Taken 2, 2012.
Directed by Olivier Megaton.
In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter.
When Taken came out back in 2008 nobody knew it would go on to be a huge success. It was actually a pretty decent action movie and single-handily relaunched the career of Liam Neeson. Taken ended on a fine note and didn't really leave anything open for a sequel. However, last year we were given Taken 2 and to nobody's surprise it turned out to be a sequel that was completely unnecessary.
The story here, while a simple revenge tale, looked as if it could be somewhat interesting given what the trailers showed. The problem is the film isn't executed well at all and keeps you wondering throughout why »
