Well, both movies do have an unpleasant torture scene. The Wind That Shakes the Barley is about the IRA, and Liam Neeson once appeared in a movie about the IRA. I think those are the only similarities, aside from the shooting. Otherwise, The Wind That Shakes the Barley deals with moral issues regarding vengeance, while Taken is pretty black & white on the subject. You know, I'm going to go with the Barley on this one. Taken has its place, but there's not much to it.
Ugh, I meant to say "deals with COMPLEX moral issues regarding vengeance". We need an "EDIT" option!
The Wind That Shakes The Barley is a better film than Taken, but Taken is more entertaining, I'll give it that.
