I know that most of our competitions are directly related to writing, authors or creatives. So I realise that this one is a long bow. But I love Liam Neeson action movies! So I had to share this with you.
Ever since I saw him in Taken, I’ve been a fan. And I’ll admit that’s in no small part due to him delivering one of the best lines in movie history. In fact, Esquire magazine stated: “Taken is the rare case of a movie franchise that has grown out of a single speech.”
If you’ve been living under a rock, here it is:
“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.” — Liam Neeson, Taken

And, just for giggles, here is Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane doing his version in the voice of Kermit the Frog:
