Movie review mini: Taken

Most of our Back Talk movie reviews reflect an effort at contemplative analysis of some picture we watched with thoughtful attention before meticulously relaying an opinion to you, the reader … bla bla.

Advocate photographer Robert Bunch saw "Taken," starring Liam Neeson — we asked him what he thought about it and received the following review — I found Robert’s to-the-point tone refreshing and perfect for pre-weekend movie talk … and far less wordy than one of mine:

TAKEN
Liam Neeson’s daughter is kidnapped by sex traders in Paris. He flies to Gay Paree and kills half of France and gets his daughter back. He is ex CIA badass. Makes James Bond and Jason Bourne look puny in comparison. Non-stop action and violence, very intense movie, you’ll feel wrung out afterwards. May be best action movie I’ve ever seen. On a scale of 1 to 10 its a 25. —RB
