Sequels make me squirm a bit. In a lot of cases, it’s really difficult to come up some as good as an original. Taken has to be in a list of films I never get bored watching, even though I know I always point out that when Liam Neeson is posing as a French cop to the bad guys, he’s speaking in English. He should be speaking in French. None the less Taken is a (literally) bloody great action movie.
I just hope Taken 2 doesn’t let the side down. It’s due for release in Irish cinemas on October 5th 2012.
Wouldn’t you hate to be on the other side of a phone call from Neeson’s character, they all seem to include the words.. ‘going to be taken’. Bummer
