Taken is back. And this time it is not about a retired special agent with a license to kill, having his daughter being kidnapped while he keeps his cool. No this time it is way more exciting. Sure there is not going to be any pervy French guys with sweaty brows yet good looks. And sure there will not be an awesome commercial scene with Bryan Mills (the protagonist who also stars as Qui-Gon Ginn in the epic film Star Wars Episode 1; the Phantom Menace) shoving spikes through a terrorist's knees. Even though that scene was not in the original movie and only ended up in the deleted scenes, it was pretty awesome. And nor will there be an awesome happy ending with sex traders dying from perfect head shots triggered by an almost angry but incredibly calm man who just had his daughter taken from him. No Taken 2 will not have any of that good molasses. But instead it will prove that lighting does strike the same tree twice when the parents of of the girl who got kidnapped in the first film, get kidnapped themselves. There will be drama, a helpless retired killer agent (who I think is rastafarian), his wife that we know nothing about, and whatever Arab/Muslim who they chose to be the villain. Oh and I think that the daughter has to do something to help save the day. Pretty awesome right?
