Liam Neeson will kill you when 'Taken 2' hits Blu-ray and DVD

The man with a particular set of skills is back, when Taken 2 hits Blu-ray combo pack and DVD on January 15th from 20th Century Fox. The first Taken was more fun than it had any right to be, in fact I thought it was damned good fun and am looking forward to catching the sequel. It will come with the Unrated version, as well as the previously seen Theatrical cut, and a good amount of extras.

LOS ANGELES, CA. (November 30th, 2012) – He hunted them, he found them, he killed them; now they have come back to settle the score. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents the return of former CIA operative Bryan Mills and his “particular set of skills” when TAKEN 2 arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD January 15. The sequel to the 2008 box office smash Taken, this action-packed follow-up has brought in $135 million theatrically in the U.S. alone.

Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated actor, Liam Neeson (Clash of the Titans, Taken, Batman Begins) returns as Mills, the retired CIA agent who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from kidnappers. When the father of one of the villains Bryan killed swears revenge, and takes him and his wife hostage in Istanbul, Bryan must enlist the help of Kim to escape. Bryan then employs his unique tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers, one by one.

Produced by Luc Besson (The ProfessionalTaken) and directed by Olivier Megaton (Colombiana,Transporter 3), TAKEN 2, features gritty supporting performances from Famke Janssen (X-MenFranchise, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), Maggie Grace (“Lost,” The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2) and Rade Sherbedgia (X-Men: First ClassHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1). The Blu-ray features a new Unrated Cut and is loaded with special features including a Black Ops Field Manual and Kill Counter, Deleted and Extended Scenes, an Alternate Ending over 20 minutes long, Tools of the Trade interactive feature, and an FX behind-the-scenes piece. The Combo Pack also comes with a DVD/Digital Copy disc and Ultraviolet. Prebook is December 19.

Most disappointing movie of the year. I adore the first part but this one was just crap.
