Basically the film starts where it left off from the first "Taken". You would think ex wife and daughter learn from their previous situation, but no. They manage to get into the same situation, but with a little twist. During that time off from the previous movie, Liam Neeson's character was able to hone his mapping skills using just his watch, listening for nearby auditory cues, and have someone else (I won't say who) throw random grenades. I wouldn't have mind watching this when it comes out on BluRay, but it was okay.

If you liked Taken 1, Taken 2 will deliver. I thought Taken 1 was a little cheesy but still entertaining. Taken 2 was cheesier but the killings were good and isn't that what Taken is all about anyway? The writing was good, I didn't feel it was incredibly predictable considering the type of movie it is. I am tough on movies so when I say "so-so" I still think it is worth seeing.

I realy liked this film. Foirst of all I like Luc Besson ad Liam Nesson. here was so much suspense and Neeson is just such a realistc actor. He is that good. Besson is the best. Magguie Grace is so cool. I think the cast and the idea of a family ding all tis CIA stuff is ingenious as they are so together and love each other. I thought it was funny to see Maggie drive thru Isanbul like a mad waman stockcar Danica Partrck and then pass her driving test in LA.
One very cool film. Liam should win a nomination for best actror and Luc Besson for best writer screenplay.

I said this before the movie, and ironically there was a trailer for the new Die Hard, but, Liam Neeson is taking over for Bruce Willis as the resident bad ass. The movie was great, all the actors played their parts perfectly. The action was great and of course Liam Neeson is just too cool for school. But, I actually like Taken better than Taken 2. It just seemed more realistic the way things went down. I don't want to give anything away, but I had beef with the daughter driving. When you see it, you may understand the irony of her skills. However, it was still an awesome flick and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes action :)
