If you make a PG-13 sequel to your R Rated movie
You're gonna have a bad time.

Really RT? Taken 2 is such a violent movie for kids (and dumb for everyone else) and most kids would probably get bored watching Won't Back Down. They have to make smarter and better Family Movie Guides than this...

So Taken 2 counts as a family movie now? Great. Just a few months more and Rambo will show up on here...

Taken 2 was dumbed down to fit the pacified European system. I have to get the Unrated version just to see the movie in its proper form.

But I agree Taken 2 isn't the best film to put on a a family movie list...
