Taken 2: Electric Boogaloo

Liam Neeson is back as the former ass kick operative Bryan Mills in Taken 2. This time he's being chased by mobsters out for blood.
Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, a retired CIA operative who decimated an Albanian slave-trading ring to rescue his kidnapped daughter. A year later, on a trip to Istanbul, Mills gets a surprise visit from his daughter, Kim, and his wife, Lenore. The happy reunion turns sour when Lenore is taken by gangsters serving Murad, father of one of the fallen Albanian criminals. With his wife held hostage and Kim on the run, Mills must once again use his lethal skills to track down his wife and eliminate all who stand in his way.

I was a big fan of the first film, it reminded me of Luc Besson's Leon: The Professional. It worked as a standalone action movie, but I don't think it needed a sequel. That doesn't mean I won't see it. Come on, the director's name is Olivier Megaton, could you get a better director with a more kick-ass name?
