Can I just say first and foremost that I am such a fan of Taken the movie since it began. 🙂 I have watched it from the start until now the excitement in me never seems to wane whenever I hear that another sequel to this much loved, adrenalin filled and much talked about movie will come to hit our cinemas since it’s sure to be a hit!
We almost didn’t get a chance to watch it during its premiere night last January 14, 2014 just a day before the much awaited and highly anticipated Papal Visit to our country wherein hordes of people would surely line up and march along the streets of Manila just to have a glimpse of Christ’s Vicar here on earth.
As I was watching the Pope from our television as he deplaned from the Sri Lankan aircraft I began to feel goosebumps all over! You see he has that effect on the people, that renewed hope amongst us that despite the poverty and all the tribulations we are afflicted with on a daily basis. God still loves us and will cross borders and the widespread oceans just to see us and make us feel we are loved through his messenger the “Pope”.
Okay my emotions are getting the best of me again, going back to the topic here’s a quick trailer of the movie for you to watch and get adrift on what I’m blabbing about.
So for starters here’s how the plot unfolds. Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose long awaited reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered inside his residence. Framed for the crime he obviously did not execute he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the NYPD. For the last time, Mills employes the use of his “particular set of skills,” along with some of his cohorts to track down the real killers, exact justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now- Kim.
This action packed, adrenalin fueled movie kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole course of the movie. This movie was twisted in a brilliant kind of way as you wouldn’t have thought that it would play out that way from what you expected it to be. The uncanny plot twists and all the combat moves our protagonist executed definitely kept my attention on the screen during the course of the movie.
However, I was quite disappointed during the end as justice wasn’t really served due to the ending. I wouldn’t be a spoiler and reveal all the nitty gritty details of how everything played out but it was definitely a good watch for me and P :).
