This sequel just comes off as rushed and very lazy in terms of plotting. If [the writers] had taken their time with it, they would have seen that the story is full of holes and that it was lacking the essential elements to engage the audience once more.
There wasn't really anywhere for the story to go after 2008's surprise hit Taken, and this movie quickly proves that. Not only does it have that same appalling moral vacuum at the centre, but the plot becomes increasingly absurd as it progresses.
