Taken 2 a credible and engaging sequel
I was hesitant to see this movie since the original was good but I doubted that one could repeat the intensity of the original. Most sequels fall short in that regard. Taken 2 however found a great tie in to the original movie that was both plausible and which created a decent level of intensity. Liam Neeson's character has his family start to return to him in this movie and the father of one of the guys that Neeson takes out wants revenge for his son's death and the death's of the others that Neeson killed in the first movie. I think if I was an albanian male I might be offended by the generalizations made in the movie but the characters make for engaging evil dudes. They go after Neeson's family and him and the action is intense, the body count high and the tension credible. Which is all you ask for in an action drama. I enjoyed the movie. If you like this genre of movies you will likely enjoy this sequel. This movie is definitely not for young kids. Teens would be ok.
