Taken 2 

Liam, you can do better

  • Hey Liam, sup?

A whole Albanian village just hates Liam Neeson so much in the sadly routine Taken 2. Returning to the role of a loving father with a certain set of skills (re: murdering people), Neeson is joined in this go-around by his family on a business trip to Istanbul. As you might expect, things go badly. It seems the relatives of all the people killed in the first movie are out for revenge, but the crusaders are such a disposable threat you'll wonder why Neeson doesn't wrap this all up in twenty minutes. Mountains of prelude in Los Angeles and a complete lack of surprises means the film never reaches any enjoyable intensity. A literal crash course in driving with distractingly mature-looking teenage daughter Maggie Grace is unfortunately the only time Taken 2 finds that sweet spot balancing between action and lunacy.
