    Taken

    I Love this movie, and the acting was great. If you believe in aleins this is one of best movies movies about aleins almost like a soapopera. The Aleins and space craft are so real looking in this movie, but they arnt the bad guys the militery is. A Must See movie.

    Taken..... an original television series

    Being the huge scifi buff that I am, I was thrilled to receive this for Christmas. It first introduced me to Dakota Fanning also. Basically it is a series of events about humans that were taken by aliens and now some of the aliens are here. Especially for tv, it was very well done. I felt like I was watching a movie. If you have ever liked Star Trek, The 4400, Heros, Smallville, or Supernatural, you will enjoy Taken!

    One of the Best I've Seen

    As a UFO afficionado, I'm generally drawn to this movie genre. While most alien movies are cheezy in the extreme, this series was interesting, its characters believable and empathetic, and the storyline well developed and engaging, with the series concluding in the only way it really could. While Dakota Fanning doesn't appear until towards the end, she steals your heart and doesn't let go. If there is any downside to this series, it's only in that it's a little "Starman-ish" in the sense that the aliens' altruistic interference is a little too warm and fuzzy to be fully credible. Altogether, it was a wonderful series, one that I would highly recommend!

    way better than your good ole' epics

    i've seen this mini series SEVERAL times,its great how it links these three families and how there story spans of many decades. It stays true to the story line adding just the right amount of insight into these people's lives so that you know something about them but not getting sidetracked from the main story

    One of the greatest mini-series ever!!

    Know wonder it won an Emmy! For pure entertainment or for those conspiracy theorist. This mini-series covers all aspects of UFO sighting, abductions, even crop circles. There is also the drama of three famlies lives and how they intertwine starting with the Roswell incident. TAKEN spanes 50 years and three generations, which makes it a 10-part mini-series. Don't worry, you'll be throughly entertained, from start to finish. You may also see some faces that are familiar from other science fiction shows and dramas.

    Probably the BEST mini-series ever created

    as many public viewers prepare for the sci-fi's channel exclusive The New Roswell: Kecksburg Exposed, many of us want to know more about government cover-ups and secrecy about unidentified flying objects (UFO's), and what a better way to provide us with the best detail yet on alien abductions and individuals that cope with it. spielberg....you are the ^%^*())_Y%$ MAN!!

    The truth is out there

    This was a great series. I cant wait for the dvd to come out, I missed a couple of the broadcasts but really liked the one's that i caught. This should prove to be one of the coolest TV mini-series to hit DVD and hopefully it's loaded with tons of extras.
