Taken 2 is a highly engaging action movie starring Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, and Famke Janssen. The movie shines with suspenseful action sequences in very exotic urban areas around Istanbul. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat and holding your breath all the way until the very end! In Taken 2, the roles are reversed from its predecessor. In Taken 2, Bryan Mills (Neeson) goes to help his daughter Kim (Grace) practice for her upcoming driving test. Upon arriving to his ex-wife Lenor's house, it is revealed that his ex-wife Lenore (Janssen), is having marital problems with her current husband, and they have cancelled their vacation to China. Bryan makes the suggestion that Lenore and their daughter Kim meet him in Istanbul while he is there on a job. Though hesitant at first, they end up surprising him and showing up in Istanbul. This time around, however, Bryan and Lenore are taken by father of the first Taken's antagonist - who pledged to find the man responsible for his son's death, leaving Kim as the potential hero this time around. Mills now has to become the director of operations, instead of the infiltrator, and lead his daughter the best he can to help save them from death, and keep her from being caught and meeting the same fate. It will not be easy though, as she is constantly being chased and always seems to be within a few seconds of being captured, it certainly creates several theatrical heart skipping moments. This film yet again, shows the classic battle between good and evil, but mixes it up with so many realistic action sequences and gorgeous special effects, that it is sure to keep a smile on the biggest action movie fan's face! Something this film does so well is show how a parent's love for their child is one of the greatest forces on earth, and this movie even brings a human element to the villain's aspect as well, introducing the same concept. It is certainly a wild ride of emotions, loud explosions, gun shots, and breath taking suspense that seldom stops to allow for relaxation. It is certainly one of the must see films of 2012, and will leave quite the lasting impression on any movie goers interested in being taken on an adrenaline wild ride!
