A lazy, cynical film made for one reason only: to part you from your hard-earned cash. That all said, it holds one's attention surprisingly well.

A sequel to a surprise but modest hit has no right to be this lackluster.

More of the same, but what's in its favor, is Neeson's never-failing man's man toughness, which goes a long way in making for an entertaining film.

The follow-up has less action, less energy, less Liam Neeson awesomeness - in other words less of everything that people liked about the first one.

I surrender! I simply cannot absorb another fist, bullet or knife thrust into my atrophying brain by a hyperventilating Liam Neeson in the name of his stupid, twitty movie daughter, Kim.

"Taken 2" is really, really goofy -- it's even goofier because it thinks it's about the futility of vengeance -- but Liam Neeson almost makes you buy it.

Taken 2 is content to play out as a familiar and lesser version of its predecessor.

Good action. Neeson rocks as the death-dealing American ex-spy. What else do you need? Maybe "Taken 3″ isn't such a bad idea.

Taken 2 is a pointless sequel that tries to capitalize on everything that worked in the first film, without actually including any of it.

This is a halfway decent action film, but I do hope if they make another sequel of this, they make a better one.

More is definitely less in this sequel.

Yeah, 'Taken 2' is pretty much the same movie that 'Taken' was. Like its predecessor, it's preposterous and over-the-top. And, boy, is this actioner ever just plain fun.

If there were any justice in the world, this would be the movie inspiring mass riots. It's that bad.
October 30, 2012
On the evidence of this cheesy sequel, Neeson is in danger of becoming the new Steven Seagal.

Despite some pretty silly plot holes, this is a relatively entertaining hour and a half.

If you lie with dogs, you get fleas; if you go to Europe with Liam Neeson, you get kidnapped.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 18, 2012
... less credible, less suspenseful and less satisfying than it was before.

Unfortunately -- and somewhat embarrassingly for the human race -- there appears to be a sizable market for movies as blitheringly idiotic as this.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Like American filmmakers, it seems the French don't know when to quit, either.

A sloppy, lazy, unintentionally laughable sequel.
