Taken

Post by UncleMao » 16 Aug 2008 21:50

What if Death Wish, French Connection, Kiss of The Dragon, Commando and the Bourne Trilogy had a film baby?

Not a regular baby but a hardcore MMA, ultimate fighting devil spawned demon baby that started of nice and sweet like Kramer vs Kramer then turned into a close quarter hand-to-hand limb-snapping knife-fighting Krav Maga style head-stomping fuck fest about a former covert op specialist trying to locate his kidnapped daughter.

What if his moral compass was broken and stuck on "Save daughter- Fuck everyone else" ?

Well that film is Taken. It is for me, right up there with the Bourne films if not a touch better with the hand-to-hand stuff.

93 tight minutes of no fucking around. This turns on a dime from estranged family drama, to suspense film to straight adrenaline chug at about the 20 minute mark.

Fasten your seatbelt and hang on. This is old school fuck-them-up BADNESS!

Opens stateside in September.

Plot nitpickers should just fuck off and eat camel cum right now.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Famke look like an aged Anne Hathaway in those billboards. I had to check who the female lead was.

Liam looks like Neo in that first poster, and like 007 in the fourth one. :D
