Rated PG-13 · 92 minutes · 2012
While this Taken is less focused than the first, it makes up for it with a winking awareness of both its silliness and its straight-up xenophobia. It also features Liam Neeson killing even more bad guys, and an oddly elaborate homage to Drive, and Liam Neeson teaching his daughter how to be a badass instead of a damsel in distress. Liam Neeson is even angrier and cooler now than he was in Taken, and he's still smarter than James Bond (has 007 ever used grenades... as an echolocation device?) and tougher than all the Expendables combined (even when threatened with lethal torture, Liam Neeson totally keeps his cool). True, Liam Neeson can't compete with Jason Bourne's youthful vigor—but if the Taken saga proves anything, it's that vengeance is a dish best served old. Zing!
