Good sequel, first was better

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.

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.

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.
