Liam Neeson: A Career In Four Minutes

The Taken 2 star on Schindler, Batman and more!

Taken 2 is in cinemas now, and sees Liam Neeson return to ass-kicking form when he and his wife are kidnapped in the middle of a trip to Istanbul.

The original revenge flick helped Neeson muscle his way into action man territory as part of an unexpected but welcome career reinvention.

Neeson hasn’t always been about rescuing family members and dispensing vicious beatings to foreign villains, though.

With a film career that spans more that 30 years, he has a truly legendary CV, and he was good enough to rattle through his career highlights (a Herculean task considering he has 80+ credits to his name) for our video special below.

From researching Schindler's List, to battling Batman, via the make-up hell of cult hit Darkman, it's all in there.

So sit back, and join us for a whistlestop tour of Neeson’s greatest hits, straight from the man himself.


Taken 2 is out now.

      You don't have to have seen Taken to enjoy Taken 2. No Michael Collins in there.

      There is an old Hollywood legend that if you put Neeson and James Woods in the same room the room would go dark. (Take that, Movie 43)

      He looks kind of bored in this, worn out from promoting a pointless movie. Even so, its a good retrospective, wish it was longer than 4 minutes! (Thats what she said etc...) :D
