If you're looking for a ransom, I can tell you, I don't have money. Does revenge get any sweeter than this? About The Author Loves horror films especially those from directors such as John Carpenter and Dario Argento. So how and why did this movie feel so flat to me? Picks out the guy in the video, only needs one try to find him, goes to one whorehouse and finds his daughters coat. Neeson pretty much carries the film.

What holds it all together is Neeson; his gravitas and emotional availability make his character--the usual action fantasy of impossible competence and righteous fury--somehow seem real and relatable. But how does the audio match up? What does that say about my taste in movies? By Tom P 8 5 Not bad Taken 2 video The plot feels awkward and uneven at the beginning as the stage is set contrived for Brian Mills to reunite with his ex-wife, so that they and their daughter end up together in Istambul on vacation.
