Liam Neeson is back stronger than ever in "Taken 2" and it does not dissapoint. I do not know if it was much better than the first one, but it was action packed, and had everything you wanted in an action movie. We are set in Istanbul, Turkey where CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wide and daughter are planning on taking a few days off from the real world. Little do they know, The father of a kidnapper that Mills killed is set to come after him and his family for revenge. Liam Neeson (Bryan Mills), Maggie Grace (Kim), Famke Janssen (Lenore), Leland Orser (Sam), Jon Gries (Casey), D.B. Sweeney (Bernie), Luke Grimes (Jamie), and Rade Serbedzija (Murad Krasniqi) are in this flick. What would you do to save your family? Brian Mills will do everything in his power to get his wife back along with the safety of his daughter. They took his daughter, now they take his wife. Noone is safe. Go check it out! It was a fun ride for an hour and a half!

Another nail biter. This is one of the rare times that a sequel is as good or better than the 1st movie. I would definitely see it again.

Not as good as the first one, only because it is a bit predictable. Also, a bit more of a chick flick this time. Still, good story and Liam Neeson is really good, as usual.

Basically the film starts where it left off from the first "Taken". You would think ex wife and daughter learn from their previous situation, but no. They manage to get into the same situation, but with a little twist. During that time off from the previous movie, Liam Neeson's character was able to hone his mapping skills using just his watch, listening for nearby auditory cues, and have someone else (I won't say who) throw random grenades. I wouldn't have mind watching this when it comes out on BluRay, but it was okay.

Loved the movie. Was initially not sure I would watch it because some of the reviews have not been overly positive. Guys - it is an action flick, it is not meant to be completely believable (or even remotely plausible) and if the plot is similar to the first movie no probs (it works).
I watched it because we have a serous not to be messed with father, loves his family, stops at nothing to take care of his family. and has amazing skills (fighting, mental, etc).
Definitely a film to be watched.
