There is always an audience for actors in late middle-age who know how to kick serious ass. Charles Bronson was 53 when he made Death Wish, Liam Neeson was 54 when he did Taken and Clint Eastwood was 73 when he did Gran Torino.

Taken 2 is a good sequel for those who were fans of the original, but it is not great.

You hear the words echo in your head: "You're going to be taken ... to see Taken 2." Now listen carefully, because you don't have much time.

Liam Neeson vs. Liam Neeson: Who Would Win?

Tyler Moss | Posted 12.01.2012 | Comedy
Tyler Moss

Even at 60 years old, Neeson still manages to have cross-generational appeal, and makes a far more believable action hero than puerile pretty boys like Shia LeBeouf or Liam Hemsworth, whose acting is an amalgamation of upper lip peach fuzz and dour glowers.

Taken 2: Neeson Is "Taken" Again (but Not Martin Harris)

Jon Chattman | Posted 09.30.2012 | Entertainment
Jon Chattman

Ever since he co-starred with Sean Connery in The Rock, the actor has focused more on bombastic action flicks than the gems that made him the star he is today. Don't look now, but Liam Neeson has become the second coming of Cage.

To me, she's a perfect victim, but I question who wants to watch her story? It is so grim few could stomach it. She is the ravaged face and body of the commercial sex industry in this country.

What's striking, when watching Lockout (aside from what a terrible, lunk-headed movie it is), is how frequently and explicitly it flaunts its anti-Democrat -- and anti-Obama -- point of view.

There must be a factory that churns out action-thrillers the same way a factory produces furniture. No muss, no fuss, and a rotating list of actors who have fallen out of the 'A' list.

Let your agents go all Jack Bauer and they might kill a few terrorists. But there's going to be excesses, collateral damage, disastrous mistakes. In the movies or TV, such inconvenient fallout is airbrushed out. Not in real life.
