Tear Jerker: Taken
Several points when the action slows down and you see how afraid Bryan is that he'll never see his baby girl again. Particularly the scene where she's taken and you can see Bryan's eyes welling up with tears as he hears her being carried away by the sex traffickers.
It's the kind of thing that defines Adult Fear, and it's the only moment in the entire film that you can see Bryan feeling powerless. All he can do is listen for clues and swear that he'll find her. And then the iconic, gloriousRoaring Rampage of Revenge begins.
Same thing happens in the sequel, only this time it's Lenore that gets taken away.
