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.

Exciting but not as good as first Taken movie.

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.

Good, but......over-rated.

Good, but not as good as the first. Some of the same lines were used....which was kind of corny ("Focus, I need you to focus"). Neeson's particular set of skills were once again displayed in an entertaining way, but unoriginal. Over-rated, but worth seeing.

Taken 2

The first one was better only because you can't do the same thing in 2 movies and expect the second one to get rated as high as the first. The plot was not the best. His ex wife should have been killed. Since Bourne everybody has their own one man gang taking on the bad guys. At least in Man on Fire the main character died. I know it was based on a true story. Stop making all these super human one man gang movies. You've seen one you practically seen them all.

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.
