Bryan Mills, a retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills, will stop at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.
“Taken 2” is a fast-paced action thriller starring Liam Neeson as he reprises the role of Brian Mills, a retired CIA agent. This time around, he and his ex-wife are kidnapped and it is left up to his daughter to help find the pair. With several chase and fight scenes, the action is almost non-stop. There are no plot twists so this is all about the action.
While there is surprisingly little blood, the combat is frequent with many jump scenes bringing the film slightly above our acceptability rating in violence. Unfortunately, there is also a single GD in the film which we consider to be a biblical curse. Due to these elements, we cannot endorse this film as a movie for the family.
