"It's a flesh wound!"

That line from Taken deserves a spot on the top shelf, right beside "I'm going to need a hacksaw."

According to David "Buzzkill" Edelstein: "The script, by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, panders to macho American wet dreams that feel distinctly antiquated in the new age of American non-exceptionalism. And in a just universe, the idea that rich white American virgins are the prime targets of sex-slavers would make tens of thousands of captive underage Asian girls rise up shouting, 'That is the last straw!'"

Quel tool.

I wonder if David Edelstein would like to explain to my cousin Yvonne, who is neither rich nor American but is white, what exactly those people who attempted to abduct her at an airport in London had in mind...other than human trafficking that is.
