After the events of Taken life has slowly gotten back to some form of normality for Bryan Mills and his family. But in Albania the families of the men he killed while rescuing his daughter are burying their dead. And vowing vengeance.
I really enjoyed the first Taken. It came with very little buzz. It was just an action flick, but a well directed, well acted one. Sure it was racist and sexist and no characters just action. But it was enjoyable tosh. Unfortunately this one still has all the negatives of the first film, but none of the good points. It has action, but shot so shakily that you can’t really see it. And oh my god the script is abysmal.
