In the newest trailer for Taken 2, Maggie Grace asks Liam Neeson what he is going to do. He responds in typical action film language with – I’m going to do what I do best. He thinks he’s talking about rescuing people. However, as he has now had his daughter kidnapped twice and his wife once, I think that letting his loved ones fall into the hands of international sex traffickers might actually be what he does best. Still, I loved Taken and I know that I’m going to be first in for Taken 2, even if every time I hear the name, I want to instinctively add “Electric Boogaloo” to the title.
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
