13 form. Currently, the French DVD/BR is out, as of 11/26

A UK DVD/BR will be out in an extended cut form on Feb 9th. Seems the audio commentary will be gone from the UK version

I was quite looking forward to this, but IMO it was pretty bad (4/10 at very best). Fans of Banlieue 13 might be interested to see what the director did next, but it was pretty unsatisfying stuff.
There is some dialogue in French, but IMO not enough to cause significant problems for non-French speakers.

Re: Taken (2008)

The UK disc has 2 English subtitle options, 1 for just the occasional foreign language dialogue, and 1 for captions for the entire film.

They screwed up a bit on the extras though, The english subtitles are captioned for both the English and French interviews.... not a big deal, but a miss in quality control
