In just this year alone, Liam Neeson will have appeared in Wrath of the Titans, Battleship, The Grey, The Dark Knight Rises and Taken 2, all of them action-loaded crowd pleasers. I can remember when his casting in Darkman seemed like a weird, unrepeatable anomaly.
But this trailer for Taken 2 shows that he’s certainly got the specific set of skills to play this game. He even does menacing countdowns in a way that makes me want to eat popcorn.
Viva La Eurocorp.
