My Penny of View : After the incident in Paris, relatives of the kidnappers that killed by Bryan, tracked Bryan and family down for revenge. They followed Bryan and family to Istanbul with intention to take them back to their home country to kill them in front of their died sons and relatives. Bryan and Lenore went to market and meanwhile Kim stayed back in hotel to create chances for both divorced parents. During the journey, Bryan felt a suspicious car was following them. He told Lenore quietly to escape and he will be the one to divert their attention. Unfortunately Lenore was captured and forcing Bryan to listen to the kidnappers' instructions. Before he surrendered, he called Kim to tell her how to protect herself from taken. Here we go again the dangerous adventure of being taken of Bryan and family. How are they manage to escape from the bad guys?

This movie is sequel of 2008 Taken. That movie consider a turning point in Liam Neeson's career to become a successful actor. It was one of the best heart thrilling action movies. However, too much of expectations will follow by disappointments. Four years later, I can see that actions Liam Neeson become slower and not so exciting like the previous movie. Story line pretty interesting and you really amaze with the calculation of Bryan about their location. You don't have time to digest whether is it workable in real life. Anyway, it's one of the movies you can consider to spend money in cinema during weekend. Amazing! Istanbul has so many empty places to throw the grenades.

Rating : ★★★☆☆
