Liam Neeson is reprising his role as the toughest badass dad in the land, in Olivier Megaton‘s Taken 2. I really dug Taken, but Megaton is the hack director that made last year’s disastrous Colombiana, so naturally I’ll be approaching this sequel with my feelers!
Maggie Grace‘s role gets a bump, which is also a questionable decision that I don’t think will land all that well.
Still, this newly released domestic theatrical trailer is loaded up full of car chases and shootouts, which is exactly what we want in a Taken sequel. It doesn’t look bad, but it doesn’t look all that exciting. I hope I’m wrong.
Taken 2 opens on October 5th, 2012.
