taken 2I watched the original Taken, starring Liam Neeson and it was intense!  Full of action, suspense and just a great movie.  So when I heard that Taken 2 was coming out to Blu-ray and DVD, I was excited to watch it!  I remember loving Liam Neeson (or former CIA operative Bryan Mills) as he went and took out the men who hurt his daughter.  Well, in Taken 2, Liam Neeson is back!  Taken 2 is available on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

He hunted them, he found them, he killed them; and now they have come back to settle the score.  The sequel to the 2008 box office smash Taken, this action-packed follow-up has brought $135 million theatrically in the U.S. alone.  Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated actor, Liam Neeson (Clash of the TitansTakenBatman Begins) returns as Mills, the retired CIA agent who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from kidnappers.  When the father of one of the villains Bryan killed swears revenge, and takes him and his wife hostage in Istanbul, Bryan must enlist the help of Kim to escape.  Bryan then employs his unique tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers, one by one.

Produced by Luc Besson (The ProfessionalTaken) and directed by Olivier Megaton (ColombianaTransporter 3), Taken 2, features gritty supporting performances from Famke Janssen (X-Men Franchise, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), Maggie Grace (“Lost,” The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2) and Rade Sherbedgia (X-Men: First ClassHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1).  The Blu-ray features a new Unrated Cut and is loaded with special features including a Black Ops Field Manual and Kill Counter, Deleted and Extended Scenes, an Alternate Ending over 20 minutes long, Tools of the Trade interactive feature, and an FX behind-the-scenes piece.  The Combo Pack also comes with a DVD/Digital Copy disc and Ultraviolet.

Taken 2 is also available on DVD featuring the Theatrical version of the movie, Alternate Ending and FX piece.
