Oh No, Not Again! First Trailer For ‘Taken 2’ Arrives With Liam Neeson Having More Problems With Foreigners

Oh No, Not Again! First Trailer For 'Taken 2' Arrives With Liam Neeson Having More Problems With Foreigners

You would think that after having problems with Albanian mafia in “Taken,” Bryan Mills might decide to kick back and relax in America…how about Hawaii? Not so. Instead he takes his wife to Istanbul, and Kim (Maggie Grace) pops her head in as a suprise and before you know it, half the script for “Taken 2” is written.

The international trailer for the film has now dropped, setting up the story that will follow Mills as he has to rescue his wife who falls into the clutches of the vengeful father (Rade Serbedzija) of one of the human traffickers he killed off in the last movie. Then a chain reaction of car chases, parkour, Neeson growling, cell phone calls and pretty much a rehash of the first movie ensues, though it seems they spent a few more dollars and hired a better action choreographer.

Either way, this will probably be another faceless, brainless action movie with Neeson mowing down another wave of anonymous, olive-skinned people all in the name justice or revenge or whatever. Maybe he should’ve hired a better travel agent? Watch below. [The Film Stage]

Man, I liked Taken because it had a little restraint for an action movie – like how the parents didn't get back together in the end… O well


After how much of a douche Famke was in the first movie, I'd let 'em have her


I don't know that another working actor could muster the full conviction behind the line reading of "…what I do best" and not have it sound like a throwback to the 80's action movies I was raised on. If there's an Expendables 3 to be made, I think Sly could do a lot worse than giving Neeson a cursory phone call to gauge interest.


Honestly……. I loved the first one. Liam is amazing…. but really? Taken 2? and this plot about fathers go after Liam…. sounds little bit stupid, but as the first one the action looks amazing


Come on, they could have called it 'Taken Again' and gone full B-movie.
