I took my parents to go see Taken earlier this afternoon and I have to say that it was just as good the second time around. The only difference between the DVD I saw earlier this week and the theatrical version was once scene in which Neeson’s character tortures a man in order to obtain information about his daughter. For some reason or another the theatrical version cut out the part where he jabs knitting needles (?) into the man’s legs and then hooks them up to jumper cables attached to the room’s light switch. And in addition to this they also cut out about a 3 second shot of the man while he is being electrocuted in which we see the vein in his neck bulge and his body convulse. I’m not sure what the reason was for these omissions since neither small part was gory or particularly graphic, but the scene works well with or without them.
