There's a big difference between Turks and Gulf Arabs, dude. The villains in the first film were Gulf Arabs. Probably Saudi.

It should have been called 'Tooken'.

You know what, that actually makes sense. I'm gonna go ahead and consider Taken>The Unknown>The Grey as chronological prequels to Ra's Al Ghul in BB.

I really don't see how the official synopsis for the 1st one would seem something better than this one's to people. They sound equally simplistic cliche crap, with Liam Neeson kicking all kinds of ass in them. Which is the only thing that matters, really.

Am I the only one who thinks Liam's American accent sounds weird. Like a surpressed Irish accent, just waiting to let loose.

It has the same problem Hangover 2: no plot variation. Same formula.

It was ok. So Liam doesn't get kidnapped? I thought the synopsis was both he and his wife get kidnapped and the daughter had to save them.

Definitely needed a better "I will find you, and I will kill you" speech like the first movie's trailer.

Before Liam Neeson finishes off the old Albanian guy he'll say:

They certainly wanted to recreate that "you'll be taken" speech. But the way they went about it was between between subtle and obvious that it just felt like a parody. Started laughing when he started to say it.

That was awesome! I thought unknown was garbage, the grey was excellent but this film...just when you thought it wasn't even possible for Beeson to get anymore badass he does. When does this cone out?

Taken 2, Bourne Legacy and Skyfall all in the dame year

James Bond bangs salt and all the other protagonists' wives, ex-wives and girlfriends all within the first 7 minutes of the film.

I would actually been interested in that. Quite a different approach to the genre but the payroll would be off the charts and sadly due to various rights studios would never let it happen.
