Movie review: Taken

Last night Alli and I went to see the movie Taken.  It was a good, simple, fun action film.  I loved how bad-ass the main actor is in the movie, and how it was straight and simple, through and through.  

I didn’t feel like a thinking movie.  Maybe because I’m deeply immersed in the book I’m reading now, The Gulag Archipelago, which provides for plenty of thinking.  (Review of that one forthcoming.)

Anyways, the acting is OK, the story is OK, the action fun.  It’s a nice relaxing film.
