You might think that Liam Neeson would LoJack the shit out of his family after the events of the first Taken, but no such luck: When Taken 2 begins, he's on vacation with his wife and daughter in relaxing, uh, Istanbul, and it isn't long before the taking commences. This time, spouse Famke Janssen is the one who's kidnapped, and it's up to Neeson to issue threats to her captors while daughter Maggie Grace takes on the hard work of tiptoeing around the high outer ledge of a building while dressed in jean shorts and a bikini top. (What, you thought Neeson would be the one tasked with that? Now there's a sequel!)
