So Bryan has only two people on his secret emergency phone? One of them his daughter? It obviously has a touchscreen and at least three contact storage 'slots'. No reason it should not hold a dozen contacts. A well-prepared ex-spook would at least have the U.S. embassy on speed dial, possibly even the police or the local CIA station. See more »
He slaughtered our men, our brothers, our sons. The dead cry out to us for justice. On their souls, I swear to you. The man who took our loved ones from us, the man who has brought us such pain and sorrow, we will find him. We will bring him here. We will not rest until his blood flows into this very ground.

Everyone in theater was laughing - the movie was that miserable.
The movie was very stupid and naive. Producers did not bother to make anything meaningful assuming that people will go watch it anyway. What a disappointment. Nothing has remained from the realistic first part. This one is more like a naive boring drama with infrequent heroic acts of Liam Neeson. In fact, most of the time he looks like a pompous clown trying to be serious while playing a stupid script. As in a regular cheap movie, bad guys are not really bad and are very respectful to the main characters, always giving them plenty of time to talk and to run away. What irritates even more is ridiculously large amount of product placement. Save your time and money, don't watch this movie in theaters.
