We love Liam Neeson, but this movie was lacking in believability. A lot of action, but the movie seemed rushed. Good concept, but fell short for us. Not as good as the first by a long shot. Would not have this one in my collection.

This was a very good movie. I enjoyed the action and the connection to the first Taken movie. I would watch it again. Liam Neeson did not disappoint!!

I LOVED the first Taken movie, and also very much enjoyed Taken 2. Even though the first was better -- Taken 2 is still lots of fun to watch. Taken 2 is totally driven by its predecessor movie, so it helps to have seen the prior movie. I thought Liam Neeson was great as the devoted dad (Bryan) who still wants to get back with his ex-wife. I thought the Istanbul scenes were very good and authentic. Maggie Grace was cute again as Kim. She is a little edgier now with her new boyfriend, so at least she is a little more mature in this new movie. The only part I didn't like was the final fight scene against a pudgy, short bad guy -- Bryan and this guy had no running animosity or ongoing issue so I don't understand why the director would have Bryan's final fight scene against this pudgy guy. Other than that, I enjoyed the movie very much.

Taken 2 was good, but...

The movie was good. However, I could have waited to see it On Demand or DVD. I feel it wasn't as good as the original, like most sequels. It was typical Taken perdicaments and crazy ways on how Brian uses "his skills" to get out of them. Not as much action as I hoped, but good enough for me to see again outside of the theatre.

Not as good as Taken..... But is #2 ever better than #1 in movies?

I really liked the movie and it's a GO, but it was pretty predictable. I enjoyed the acting, the story-line and where it was filmed and some of the scenes were great. For me! I didn't think it was as good as Taken and it's probably unfair of me to compare.
