You don’t want to mess with Liam Neeson.
The tall, hulking Irish actor introduces a new Internet-only trailer for Taken 2, the sequel to his 2008 thriller Taken.
“Check out this exclusive look at Taken 2, exclusively on YouTube,” intones Neeson, starring out and pointing at the viewer, “Or I will come for you, and I will find you.”
The trailer follows Neeson’s Bryan Mills having a happy reunion with his daughter Kim, played by Maggie Grace, and ex-wife Lenore, played by Famke Janssen, in Istanbul. Soon after, husband and wife are, yes, taken, with a black bag cinched around Neeson’s head and neck. There’s a flurry of action after, including Grace driving a car with Neeson, speeding over train tracks and almost getting decimated into nothingness by an oncoming train.
“I have a particular set of skills, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you,” says Neeson, his deep voice booming in an overhead narration, at one point. Indeed, indeed he does.
