Liam Neeson will be returning to screens as Bryan Mills in exactly one month from today in Taken 2, directed by Olivier Megaton. I’m certainly looking forward to checking it out, but I’ll be approaching it with hesitation, because of the director and because most of the revealed footage, which is far from promising or original.
I’m sure at the very least Taken 2 will be entertaining and ass-kicking, but am I really the only one that shrugs every time I see a TV spot or trailer? It just feels completely unnecessary and excessive.
YouTube has the scoop on the latest trailer, which is cut up from all of the previous footage, plus they have a clip deemed the “Missing Scene”.
Watch them both below:
Taken 2 opens on October 5th, 2012. Are you excited for it?
