Liam Neeson also thought Taken was a ‘One Off’
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
When I first heard news that there would be a sequel to Taken I almost immediately smacked myself on the forehead in disbelief. I subsequently heard the echo of several more foreheads getting slapped when the news spread further and further across the internetz. How does one make a sequel to that? Does his daughter get kidnapped again? The movie was a simple standalone story that didn’t seem to leave anything open for a sequel and apparently Liam Neeson felt the same way…
He almost sounds like he believes this is a plausible and believable plot and will work. It’s hard to tell. I still think the idea seems a little far-fetched but if the writing is up to snuff then just about any premise can make for an entertaining film. My only problem with the film is that I am not a Maggie Grace fan. At all. I cheered when Michelle Rodriguez’s character shot her in lost.
I loved Taken and right now I’m apprehensively optimistic about the film and we’ll see where things go from here.
