Taken … Again.

Someone, somewhere out there, decided that it would be a good idea to make 60 year old Liam Neeson our generations’ action hero.This happened so gradually that I actually started to believe he was quite good.

Then I watched Taken 2 and realized that no; a 60 year old man should not be running on rooftops in Istanbul, killing Albanians, and wearing leather. Like so..

Liam Neeson multi-tasking

Make no mistake, Taken 2 is exactly the same as Taken 1.

Neeson and his on-screen wife are the kidnapees (new word- you heard it here first) and his already psychologically damaged daughter is left to save the day.

The phrase ”You’re going to be taken” is the new ”We’re gonna need a bigger boat” in this movie. It’s catchy and reminds you of the movie you are watching.

Also, this guy is in it:

The bad guy. Again.

No surprise there with the choice of villain and I have to say, it’s always a good choice with this man. Rade Serbedzija can make ordering a cheesecake look dangerous. One of the few highlights of this otherwise vanilla action movie.
