On its release,Taken wasn't given much of a fanfare, but turned into a cult classic in the following years.
The role re-ignited Liam Neeson's career, and turned him into an A-list fighting action hero, but has also typecast him into playing virtually the same role in all of his films.
Here are the films that Neeson has starred in since, where he pretty much plays Taken's Bryan Mills.
Liam Neeson plays: Martin Harris, a doctor who wakes up after a four-day coma to discover that his identity has been taken and he must fight to get to the truth.
Imagine Bryan Mills having to investigate to discover what's happened to his identity (rather than his daughter) but not skilled at fighting.
The Grey (2011)
Liam Neeson plays: John Ottway, an Alaskan oil driller whose plane crashes in a blizzard and must fight off a pack of hungry wolves.
Imagine Bryan Mills, but fighting blood-thirsty wolves instead of human-trafficking Arabs.
