Taken 2 trailer.

A reader emailed me insisting – insisting – that I had to see this trailer.

He was, in point of fact, correct: I did.  Looks like it has a nice, organic progression from the original.  Not always easy to do in a sequel.

PS: At some point, you’d think that it’d percolate through: Don’t F*ck With The Ronin.  The Japanese know it; we know it (which is why we keep making samurai flicks out of westerns, and vice versa).  Hell, the Italians made enough Westerns for us that they probably know it as well.  You’d think that this would be more obvious…

    Aahhh, co-written by Luc Besson. I enjoy almost two thirds of the movies I’ve seen where he’s been involved.

    Alternate title:
    Bryan Mills Kills the Rest of the Albanian Underworld

    You’re welcome! What kills me is that a Frenchman now does American action movies BETTER than Americans.

    Speaking of ronin, if you haven’t seen the movie Ronin you need to. DeNiro, Reno, Stellen Skarsgard at his creepiest, and a pre-famous Sean Bean.

    “Who taught you”?

    “I don’t remember. That’s the FIRST thing they teach you.”

    I dunno. I recall the plot of “Ronin” being incomprehensible to the point of nigh-irrelevance. It DID feature Deniro popping up out of a sunroof and blowing the snot out of another car with a bazooka, though.

  • DaveP. says:

    I watch it for the actors, not the plot, though I will agree the car-chase scenes are beyond a bit much.
