Taken ".2"

It was a shell of the original. The fight scenes were mediocre and you didn't get the feeling of justified gratuitous violence the original gave you. It was the same let down you get from reading a great book then watching a weak movie adaptation. The motivation to see him lay waste to a gang of scumbags was replaced by watching him beating up actors or stuntmen. When he escaped from his captors it didn't take any real ingenuity just some conveniently place elements that anyone with a brain and a green belt in karate could escape from. I almost felt bad for the actors playing Albanians. I don't know why they made this movie other than a trip to Istanbul and an incredibly inexpensive budget. I don't think it costs much to destroy a couple cars, blow up a couple grenades, and shoot a couple boxes of ammo. Nice hotel though and pretty fly over shots they kept reusing.

This movie just goes from one amazing scene to the next! One of the best car chases I've ever seen and overall photography of Istanbul is excellent! As you probably know from the first Taken, there are some REALLY GRITTY scenes, so think very hard about whether to take a female friend or spouse!

I definitely recommend if you were a fan of the 1st one. It does sort of start out slow and whatnot, but it gets your heart racing once it starts getting to the main points. I don't want to spoil anything for those of you that haven't seen it. but i say...MUST WATCH!

I was thinking twice about yet another ''2" version, as the first movie was right on. You will not be disappointed the second one was just as entertaining.
