    Lol, the critics really hated Taken 2. But I honestly have no idea why. It exciting and fun. The first one was better, but Liam Neeson makes every movie be cool.

  • yep

    Happy for Liam! I hope to see the movie soon!

    Liam Neeson is a guy to root for. He’s a great actor and an even better person. I hope he keeps kicking butt at the box office!
