The following is a list of films inspired by, often compared to or heavily influenced by the style of the Taken franchise (as well as it's imitators). Any film/show that inspired Taken itself isn't listed here though (i.e. James Bond, Commando, Die Hard, 24, Bourne Identity, Man on Fire, etc.).
Please note that while Taken was followed by it's sequels Taken 2 and Tak3n, those are excluded as this category pertains to anything outside of that franchise somewhat directly similar to it. Often any film outside of starring just Liam Neeson can just be a rather aged and popular film star playing a badass who is betrayed and forced to mow down various goons who get in his/her way. Many of these take-offs on the formula have starred the likes of actors and actresses such as Denzel Washington, Jason Patric, Salma Hayek, Bruce Willis, Gina Carano, Pierce Brosnan, Ashley Judd, Nicolas Cage, Mel Gibson, Sean Bean and Keanu Reeves.
This list is an on-going work in progress so please be patient or feel free to contribute to the page here.
