WATCH THE TRAILER FOR TAKEN AFTER THE JUMP
Taken (co-written by Luc Besson of The Professional fame) stars Liam Neeson as some kind of hardass who goes on a kill crazy rampage after some thugs kidnap his daughter (who’s played by the annoying-but-not-as-annoying-as-the-Australian-blonde chick from Lost). The script looks fairly paint by numbers, but this could be good because Liam Neeson growls like a lion, and revenge flicks always have potential. After all, revenge is the most universal human emotion. Or maybe it was love… Wait, is hunger an emotion? Anyway, I love to eat. Touch my food and I’ll fuckin kill you.
Opens September 19th.
Note: Every time I watch this it cuts out at the 1:24 mark. I have no idea why it’s doing that. Robots, maybe?
