After the epic success of the first Taken movie and the horrendous failure of its sequels, Director Pierre Morel knew that he was up to a much bigger challenge.
Hollywood’s most senior and highest paid script writers pitched in to compose the most complex plot for Liam Neeson’s next sequel: TAKEN 4!
Leaks from inside the studios spoke of an unescapable scenario where Liam Neeson (Bryan Mills) finds himself, his daughter, his old aunt, his bitchy mother in law, his imaginary friend, his facebook crush and his cute squirrel kidnapped, tied to a pole, rigged with explosives, trapped in a dungeon, locked by a key that was burried in an unknown ocean’s darkest and deepest crevice.
One can already feel the suspense.
But with all the characters of the movie, including the director himself, being locked down, who’s the new hero that will save the day?
This hero is a “she”, and you can hear her in one of the scenes saying to the kidnappers through the phone in a very recognizable Lebanese accent:
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money.
But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.”
That female Lebanese voice sounds just so familiar.
Yes. It’s non other than the same hero that saved the Lebanese hostages in Aazaz.
It’s El Hajja Hayat.
The People’s hero, the woman we all love and respect for her efforts in putting pressure for bringing back the Lebanese hostages in Aazaz.
Directors would have relied on the Lebanese Government but you know, they do want a happy end.
