If there are 3 things that Liam Neeson’s character in Taken 2, Bryan Mills, is very good at, it’s hurting Eastern European thugs in highly inventive ways, shooting Eastern European thugs with a variety of fireams and looking moody as he contemplates which other Eastern European country he can de-populate next with his bare hands.
And now you can see him do all 3 in these newly released images for director Olivier Megaton’s sequel to Pierre Morel’s surprise 2010 hit.
Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.
I love how after a poster, a teaser trailer, a trailer and now these pics of pretty much nothing but badass Liam Neeson, they included a shot of him just sharing a milkshake with his wife (Famke Janssen) as if to assure us that yes, Bryan Mills is indeed still a human being with feelings.
Unfortunately for the guys trying to harm his family, those are feelings of nothing but calculated rage and violence.
