I had reviewed Taken 2 movie in my blog (317cauvery in blogspot).
In my opinion, Taken 2 is better than Skyfall, for it has all the elements to call itself a Bond movie, but for the "My name is Bond" and the Bond's theme music.

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.

Loved the movie. Was initially not sure I would watch it because some of the reviews have not been overly positive. Guys - it is an action flick, it is not meant to be completely believable (or even remotely plausible) and if the plot is similar to the first movie no probs (it works).
I watched it because we have a serous not to be messed with father, loves his family, stops at nothing to take care of his family. and has amazing skills (fighting, mental, etc).
Definitely a film to be watched.

When i first heard about taken 2 i thought it was going to be dumb but now that i've seen it i actually enjoyed it a lot! It's kimd of the same thimg as the first one but i LOVED the first one so more of the same thing was no preoblem for me. I felt this one kim (maggie grace) had a lot bigger part which i enjoyed and i won't spoil anything but lets just say she's following her dads footsteps!. Liam neeson is the same old liam neeson that weve grown to love so that was expected but this was a all around fun sequel 8.5/10
