    So THAT’S how Oskar Schindler made all his money!

    After watching the second one, I had already figured out the third installment, the WHOLE TOWN comes after him for revenge. Oh well, scratch one little town of gangsters. (I’ll still see it, though. I like Luc Besson’s quirky actioners)

    I can’t imagine a plausible script that would make him go for a 3rd Taken movie. I can’t imagine myself actually seeing a 3rd one either.

  4. As someone who has written about her spouses man crush on Liam, I say pay him the $20 million. The excitement over Taken 2 gave me the best writing material ever.

    As someone who liked Taken but couldn’t wait for Taken 2 to end, I say no more. Please.
