Action, Drama, Thriller
In this second sequel to Taken (2008), Liam Neeson's ex-CIA operative tries to evade the LAPD while hunting down a man who's framed him for murder. Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, who wrote the first two movies, lift most of this one from The Fugitive (1993), right down to the relationship between Neeson and the maverick lawman on his tail. Playing the latter character, Forest Whitaker turns in one of his sleepiest performances; no one else seems to be trying very hard either, yet director Olivier Megaton delivers some good chases, fist fights, and shots of Neeson looking glum.
