Liam Neeson reinvented himself as an action star in "Taken," and this melodrama keeps him in that mode. He plays an attendee at a European conference whose trip is interrupted by his involvement in a car accident, putting him into a coma.
When he comes to, he discovers another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity, which some murderous people don't want the real fellow to reclaim. Diane Kruger ("National Treasure") plays a cabdriver who helps him. January Jones ("Mad Men") and Frank Langella also star. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
