LRA writes: The 2008 surprise hit "Taken" started a movement upon its release. That movement involved hailing Liam Neeson as the newest badass action star on the block. Since its release, movie studios and filmmakers alike have tried to recapture the essence of what made that film (and more specifically Liam Neeson) click with audiences that had them clamoring for more. Soon we were bombarded with movie after movie that were from "The director of Taken", "The producers of Taken" and some even stole the actual poster art. Alas, not even having Liam Neeson in the actual films were enough to dupe audiences into these second rate knock offs (well, "The Grey" actually ended up being pretty good).
