I declare today in front of God and Jyuu, that Taken is the best action movie I've ever seen.
Better than Lethal Weapon. Better than Transporter. Better than the Riddick movies. Better even than Die Hard.
I saw it today starting from around 4:10pm and I got to have an entire movie where I didn't feel offended or assaulted with sex one time. Beyond that, by far, was the fact that I actually felt my heart start to race by the end of the movie. The fighting scenes made Liam Neeson seem like a mix of John McClain and James Bond in which he was greater than the sum of the parts.
I would and just might pay to see it again just to have someone else there the next time to watch it with me.
