- "Good luck..."
- ―Marko's famous line to Bryan Mills
Marko Hoxha is one of the main antagonists in the 2008 film Taken.
He was played by the actor Arben Bajraktaraj.
Marko is a member of an Albanian human trafficking ring that abducts women and he is the one who kidnaps Bryan Mills' daughter, Kim. He is also the son of Murad, the head of the Albanian mafia, alpha sex trafficker, and the main antagonist in the 2008 film Taken .
Marko is first seen at a party Kim is attending and he is one of the intruders who kidnap her and her friend Amanda. After realizing she has been taken, Bryan gets in touch with Marko and tells him that when he finds him, he will kill him to which Marko simply replies "good luck" and hangs up.
Bryan is let inside the Albanian's house by feigning to be a corrupt policeman, sent to renew its extortion "contract" with the brothel. He tricks the thugs inside into saying a few words and phrases, and recognizes a voice: Marko, the kidnapper he spoke to on the phone. He wounds Marko and kills the rest. Searching the house, he finds several captive teens, including Amanda, who is dead from an apparent overdose. In the basement of the house, Bryan straps Marko into a makeshift electric chair and tortures him with an electric current until he talks. Kim, being a virgin, is very valuable on the black market and was sold to an auctioneer named Patrice Saint-Clair. After retrieving this vital information, Bryan prepares to leave and Marko desperately attempts to say that he has no idea where Kim is. He then cries out 'please' repeatedly, and Bryan claims that he believes him, but it won't save him. Bryan then leaves and flips the light switch on, letting the current continue to flow, leaving the screaming Marko to die a very painful death by means of electrocution. It was mentioned in Taken 2 by Murad that Marko was strapped to the chair so long, his heart burst.
