The Taken sequel follows up the story of Bryan Mills, who traveled to Paris to rescue his daughter after she had been… TAKEN. Seriously, they are making a new Taken movie, which will either be called Taken 2, Taken Reloaded, Tooken or Tooked, depending on which coast of the USA you were educated on. Either way, shit gets real when once again, the most incompetent father of modern times, manages to piss off enough people to have his family kidnapped not once, but TWICE!
In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter. Get it? Now the hunter becomes the hunted, and Liam Neeson has to save his wife this time around, while his daughter assists him however she can. Oh, Famke Janssen is playing his wife, which is pretty awesome, because I love Framke.

What’s Good About Taken 2?
Taken was a solid action film based primarily on the performance by Liam Neeson. As long as he comes back, Taken 2 should be fine.
What’s Bad About It?
I’ve TAKEN some time to think about this, and I can’t think of what can be TAKEN for the sequel. Maybe the bad guys will TAKE his wallet. Which means that this time, it’s personal.
Our Clever Prediction
Taken 2: The Streets (as it should be named) will pave the way for Taken 3D, which is set a new precedent for 3D films. You’ll see Liam Neeson TAKE things out of the air, right in front of you. Crazy.
