      "He may be a pre-A-Team Liam Neeson best known as the ‘mourning one’ from Love Actually" What the??? Are you saying that Neeson was an unknown until he did the bleedin A-Team?? What about Oskar Schindler? Darkman? Rob Roy? Priest Vallon? Michael Collins? Ras Al-Ghul? Qui Gon Jinn for christs sake!!!?? Neeson had been a leading man in Hollywood for nearly 20yrs before he did Taken. He's worked with some of the best directors in the business and to say that anyone with Schindlers List, Star Wars AND Batman Begins on their CV is unknown is ridiculous. Poor research TF!

      I'd have gone with "The Horseman" over Taken. Great central performance and incredibly violent

      Yeah I think Liam Neeson is a bit better known for The Phantom Menace and Schindler's List than for Love Actually.

      Have to agree with the above - where is Dead Man's Shoes, one of the best British revenge thrillers ever. Paddy Considine is plain scary and the drug scene is one of the most trippy pieces of filmmaking ever made!

      I also have to agree, Dead Man's shoes should be on this list.

      Billy Myers from Scream, really?? not to be pedantic for pedantry's sake, but for a film magazine you get a lot of things wrong that you should know. It's Billy Loomis.

      Once Upon A Time in America was Leone's masterpiece and that's exactly what he thought until it was butchered by the American Studio.

      and just because Goodfellas had elements of revenge in it doesnt make it a so-called 'revenge-flick'

      Henry Fonda starred in Once Upon a Time in the West, not Henry Ford. Henry was anti-Semetic founder of the Ford Motor Corp. Is there anyone doing ANY fact-checking at Total Film?
