Here’s another quick post just before I go to bed.
I loved Taken. That was a top quality grown-up action flick with my countryman Liam Neeson killing his way across Paris to find the men who kidnapped his daughter. And now, here’s the sequel. This time, it’s his wife that gets the head-bag treatment while they’re all in Istanbul, and just to keep things vaguely making sense it is the father of one of the men Bryan Mills (played by Liam) killed who is behind this effort. He is taking revenge for his dead son, handily neglecting the fact that sonny got himself killed by fucking with the man’s daughter.
But anyway, that’s enough trying to explain the plot. Feast your peepers on this cracking new trailer.
No mention of his special skills? For shame!
But seriously, I like it. It looks just moody enough, and it’s good to see Neeson taking advantage of his late-blooming action star reputation while he still has a couple of believable years left in the tank. What do you guys think?
