It’s unclear to me why people continue to think it’s a solid idea to take things from Liam Neeson. If the last five years have given us anything, it’s the undeniable fact that any role inhabited by the Irish actor is going to come equipped with a “particular set of skills” – and we’re not just talking about the movie where he actually says that.
Fresh off bare-knuckle boxing wolves in the Alaskan tundra, Liam Neeson is back to mow down some European kidnappers in Taken 2, the sequel to the highly successful action thriller Taken.
In that film, as you remember, kidnappers “took” his daughter are sold her into sexual slavery. Bad idea. This time, the crazy sons of bitches are apparently dumb enough to try and take him and his wife.
In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter.
That’s all we have so far in terms of plot, and it’s really all we need. Whatever Taken 2 lacks in creative titling, it makes up for in badassery. If you don’t believe me, check out the international trailer that just hit the interwebs:
Excited? The film is set to open on October 5th and as you can see returns much of the same cast as before. We’re just happy to see Liam Neeson take on the most interesting man in the world.
