Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the ex-CIA operative who stopped at nothing to rescue his daughter from sadistic kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, it is Bryan and his wife who find themselves “taken” hostage in Istanbul. To survive, Bryan must enlist the help of an unlikely ally and use his brutally efficient skills to take out his heavily-armed foes one by one.
I remembered the first movie where his daughter is "taken", and though it didn't blow me away, I liked it.
This movie picked right up where that one left off basically.
It wasn't very exciting in the beginning, but it picked up. Lots of guns and blowing things up!!
Liam Neeson plays a bad ass C.I.A. agent that knows some really creative ways of escaping captivity. That alone made the film worth watching. Total genius I tell you.
The bad guys never stop chasing Liam either, so there is room in the end for a third film.
