Everyone I know loves Taken. Liam Neeson’s first, real attempt at an action-thriller is a very successful, very entertaining and very intense thrill-ride. His charisma and exceptional acting talent really do add gravitas to what could have been a very basic action flick. He ain’t so bad at throat-chopping and shooting people either.
The sequel, imaginatively named Taken 2, is set for release on October 5th and here are a few shots from the movie that have been released over at Entertainment Weekly.
Well the character with the particular set of skills, Bryan Mills, is back and this time it’s personal…again. Him, his ex-wife Famke Janssen and supposedly his daughter Maggie Grace are kidnapped in Instanbul by a gangster whose son was killed years earlier by one Bryan Mills. Expect much exploding and flying bullets and punch throwing to ensue.
