It’s not easy being Eastern European these days. In the past, the leading causes of death were alcohol poisoning, car accidents and organ theft, but now, whenever a death certificate is issued, the words “Liam Neeson” are stamped all over them.
Which is why the stuntmen on Taken 2 most likely had insurance premiums that were through the roof, when Liam Neeson renamed his fists to “Natural” and “Causes”.
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.
Taken 2 arrives in October.
