Liam Neeson killed about 20 guys on his way to retrieving his daughter from France in "Taken." That earns him the top spot on our list of badass-dad movies.

1. Liam Neeson, "Taken," (2008).

2. Vinnie Jones, "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," (1998).

3. Christian Bale, "3:10 to Yuma," (2007).

4. Arnold Schwarnzenegger, "Commando," (1985).

5. Nicolas Cage, "Raising Arizona," (1987). Okay, not a badass. But he did defeat the Lone Biker of the Apocalypse.
