fusillade762: You'd think after the first time he'd just make sure his family avoided overseas trips altogether.

this film is PG-13

I was about to say "F*ck that noise" but then I looked up the first one and it was PG-13 too. Wow. So the HERO of the film can torture a guy to death and it still gets a PG-13? I know they edited that scene for the US release, but come ON.

It was still one of the most intensely violent movies to get a PG-13 in some time.

I just don't think this movie lends itself to a sequel. By now, Liam Neeson's wife and daugter know better than to let him in on their vacation plans. The guy has a worse track record than Clark Griswold and Amelia Earhart combined.

However, it does lend a good script idea for Taken 3.


Famke: So, after we get out of the museum, we're going to take a taxi to....
Maggie: Shhhhhhhhh, he's coming
Liam: (going to the fridge for a beer) Hey girls, what's going on?
Famke: Oh, uh, nothing. Say, isn't the game about to start?
Liam: (looks at watch) Oh, shiat, you're right. Gotta run. (Goes into living room)

Cut forward to Famke and Maggie going on a relaxing vacation, Liam staying home, drinking beer, watching "24" DVDs and calling Sutherland a pussy, and using his "special set of skills to fix the fence." The girls come back from vacation 5 days later, safe and sound, and everyone's happy.

theurge14: Richard Roma: Is it as bad as the first one was?

The leads were weak.

That's high praise!

"OK listen closely...you are going to be taken...I know what you're thinking, 'Is this guy crazy? Is he just having weird Eurotrash friends from his CIA days kidnap his daughter and ex-wife so he can be heroic and win them back into his life?' and the answer is, well maybe, but you can't know, so just believe me when I say I'll do anything to get you back. I'll probably have to torture a few people by strapping electrodes to their genitals. Stop looking at me that way. This really isn't any weirder than that 50 Shades of Grey book you've been reading, is it? No. So look, you've got about five seconds before they come for you. I'm going to act unusually calm right now. Man this coffee is good. OK see you in a few days, hopefully."
