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..

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!

A great looking cast cannot save this action flick from resonating as one of the top "bombs" of the year; nonsensical, implausible, laughably ridiculous. Liam Nesson, ageing nicely, is again recreating the role of "Bryan Mills" an ex-CIA operative; "Taken" revolved around the kidnapping of his daughter "Kim" (Maggie Grace) by an Albanian sex trafficking cabal; titillating, spine-tingling scenario made this a fun, fascinating movie experience...
"Taken 2" had a difficult time deciding on who was to be "taken"; Mills? Ex-wife, "Lenore" (Famke Jansson)? Kim? Actually after twenty minutes, it hardly mattered. It is spring break and mother/daughter surprise Mills in Istanbul, Turkey; they are being stalked by the father and his fraternity killers, seeking revenge for the death of sons/brothers killed by Mills in "Taken"...
1 & 1/2 STARS!!

That everything the protagonist does is smart, smooth, and happy ending. Nothing shocking. The whole movie is like trying to show off how good the protagonist's daughter drives.
Overall, good movie with good action scenes, though Liam Neeson's movements seem very slow at fighting.

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!!
