Any post-2008 film or television show which was somewhat influenced by the style of the Taken film series (which itself was influenced by "24", James Bond, Jason Bourne and Die Hard films.

Please note that while Taken was followed by it's sequels Taken 2 and Tak3n, those are excluded as this category pertains to anything outside of that franchise somewhat directly similar to it. Often any film outside of starring just Liam Neeson can just be a rather aged and popular film star playing a badass who is betrayed and forced to mow down various goons who get in his/her way. Many of these take-offs on the formula have starred the likes of Denzel Washington, Jason Patric, Salma Hayek, Bruce Willis, Sean Bean, Gina Carano, Pierce Brosnan, Ashley Judd, Nicolas Cage, Mel Gibson and Keanu Reeves.
