Taken 2 is largely bereft of the kinetic thrills -- and surprises -- that made the original a hit. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Two years ago, retired CIA agent Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) used his "particular set of skills" to rescue his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace), from kidnappers. Since then, Kim has been learning self-defense from her father, and Bryan has been on a personal mission to reunite with his ex-wife (Famke Janssen). In Istanbul, Bryan and his family cross paths with Murad (Rade Serbedzija), whose son died at Bryan's hand during Kim's rescue. Murad wants revenge, and he'll stop at nothing to get it.

Audience Reviews for Taken 2

  • Mar 16, 2019
    The Die Hard 3 of the Taken franchise, except like... Nowhere near as good. Serviceable, but a step down from the first film, and even that one was pretty overrated.

    I m a freekin Liam Neeson fan though Taken 2 was not as expected. Please no Taken 3.

    Weak plot, underutilized villain and poorly edited fight scenes. Taken 2 is an unnecessary sequel to a perfectly fine movie. Though it does have some thrilling sequences and another exceptional performance by Liam Neeson.

    The sequel which could have started off one of the best action franchises of all time but ultimately fell flat. The movie is poorly directed by Olivier Megaton who over used shaky cam, the writing is cliched and stupid but to be honest I can't help but like it for being so bad, there is some redeeming factors like Liam Neeson who always puts in a great performance but overall the film is stupid and that's why I like it. I give this film 6/10.
