Critic Review - jackiekcooper.com

Ethan Hawke creates a believable character who wants to write a best seller, but that is the only thing in this movie that rings true or logical.

It's not suppose to be real or logical its paranormal, It's not logical that Michael Myers in Halloween isn't logical because he didn't die from being shot like 6 times.

It amazes me that the critics of this movie all agree that it was scary. Duh!!! It's a scary movie!!! It's isn't meant to be an Academy Award winner. It isn't meant to make 100% total sense and be based on scientific fact. It's a supernatural scary movie!! Period. It isn't dumb horror, like Friday the 13th, Halloween, etc. It is good, scary fun and it shouldn't be judged by being anything more than that.

Ironically, this critic gives Taken 2 a 6!!! That movie was about as believable as the tooth fairy. But was it good? Yes because it was what it was...a good popcorn action movie and Liam Neeson is awesome. This movie deserves no less than the 6 that Taken 2 got because it is every bit as good at what it's purpose was, which is scare you to death.

This movie wasn't scary. The first half, with the videos Ethan Hawke's character watched in the attic, was good. From then on, the movie went downhill to sucksville.

I agree with you, Jackie. The protagonist father was the only interesting or compelling part of the entire film. This is Hollywood cash grab horror shit at its worst.
