Added DiffLines:

*A stalker/crazed fan attacks the pop star that Bryan is doing a security job for. Of course, the guy seemed to forget that he was facing off against Liam Neeson. Bryan takes the guy down with no injuries to him or his charge in less than five seconds.


*** "I believe you... But that's not gonna save you." And Mills walks away with the power switch on, frying the sex-slaver to death.

Added DiffLines:

** Further to that, Bryan verbalising his observations (from the sensation of the van banking around corners, ambient sounds from outside etc) about how he and Lenore are being transported around the city whilst ''blindfolded''. Then flawlessly retracing that journey to track down the end location and in so doing, finding his wife. "A very particular set of skills", indeed.


** The criminal says only one thing before he hangs up on Mills: "[[SarcasmMode Good luck]]." Turns out this was the exact clue Mills needed to identify the man. And when he does, by tricking him into saying it ''again''... "You don't remember me. We spoke on the phone two days ago. ''I told you I would find you''."

Added DiffLines:

*** One other side note on this speech is an extremely subtle tone shift as he's speaking. When he says " I ''will'' find you", his tone is one not of warning, but of absolute certainty.

** Right before he reveals his identity to the kidnapper, you can ''see'' the moment he switches from the semi-jovial cover identity to cold-blooded PapWolf. He glances around the room and double-checks where everyone is, before utterly demolishing an entire building full of mooks.

to:

* Bryan coldly and wordlessly killing Murad. He shows the bastard what happens when you break a promise seconds after agreeing to one.


* [[PremortemOneLiner "It was all personal to me."]]

to:

* [[PremortemOneLiner [[PreMortemOneLiner "It was all personal to me."]]



to:

* TheDragon puts up a very creditable fight lasting much longer than anyone else. Bryan has to struggle to win and doesn't come out unscathed and is visibly exhausted after he finally wins.
