Bad guys are bad guys for a reason: they have no morals, no normal code of conduct and when one of them dies doing bad things, they must get revenge. This revenge is the central premise to Taken 2. A bunch of sick baddies die at the hands of Liam Neeson‘s Brian Mills in the first film, baddies who kidnapped his daughter to sell into white slavery, so the families decide Mills and his family must pay. Only a bad guy thinks this way I tell you!
Taken 2 starts off with a slight recap of the events in Taken, mostly the kidnappers’ demise. A solemn figure promises revenge, swearing blood. We cut to Mills and his newest daughter, Kim – played by Maggie Grace, related frustration – driving tests and a boy. The new wrinkle in his life appears when his ex-wife (Famke Janssen) reveals she is separated from her rich as hell husband. Clearly the feelings are still there, something which is going to complicate his life considerably.
Thanks to a last-minute cancellation by the step-dad, Kim and her mom are left without a hang out for spring break. Mills invites them to spend time with him after he completes a job in Istanbul. Guess what’s going to happen there? If you guessed someone gets Taken, you win! To avoid spoilers, I’m stopping here in the story but if you’re a fan of the first, you need to watch Taken 2.
Is Ra’s Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises?

The current rumor going around the block is that Ra’s Al Ghul will return for The Dark Knight Rises. Now before you get to excited you should know two things. First and foremost if it is true it will not be the all powerful Liam Neeson playing him and the role itself will be flash backs if at all. Second as is with all TDKR news it’s best to take it with a grain of salt. The Nolan’s like to keep things very close to their chest and have even been known to leak false information through sources just to throw people off.
So the question is if it’s not Liam playing this younger flash back Ra’s who will it be? Answer is Josh Pence. Now I hear the crickets going off at the mere mention of that name so I may need to clarify just a bit. Pence had a smallish appearance in The Social Network and will be in the upcoming Battleship movie. Not exactly the best resume, but if Nolan is impressive at anything it’s casting so lets wait and see shall we. Read more: Is Ra’s Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises?
