Looks interesting, I will see it, I just don't get why he would take his family back to the same country where they were just kidnaped in.....he was asking for it if you ask me, but wouldn't really know until I actually see the movie.

While not as memorable as the first one, the sequel still is exciting at many parts.

While it may not soar to the same heights that made the original such a classic, Taken 2 doesn't take the typical action cliche road; instead diverts to a relatively interesting story, good action and adds up to another entertaining popcorn flick. Mindless yet harmless.
Verdict: B

Taken 2 is obviously the sequel to the rather successful action film "Taken", that centers around one of the fathers of the people that Bryan (Liam Nesson) killed in the last film to save his daughter, kidnapping Bryan and his wife for revenge. Basically, it is a letdown from the first one, and it's nothing great like the first film, but the cast is pretty good and the action sequences are well edited, entertaining, and pretty fun. I enjoyed the film more than a lot of "Taken" fans did, and I do recommend it.

This was a hit and mainly miss film in many ways, The action wasn't as good as the first, No blood, The acting wasn't great, A slow start, The gun fights were disappointing but having said all that there was a good car chase and some other good bits, They thought about how much money they could make if they made it a 12A instead of thinking about what the audience wants, So don't go in expecting it to be like number 1 because you will be very disappointed.

How come this has a low tomato meter,
Sometimes i like total shit, and Most of the time i like good movies.
This is one of the shitty movies i enjoy watching.
I Suppose the story and how it is made was superb.

Score: 8/10

Taken....as a 12A tom cruise style action film with generic action sequences lacking brutality, a dull car chase and a coincidentally close gang HQ to Bryan mills hotel. However the first watch is enjoyable but you will feel like it's been snipped for a lower age rating than the original.

Liam Neeson is a joy to watch as always, but he can't save this unessecary sequel from lacking tension and memorable action. It's passable, but highly forgettable.

I desperately want to see this movie I just hope it can live up to the thrilling standards that were laid down by Liam in the previous movie.

Not bad, but not great. Some decent car chases.

It doesn't exceed the brilliance and electrifying feel the first film gave us. Besson who co-wrote the screenplay almost feels as if he's setting this film up so it's the last. Liam Neeson is always a pleasure to watch and Famke Jansen and Maggie Grace are giving it an effort but the film drags on and just as it's about to get at least somewhat good, it goes to the climax as if they were piping you up for a great fireworks show and half-hearted the grande finale. There's also a lot of choppy editing in the first few fight sequences. Fans of the first might at least find it decent enough though I, and possibly others, would recommend seeing the first film before this one.

I m a freekin Liam Neeson fan though Taken 2 was not as expected. Please no Taken 3.
March 20, 2016
This was a "good enough" sequel to the original film, but not quite as good as the first. I tend to like Liam Neeson in almost anything, so even when the script gets a little foolish, he still manages to be entertaining.

Fast, well edited and somewhat entertaining but also entirely underwhelming, unsurprising and occasionally downright ridiculous. Even Liam Neeson can't change that.
March 16, 2016
Not as good as the original due to incoherant action scenes, but manages to be darker and more involving with serious tension and thrill!

The only thing "Taken" this time, was 1hr and 30 mins of my hard earned free time. Liam Neeson wears a bad ass leather coat while taking down whole horde of faceless bad guys, all while trying desperately to keep that PG-13 rating. Will I watch the third? Yes. Do I want to? No. Must I know how the trilogy ends? Of course.
