The Best Stuff
1. Taken 2 Clip: The chase scene is exciting, but it’s this clip of Kim following in her father’s footsteps that proves Taken 2 could really have quite a bit to offer by building off of its predecessor. Bryan Mills is clearly still on his game and his not-so-helpless-anymore daughter is willing to do whatever it takes to return the favor and bring him home.
