I’ve mentioned Taken before, and today it ended. Spielberg crafts a nice tale, but it is nothing really special. The ending was more than a bit anticlimatic and weepy. I liked lots of things about the series, but the last episode, which is incidentally titled ‘Taken’ is certainly not the best of the lot. What I liked about and learned from the series is the fact that so less graphics was weilded to tell the tale – much of the alien tales and scifi movies that I’ve seen employs computer animation to make it realistic. Spielberg employs that arm almost grudgingly, and that makes it nice, though I can’t say better or not. I liked this tale, but I’d hoped for a bigger end =)
More about Taken here. Those who missed it today should see it later, from one of the repeats.
