Taken 2: A Movie Review

Being sick or lazy or land locked due to snow storms means catching up on movies that I have missed out on over the past 6 months. I do many things with Adelaide outside the house; but attending movies just doesn't seem a fitting activity yet. Enter NetFlix on the whole television and I'm back in business.

Taken 2 is just as bad a$$ as Taken. Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) offers to whisk his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) and ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) to Istanbul for Spring Break. The two surprise him by showing up at his luxurious hotel. While Kim attempts to reunite her parents by studying poolside as they venture on a romantic lunch, the family of the former kidnappers (from Taken) work to avenge their son's death. Kidnapping Bryan & Lenore and sending Kim on the hunt to save her parents.

Will she be able to save her father like he saved her? Or will one of her parents surrender to the torture games? A mind-twisting, gut-wrenching thriller from the moment of action, Taken 2 is every bit worth seeing. Especially if you can snuggle up safely on your couch!
