The first thing that jumps out is how much Liam Neeson is missed. Clive Standen is fine as a young Bryan Mills. But Neeson really made the movie what it is. Think about it, that movie really doesn't bring anything new to the table but it was wildly popular and a good portion of that was due to Neeson. So when he's missing, there really isn't anything exciting and unique about this show. It's just another by the books thriller with the usual twists, the fight scenes, etc. Standen doesn't do a bad job but he doesn't have the chops to elevate the show above the material the way Neeson did with the movie.
WILL I WATCH IT AGAIN?
Probably not. I'm more likely to watch the movie again next time it's on TV.
