Not as good as Taken..... But is #2 ever better than #1 in movies?

I really liked the movie and it's a GO, but it was pretty predictable. I enjoyed the acting, the story-line and where it was filmed and some of the scenes were great. For me! I didn't think it was as good as Taken and it's probably unfair of me to compare.

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!

Plenty of action, but not as realistic as first movie. Driving scene was too far beyond reality. Good but also was ready for movie to get over when it did.

Was worth the price of admission, but I do think the first one was better. This one was slightly more predictable. Rolling the story together from the first one did a good job. Neeson does a good job playing the role of the fatherly bada** who can go from middle-aged father figure to undercover "superhero" at the drop of a grenade. If you liked the first you will like this one.

If you love action flicks, this is the movie for you. it is non-stop, edge of the seat, excitement. my heart was pumping and blood pressure rising the entire movie. This isn't going to win Best Picture. But if there was an academy award for Best Action Flick this is a finalist. Neeson is at his best.
