Terrorists have the memory of an elephant and a burning need for revenge. Just as in “Die Hard: With a Vengeance,” the antagonist in the action-thriller Taken 2 has a score to settle with the protagonist, who just so happens to be a retired law enforcer. As you may recall in “Taken,” Bryan Mills (Neeson) laid waste to everyone and everything in France as he set out to save his daughter from a human slavery ring. Now Mills tears up Istanbul when the father of one of the slave runners dispatched by Mills kidnaps Mills’ wife. The embedded trailer is rather short, but it gives enough of a sense of what is to come.
Taken 2 stars Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Rade Sherbedgia and Luke Grimes.
Taken 2 disrupts US and UK theaters on October 5, 2012.
