Liam Neeson returns in complete badass form in Taken 2, directed by Olivier Megaton. This time they’re coming after him and the latest poster (via Empire) makes that very clear.
I’m still not sure what to think of this sequel. I really do like Neeson and I’d love to see him take down an entire mob again, but there’s something about the first one that came out of nowhere and surprised me. I don’t think Megaton has it in him to recreate that magic, but hopefully Neeson can pick up whatever slack there is and make the film entertaining on some level.
Taken 2 kicks and punches its way into theaters on October 5th, 2012.
