I just finished watching the movie, Taken, with Liam Neeson. I LOVED it! It's violent, totally unbelievable, but man oh man, Liam kicks some booty!
So what is that about? In real life, I attempt to be a peaceful person and avoid violence as much as possible. Yet, I love crazy unbelievable action movies--Taken, Face Off, Fight Club, Sin City, Pulp Fiction. What is up with that? It seems like a complete break with who I think I am.
What is it about us, humans, that seem to almost crave violence and carnage? Is that simply part of our brokeness or is it more complicated than that?
