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.

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.

Taken 2 was very good. I enjoyed all aspects of the movie. Liam Neeson was wonderful and it was great to see the original cast return.

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.
