October 5, 2012 (San Diego) -- Another week, another Liam Nelson film. Taken 2 is his fourth this year alone. First came The Grey, a gritty action survival film set in Alaska that packed a psychological punch. The second was the wretched Wrath of the Titans, which right now is my pick for the worst film of the year. Following that was Battleship, a stupid and turgid alien invasion flick that cribbed the worst elements of Michael Bay’s films. Taken 2 does nothing to better Neeson's batting average this year, but at least it's somewhat more tolerable than Wrath and Battleship. But that isn't saying much.
