All this for a driver's license? Retired CIA operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is still trying to remain an active part of the lives of his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) and his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace). After all, he spent the first film slaughtering every sex trafficker in Paris after Kim was kidnapped and sold into the slave trade. But now Kim's about to take her driver's exam for a third time, and Bryan will settle at nothing to help her earn a passing grade. That includes forcing her to maneuver a stolen taxi through the streets of Istanbul while he guns down the pursuing goons of Murad (Rade Sherbedgia), the vengeful Albanian. Murad's son was killed during the Parisian rampage, and for payback he's taken Lenore, prompting Bryan and Kim's violent and instructive bonding experience. Olivier Megaton, though, could use some more lessons in directing as he bombs in his strained efforts to recreate Pierre Morel's original.
