Blu-rays for the weekend: The best of Liam Neeson

Taken 2, the sequel to 2008’s sleeper hit, is released on the big screen this week, marking the return of Liam Neeson in the role which redefined him as an adrenaline-fuelled hard man.

To get you in the mood for Taken 2, why not settle down with these great Liam Neeson films this weekend?


Taking you back to where it all started, there’s no better way to get in the mood for Taken 2 than watching the original. Taken follows the story of retired CIA agent Brian Mills (Neeson), who is drawn out of retirement and into a deadly conflict when his daughter Kim gets kidnapped by Albanian gangsters.

This high-definition, extended Blu-ray edition will leave you utterly breathless as Neeson tears round Paris to save his daughter.

The Grey

The Grey sees Liam Neeson taking charge of a group of oil-rig workers after their plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness. Facing mortal injuries and the harsh environment, Neeson and his crew are running out of time to escape the elements and the pack of hungry wolves on their trail.  Driven by their survival instincts, this wilderness adventure will have you gripped until the last minute.

Famed for a scene in which Neeson uses his combat skills to take on a pack of wolves, this high-definition Blu-ray is a great addition to any Neeson fan’s collection.

Batman Begins

The first in Christopher Nolan’s highly rated Dark Knight trilogy explores the background and origin of Gotham’s Caped Crusader. After disappearing into the criminal underworld, Bruce Wayne is rescued from a Chinese prison by Liam Neeson’s character, who eventually inspires the billionaire orphan to take up the mantle of Batman. We won’t elaborate any further for fear of spoilers!

If you’ve somehow missed this fantastic interpretation of one of the comic world’s most iconic characters, this Blu-ray is the perfect way to catch up
