Bryan Mills: The Ultimate Action Movie Dad

There are plenty of awesome dads in action movies; John McClane in the Die Hard series, Arnie in True Lies, Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon and many more.

As it’s Father’s Day I thought I would pay tribute to one of the more recent badasses: Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills in Taken.

He is a retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills as we all know and when some human trafficking scumbags decide to kidnap his daughter while she is on vacation in Paris he threatens to “tear down the Eiffel Tower” to find her.

 

He comes across as over-protective at first but when his daughter is taken he is proven correct and has taught us all one important lesson. Never go anywhere. Ever.

Happy Father’s Day everyone.

Anyone Remember The Ninja Wars (1982)?

There are no words for how awesomely bonkers this movie is; it’s like a surreal dream with lashings of over the top bloodshed and hilariously unconvincing decapitations. I love it! The story is as follows: A fortuneteller pro...
