Taken 2 - Trailer
Director Olivier MegatonYear 2012Genre(s) Action, Adventure
Ex CIA agent Bryan Mills mercilessly slaughtered the majority of perpetrators of a European sex trafficking ring in order to retrieve his teenage daughter after they kidnapped her and her friend whilst they were on a trip to Paris in 'Taken'. In 'Taken 2', the relatives of the deceased, headed by Murad the father of one of them, initiate a brutal plot of revenge against Mills as he, his daughter Kim and ex-wife Lenore are on vacation in Istanbul, Turkey. Mills must use his dangerous skills to protect his family once again, but can he defeat the likes of Murad who is determined to sell Kim and Lenore as prostitutes
This action packed thriller sees the formidable abilities of Bryan Mills being put to the test once again. Circling the all too real issues of sex-trafficking and kidnapping amongst Eastern European criminals, 'Taken 2' reiterates the nail-biting, seat-clenching exhilaration that was present in the first film. The movie has a different director to the first, the award winning Olivier Megaton, who also directed 'Transporter 3'. The screenwriters remain the same, however; Luc Besson ('The Transporter' film series, 'The Fifth Element') and Robert Mark Kamen (see Besson plus 'The Karate Kid'). The film is set for release on October 5th 2012 in the UK.
