He does the same thing all over again; the only difference is he was taken and yet the movie is a box office hit.

Every action movie fan knows this lines “I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you’re looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills…” and then add the whole jumping, killing, electrocuting and biting up bad guys Taken (2008) was born.

I wanted to be Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) this guy to me is better than Jason Borne but the producers of this movie must have been on something to have thought Taken 2 will be exceptional. A movie that deals you no surprises from the very get go is a movie I rather not see.

The movie relied so much on the idea, “Hey! It is me again, the guy from Taken1”. The French duo of Olivier Megaton and Luc Besson who made the movie Columbianain 2011, came together to deliver a movie that had an exceptional part one but a disappointing part two.

Taken 2 did have its own story; Bryan Mills goes to Istanbul, his ex and daughter join him and they were having a nice get away.

Now the guys that Bryan killed in part one, well one of them, the parent actually didnt get the memo, or didn’t bother going to cinemas 4 years ago to see the movie of how his son was killed, so he decided to take revenge and take Bryan and Ex-wife (Jean Grey, Famke Janssen).

Bad guys always make the mistake of leaving the hero alive long enough for him to think up an escape plan, this guys weren’t different, instead of shooting him when they had the chance, they wanted him to suffer, the repercussion of that was known of them will be alive to tell the tale to the other fools who decides to come after Bryan in Taken 3, if the producers decide to go that far.

So Bryan and wife get taken, daughter helps dad escape and dad kills everybody.

One thing you have to give taken 2 though is that it was fast, I like fast paced action movie they make you smile.

Well if you have the chance go see this movie, but wait till the ticket price drops.
