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.

Taken 2

Disappointing. Especially because the first one was so good. It was great to see the same actors in their roles, but the story was not believable. The writing was poor.

Marko from Tropoje and his family are the most incompetent criminals of all time!!!!! This movie succeeds not because its a good action movie, it hits peaks and valleys there. It succeeds because of the kooky events that transpire. "Kim, your mother is about to be taken...and in a minute so am i"...while pointing a gun at the kidnapper. too funny.

I was not that taken by "Taken 2"

All sequels suffer the pains of trying to equal or surpass their original and most do not succeed. This movie fails to equal its original. The plot is very predictable, the acting is flat, even Liam himself looks bored. You can see in his face that he knows this movie is a failure but hey, it pays the bills so he did it anyway. I can't blame him. The villains die promptly as usual - it quickly became boring to watch. The attempts at humor were well just very sad and painful to see. So for these reasons I would save your money and not see this movie. And it pains me to give this movie a negative review because I am a major fan of Liam. However if you want some real Liam at his best in survival mode see "The Grey" and skip "Taken 2".
