I was satisfied when I left the theater after seeing Taken. I had no want or need to see the expansion of this universe, it's characters were left in a comfortable place. I guess success can sometimes change things. The movie did so well that the studio wanted to launch a sequel to the surprise hit.
I'm a more of a "leave well enough alone", kind of guy, but upon viewing the trailer there looks to be plenty of badassery left in Liam Neeson's arsenal even if his daughter is tagging along this time.
Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim (Grace) from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.
