Watch: Liam Neeson in Another Kick Ass 'Taken 2' Theatrical Trailer
"We'll find him. And we're going to have our revenge." Fox has released the new full-length theatrical trailer for Olivier Megaton's Taken 2, starring Liam Neeson as badass CIA operative/father Bryan Mills again. This time, on a vacation to Istanbul with his family, he gets taken with his wife (it's not a spoiler, it's all in the trailer) played again by Famke Janssen. His daughter, Maggie Grace, also returns running around in skimpy clothing. But it all looks awesome, the perfect way to follow up the first movie, can't wait to see it. Also, is it just me, or are they using parts of Hans Zimmer's Dark Knight Rises score in this? Crazy.
Taken 2 is a sequel to the surprise 2008 action hit starring Liam Neeson. In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills (Neeson) and his wife (Famke Janssen) are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter (Maggie Grace) in the first film. French filmmaker Olivier Megaton (of Colombiana and Transporter 3 previously) directs the film from a script by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (who both wrote the original Taken film and Fifth Element together); Besson is also producing. 20th Century Fox is bringing Taken 2 to theaters everywhere starting on October 5th this fall. How was that?

mmm, no. I was excited about it, but after seeing this trailer, my expectations now are very low. I'm pretty sure it won't be the great film the first part was, not even near of it. (and I have an eye for this kind of things, believe me)

The fact that they're setting up for Taken 3 in the Taken 2 trailer kind of bothers me. I love the first one so hopefully this one won't bastardize my memory of that one too much.

As long as vaguely foreign looking terrorist/gangster stereotypes are being crushed by a raspy speaking white guy then I'm in. I could eat that shit up alll daaaay.

What was fun about the first taken film was that going into it you never knew half of what was going to happen despite seeing most of the trailers. I have to agree with some people it feels predictable as if they are just stretching out the original plot again. It should have been left a single film like the first Hangover movie, it's like the Hangover part 2 all over again thinking of taken 2, we know the plot and by now half of us can guess the ending. Just not fun anymore.

He trained Batman, and was a Jedi Master. How the hell can you beat him? You cant.

I should probably go watch the first one, then, eh?

As long as it doesn't suffer from Boondocks Saints syndrome, I'll be happy.
