I loved Taken, so going to see Taken was obvious. But the story was somewhat predictable. Overall, the movie was good and I highly recommend everyone seeing it. Liam's acting is so different from his normal everyday self. He is so charged and on point in his acting. The directing and cinematography of the movie was good enough to make me believe that anyone could do some of the things that Liam and his on-screen daughter were doing, except for the driving.

This movie was awesome! I dont think it couldve ever been better than the first one, but it definitely lived up to the name! If you liked the first one, you have to see this one!

Overall a good action flick. Acting is good. Liam, great! Maggie Grace is definitely an up and coming action actor and should be noticed along with her beauty. Problems with the direction were along the lines of bad attention to details (eg, Famke Janssen was upside down bleeding yet when the cover was removed from her head it looked like she hardly bled at all. It was rather ridiculous. But stilled liked all the actors and their performances.

I thought that Liam would be in something more subtle and sophisticated, that is why I went to see this one....turns out that it's chock full of violence upon violence upon violence...and not even the particularly viewable/believable type, e.g., the human fights two men going after each other or a series of men going after one man....the action was so confused that it was impossible to see particular blows, blocked hits, etc....
overall: really disappointed....I walked out of the theatre feeling beat up

The build up to the action took about 30 minutes but as soon as it started, it was non stop. I just didn't like how it was the daughter, without a drivers license, that drove through the tight city streets like a professional.. I mean, that was more comedy than drama.. for me that was the disappointing part of the flick. All in all, I give it 6.5 out of 10.. Will I rent or buy the DVD? Only to add it to the original version as part of the collection but probably would not watch it again.
