Liam Neeson slums it again as the tightly wound Bryan, a former CIA operative who ends up in another bone-crunching pickle.

Rade Sherbedgia's unhinged Albanian hoodlum is vengeful (“Your death will not be quick, it will not be pleasant”), as Bryan managed to murder his son in the first, deliriously successful Taken. So his humourless crew kidnap him along with his ill-characterised wife (Famke Janssen). Neeson sleepwalks through this slick slice of codswallop.
