Taken 2---Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace

Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is still a retired CIA operative who recently rescued his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) from a gang of Albanian Human Traffickers. In the process of saving his daughter he killed eight of the gang. And, the leader of the Albanian Gang---Murad Krasniqi (Rade Serbedzija) is out for revenge for the death of his son. He has two sons left and he means to keep them, so they remained behind as he the leader travels to Istanbul to carry out his vendetta against Bryan Mills.

As we learned before in Taken that Bryan Mills retired to live near his daughter in California, so this is where he now spends a lot of his time minus various jobs he takes in security all over the world. He still has his best friend Sam (Leland Orser) who he depends on in any emergency.

His ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) who he calls Lenny---is separated from her second husband who turned out---not-so-nice, because he cancelled a trip they planned together as a family to try and mend all the tears in their marriage. So, when Bryan stops to pick-up his daughter Kim for a driving lesson he finds all this out, therefore, being a good person invites them to join him in Istanbul after his job is over and they surprised him by showing up.

This is when their lives become filled with action and the wrong kind of adventure in the nest of heartless criminals---while frantically trying to stay alive. Bryan’s skills and his daughter’s bravery helped to keep them alive. But Murad Krasniqi is out for blood and he wants the family captured so he can take them to his son's burial site and kill them all.

So if you haven’t seen this movie---I say buy it like I did ---so I can see it over and over with my friends and family. Good movie, and these actors and actresses are great together making the movie come alive. You will  feel every emotion, the extreme pain, the anguish felt while Bryan tried to free himself and his ex-wife. Don’t miss this one if you like action.
