Angered over his son’s death, a father kidnaps Bryan Mills and his ex-wife and daughter in hopes of getting revenge.
Well done action is not hard to do, but many movies still fail at doing it. This movie succeeds in making exciting action sequences. Liam Neeson is still great as Bryan Mills. It’s not his best character, but you can’t argue with his rugged masculinity. The supporting cast is OK.
Sad to say, the writing is terrible. The dialogue between some characters is really bad, laughably so. No, I was literally laughing at some points. A sequel to the original was not necessary, but a sequel to this would be terrible. I feel a lot of people a really bashing this movie for some of the wrong reasons. This movie does what it wants to achieve and nothing more. I wasn’t blown away, but I’m not regretting the roughly $10 ticket.
3 out of 5
Fun Fact: They’re considering a sequel. Now that’s not fun, that’s just depressing.
