I argued with the male (obvs) co-workers in my office that the amount of vengeful misfortune that befalls this one man is highly unlikely. But in the end, who cares if it’s unrealistic because now we get the second instalment of Taken, the franchise that scares the bejuice out of parents everywhere and makes them disuade their offspring from EVER travelling alone.
Anyway, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills travels to Istanbul, where the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter seeks revenge. The bedraggled father goes after Mills’ wife and precious daughter, who seems incredibly chipper considering she was recently coerced into a prostitution ring.
When it comes down to it you just don’t mess with Bryan Mills, or really any character played by Liam Neeson. The film, which also stars Maggie Grace and Rade Sherbedgia opens on Oct. 5.
