Taken 2 is a 2012 sequel to 2008's Taken. Liam Neeson returns as former CIA operative Bryan Mills, who is captured along with his ex-wife by the father of one of the kidnappers killed by Bryan in the first film. The film was directed by Olivier Megaton (Colombiana) from a screenplay by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. The film would be followed by 2015's Taken 3.


The following weapons were used in the film Taken 2:


Handguns

Beretta 92FS

Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) once again carries a Beretta 92FS as his main sidearm for the majority of the film. Many of Murad's goons also are seen with 92FS pistols. Bryan is also seen using a Beretta in a quick flashback to the first film.

Glock 17

When his Beretta runs dry, Bryan Mills prominently uses a third generation Glock 17 when he goes to rescue his ex-wife Lenore. Aside from the Beretta, the Glock is one of two other handguns in his suitcase, which he used for his security job in Istanbul. This film gives us a glimpse at what kind of weapons Bryan trusts and uses personally, which is a stark contrast to the first film, where Bryan only really carried a Beretta or whatever he captured from combatants. The Glock 17 was also seen in the first film, but was never fired and was likely just a rubber prop. Note that this is a real firing gun, albeit adapted to fire blanks.

Steyr M9A1

In addition to the Beretta and the Glock, Bryan keeps a Steyr M9A1 pistol in his weapons suitcase. He prominently uses it after his Glock runs dry near the end of the film to go after Murad Hoxha (Rade Serbedzija). Murad is also seen holding Bryan's M9A1 for a brief time. Bryan's Steyr appears to be a second generation model, judging by the pattern on the grips. Bryan would later use this same pistol in Taken 3.

Bryan's Steyr can be viewed in the top left hand corner of the suitcase. Note the lack of the Steyr insignia on the grip, which suggests this is a second generation model.

Beretta 90Two

Bryan Mills carries a Beretta 90Two as his main sidearm when he is doing security work. He carries it in a leather crossdraw holster. Bryan puts it in his weapons suitcase early on in the film, and later Kim Mills (Maggie Grace) retrieves it and gives it to Bryan, which he uses it to escape from Murad.

SIG-Sauer SP 2022

Jean-Claude Pitrel (Olivier Rabourdin) is seen with a SIG-Sauer SP 2022 pistol. This is quite accurate, as Jean-Claude works for French federal law enforcement. In real life, French law enforcement and internal security agencies (including the National Gendarmerie, National Police and French Customs), purchased over 250,000 SP2022s, which was the largest single order for service handguns since World War II.

Beretta 92FS Inox

One of the thugs is seen with a Beretta 92FS Inox in the intro scene. This Beretta is likely American-made, because it has blued controls.
