Will you be taken in by this new trailer for Taken 2?

Jul. 30, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Taken 2 big banner

I've seen TAKEN a few more times than I might care to admit. Like seven times more. So when TAKEN 2 hits on October 5th, you can bet every single one of your brass buttons that I'll be first in line to watch Liam Neeson journey to a foreign land and save his family all while raining down vengeance on their captors through the use of his very special set of skills. 

Or, at least, that's what I thought until I saw this trailer.

Now I know.  It may be that I'm just a sucker for slow vocals set against scenes of heightened emotion and brutal violence, but I'm definitely going to be there opening day now. 

You can check out the new trailer below, and strike back below that to let us know what you think.

Extra Tidbit: Is anyone else getting the vibe that the co-writer Luc Besson and director Olivier Megaton are trying to turn Maggie Grace's character into a bit of a badass? Maybe in advance of a planned TAKEN 3 where the tables are turned and she has to save Liam Neeson?

I understand how this can be a movie made to get more money, but it is so much more than just a cash hungry movie. There are so many action films out there that I dislike. No real story, or emotion. No well played out character development. Taken, however was one action flick I really enjoyed. So knowing that there is a sequel, to me its just a "Hey, sorry their are a lot of shitty action films out there. Take this, since the first one was so good."

If there they are turning Maggie's character into a badass for Taken 3 then it means Liam's character will be killed off. The man can shackled from head to toe and tossed in a bomb-proof vault located serveral metres underground and he'd STILL escape and kill the sh*t out of the badguys.

HE DOESN'T NEED HELP!

It looks a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I'm pumped now. And so far it looks like Maggie Grace's character doesn't act like she's 12 in this.

Looking good, but fingers crossed that this one isn't neutered for the theater like the first.

Well in my theater, a lot of people started laughing at this trailer (myself included). It just seems so stupidly unnecessary. As entertaining as the first one was, this is clearly just a cash-in for everyone involved, and they couldn't even get a competant director or spruce up the awful cast (Maggie Grace is one of the worst 3-4 actresses alive). Here's hoping Maggie Grace's character has to pretend to be some sort of badass, because then it'll at least venture into 'so bad its awesome'

And while I'm getting minuses, all I'm saying is, as great as he is, Liam Neeson doesn't need to be in every single fucking movie.

Had to be said.
