“I have… a very particular set of skills…”

We fully acknowledge that this post has nothing… zero… nada… zippo… to do with classic rock. But you knew that already and we want to thank you, dear reader, for coming to this page with the expectation that you would get to watch Liam Neeson’s Taken phone speech. And we’re not going to disappoint you.

In fact, we’re going to offer it two ways: as our Classic Video (below) and with the full script, so you can read it just as Neeson’s character, Bryan Mills, delivered it.

“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.”

Wow! One minute of pure genius. Previous generations may have had their Oliviers, their Grants and their Gables. Neeson is ours and he was obviously born to play the BAMF scenes.

By the way, the five Best Actor nominees for 2009 were Jeff Bridges (who won for his role in Crazy Heart… yeah, we never heard of it either), George Clooney, Colin Firth, Morgan Freeman and Jeremy Renner.

While we’re on the subject of Taken, how is it possible that the best and worst actors can be cast in the same movie? Neeson is obviously the former; Maggie Grace is without a doubt the latter. If you haven’t seen the compilation of her Taken running scenes, you’re in for a treat…
