Taken 2. The opening scene with an old Azerbaijan dude speaking with some village kinsmen in English in a remote village is nothing short of incredulous. Why didn't they speak in their native language?? Havent they heard of 'subtitles'? The first Taken was way better imo.
The tawdry grandeur and cruel magic of a dying circus in depression-era America is the lost-world setting for this romantic and suspenseful tale starring Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, and Christopher Waltz. The Great Depression was a massive re-boot. Many things, many people, made it. Others didn’t. Old Hollywood meets modern sensibilities in this very engaging movie. Hal Holbrook does a nice "Rose Dawson" turn as the ancient, and lone surviving, reminiscer.
