Aged bad-ass. One final mission. Estranged adult daughter. Luc Besson, you’ve done it again.
Everyone’s favourite stealth Irishman is back, shooting even more disenfranchised Albanians in the statistically inevitable Taken 2. But why would you subject yourself to any of Liam Neeson’s new films (except The Grey) without a really massive drink? Well, now you don’t need to! CAUTION: do not attempt to ski after playing this drinking game.
A year on from the events of Taken, Bryan Mills (Neeson) had hoped to retire in peace but when he and his wife are kidnapped by a gang looking to exact revenge, he is forced to re-employ the very particular set of skills which saw Taken become such a a cult hit. Taken 2 is a pretty generic action film with none of the brutality or vibrancy of its predecessor but it has enough spectacle to ensure that cinemas will still get a significant number of bums on seats.
Stop taking his stuff, everyone. You know he doesn’t like that.
