    I was wondering how many of you have seen Taken and enjoyed the movie. Please no spoilers! I'm just curious for what age is it appropriate? I have a young lady who I take to the movies once a month. Kind of a kid sister type deal. She REALLY wants to see the movie, but I didn't know if it would be too intense for her. Her parents have given me the ok to take her to ANYTHING, but thats not my style. If she is going to be terrified I would rather chose something else.

    THANKS!

    A movie about young women being kidnapped, drugged, tortured and forced into a life as sex slaves. Probably not the best idea.

    16 I'd say, give or take depending on the kid's maturity level. Violence is pretty intense, but not graphic. Some prostitution/illegal sex market elements to the film as well, but it's not explicit sexually.

    This was one of the more violent PG-13 movies I've ever seen, to be honest. The movie was awesome, but I'm not sure what ages should be watching this... 15 maybe?

    How old is the girl?

    She is a very mature 14, but has a weak stomache at times.

    If you aren't going to see it before you decide, then I wouldn't take her.

    If she's as mature as you say, she should be fine. The movie hardly has any language or sexual content (with the exception of the whole prostitution thing), but the violence is intense at times. I'd compare it to The Bourne Identity movies.
