Taken 2 is just an extended story of Taken...it feels almost like it is the same movie just a short period into the future from where Taken ended. Same characters and a continuation of the original movie. Lots of action, suspense and beatings. I enjoyed.

I saw the first Taken and loved it. Liam Neeson brings it yet again in Taken 2 with a little help from his daughter, played by Maggie Grace. This film has all of the high energy, action, drama and humor of the first, but this time Maggie Grace gets in on the action. Due to the amount of violence in the movie I would not recommend taking anyone under 13. The plot was believable, the acting on point for the whole cast, and cinematography was muy bueno! Istanbul may see an increase in tourism as a result. This movie was AWESOME! Loved every minute of it. Looking forward to Taken 3?! Heck yeah! Some people say they prefer the first movie, but I say I'm Taken with Taken 2! Go see it, you won't regret it.

This movie was not worth seeing. It was just an excuse for a shoot em up watch Liam Neeson kill 20 more bad guys while his wife and daughter watch. Don't bother going.

Producers took a good movie and expanded it into a sequel. And this time it worked quite well. While the first 1/2 hour was sort of sleepy, once the action began, it was a thrill ride to the end. A few flashbacks from the original Taken were presented to refresh our memories (or to inform the non-viewers of the original) were at a minimum but became helpful in recalling the original victims. Lots of action and script was plausible. Good show.
