While I enjoyed the movie Taken, I have a bad viewing history with it. It was released just before my friends and I went on a month long backpacking trip across Europe and my parents became convinced Paris was full of criminals trafficking third year university students.
While my parents are pretty cool, they don’t have Mission Impossible skills like Liam Neeson, which added another level of concern. Old Liam NEVER loses his cool in the movie even when the odds are stacked against him. If it was any other parent in the universe they might act differently. This dude, Captain Hippo wanted to investigate what would happen if a real dad was put in that situation. They couldn’t find any, so they used their own. The result is a meatball loving dude who has to decide between watching the next episode of Home Improvement and rescuing his son from the bad guys.
Well, he gives it his best shot.
