Liam Neeson frowns upon abducting, drugging and selling his daughter into sex slavery.
Contrary to popular belief, Ayo! Scott is not an absolute savage. OK, he will treat her like a prostitute ("her" being any woman you care deeply for) but he absolutely will not treat her like a child prostitute. Ayo!'s just morally decent like that. Seriously. Ayo! loves the Captain Save-A-Ho genre, in which heroic older men attempt to rescue girls who've been forced into the sex trade (presumably so the young hotties will be grateful and have sex with them one day when it's slightly less inappropriate). Films like Taxi Driver, Eastern Promises, Trade and Holly are not only entertaining but also serve to remind Ayo! that he shouldn't pay for sex unless it's with a consenting adult (as for non-pay sex, the "grass on the field" rule still applies).
The latest film to keep Ayo!'s moral compass pointed due north is Taken, a heartwarming father-daughter love story about sex slavery and killing the fuck out of bad guys with bare hands...
Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is a former CIA operative who's retired to reconnect with his teenage daughter Kim (Maggie Grace). Standing in the way are his bitter ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) and her wealthy new husband who likes to stunt and buy love by giving horses as birthday gifts. Although he can't go dollar-for-dollar with this sugar daddy, Mills proves his worth when his daughter is abducted by sex traffickers on a trip to Paris. Using intelligence techniques, a talent for torture and his striking hand-to-hand kill skills, the determined dad declares World War III on Europe in the hope that he'll find and save his little girl before she's lost forever. It actually kind of makes Ayo! feel bad for the horse that will always be the second best gift a girl could get.
If you love intense action and hate children being drugged and forced into the sex industry, throw down to see Taken. After all, it's not like you were gonna perv out and use that money to support child prostitution, right? Right??? Check out the trailer and determine whether you are for or against child sex slavery.
