It was a great movie. Liam Neeson was as bad ***as last time but it was the same plot. If you want to see him kick some butt again, watch it. They put a nice little twist in the movie this time, but I wish they would have developed it more. Overall, great movie, just same plot.

A little slow at first but hang on for the ride. I didn't keep track of the body count by Mills but I'm thinking 25 to 30....Great action..3 stars..

Taken 2

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.

An hour and a half long trailer.

If you appreciate cuts that are too short, a horribly written script, a reliance on the former movie, rampant discrepancies, and an extreme waste of actors' talent: this movie is for you!

Taken 2 is fun to watch!

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.
