Liam Neeson does it again! If it wasn’t enough that the first installment of Taken did incredibly well, now Taken 2 has brought the enterprise to a whole other level.
Personally, I believe Taken was an amazing movie and obviously other people felt the same way. Not only did it touch upon adventure and suspense, but the humanistic aspect of a father stopping at nothing to protect his daughter.
In the sequel, now it is the ex-wife and daughter that get taken as part of a revenge scheme. The men who were killed by Neeson’s character Bryan Mills in the first movie, had family and friends that want to avenge their deaths.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Neeson’s movie grossed $50 million in the US and $55 million overseas. This is a $25 million plus bonus since the first movie came out. Last week’s No. 1 movie was Hotel Transylvania, but that came in at No. 2 this weekend with $27 million.
