WIN, 8.30pm, M (2008)

Un­likely ac­tion hero Liam Nee­son (Schindler’s List) chan­nels his in­ner John McClane in this solid re­venge thriller penned by pro­lific film­maker Luc Bes­son (The Fifth El­e­ment). Against his bet­ter judg­ment, a re­tired CIA op­er­a­tive (Nee­son) lets his teenage daugh­ter (Mag­gie Grace) travel from Los An­ge­les to France with her girl­friends. But when she’s snatched into the slave trade, the fran­tic fa­ther has to use ev­ery trick in and out of the book to try to save her. Di­rec­tor Pierre Morel serves up an in­tense flick that zips along at break­neck pace.
