Taken 2 (Unrated Cut) Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the ex-CIA operative who stopped at nothing to rescue his daughter from sadistic kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, it is Bryan and his wife who find themselves "taken" hostage in Istanbul. To survive, Bryan must enlist the help of an unlikely ally and use his brutally efficient skills to take out his heavily-armed foes one by one.

Review: I remember a day when sequels were a dirty word in Hollywood.  Nowadays, its become the fact to the point that trilogies are what we expect.  In the case of Taken I honestly did not expect a sequel.  It makes sense fiscally, since the first film made SO much money, but I wasn't sure where they'd take the story.  Honestly, the story isn't super original, but the fun of this film is really just watching Neeson go nuts on bad guys.  Its kind of the way I feel about Crank makes no sense, but I love it anyway.  This one is action-packed and just as goood as the first one.

Interest Range: Action
