Liam Neeson Talks Up His Killin’ Skills in This ‘Taken 2′ Featurette
It’s amazing that Liam Neeson - at the age of sixty – has become one of cinema’s most reliable asskickers. You’d think he’d be worried about social security or his knees or back, but no. And in ‘Taken 2‘ he has to do the same things he did in the first film (exact revenge for a kidnapping), except this time it’s his ex-wife, and there’s a grudge involved. Neeson talks about his character in this new featurette.
We’re modestly excited for the film – which opens October 5 – as the first film was a rousing piece of no-nonsense action, even if it lacks any memorable action sequences. It worked because the plot was a bullet, and the film didn’t mess around. Here’s the synopsis for the new film:
Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.
And here’s that featurette:
