Taken 2 trailer rampages online: watch now

“Dad’s the best, huh?”

Taken 2 has released a new trailer online, and it’s rammed with as much action and just as many gruff one-liners as you’d expect.

Directed by the suitably-named Olivier Megaton, the sequel sees Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) and his wife kidnapped by the father of a man Mills killed in the first Taken.

“Listen to me carefully Kim,” Mills whispers at one point. “Your mother is going to be taken. People are going to come for you too…”

We just got chills. Check out the trailer below…

“We wanted to surprise you,” laughs Maggie Grace. “Well, you succeeded,” replies Neeson in an exchange that could easily be read as a sly nod to the first film’s completely unexpected success.

In this first US trailer, Taken 2 looks every bit as punchy as its predecessor, while Istanbul offers a bustling backdrop for all the action.

With Skyfall also out this year, we’ll have to wait and see if there’s room for both Bond and Bryan Mills in the hearts of action lovers…

Taken 2 opens in cinemas on 4 October 2012.

      "Take one of the guns. And two of the grenades" How come my dad never gave me advice like this?

      I only saw the first one the other night.. totally ridiculous.. within 25 minutes we'd met all the characters, had the kidnap, had an action scene, someone got killed, and then Neeson is already onto the next guy. I genuinely don't understand how this happened but.. I really enjoyed it, second one looks like more of the same so I'm in.

      I think this one will work pretty well because the first one wasn't particularly good, it was just really enjoyable so this one can't really be a let down. It'll just be more of the same, which I imagine, is what people want.

      At no point do any of the bad guys say "well, boss, we did try to kidnap his daughter and sell her into a life of drug-addled prostitution. Let's just chill."

      "If I kill you, your sons will seek revenge for your death?" "Yes, they will come." "Then I will kill them, too". I guess we know what the plot for Taken 3 is going to be about. ;)

      It's nice that Liam is having so much success this late in his career.
