great sequel from the first taken high in suspense, I love Liam Neeson character in this movie perfect for the part of course, uses excellent tactics that allow you to think outside the box. Although this movie could have been a bit longer it doesn't fall short of a movie you'd want to check out or you could wait for the DVD

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.

Taken 2 was very good. I enjoyed all aspects of the movie. Liam Neeson was wonderful and it was great to see the original cast return.

It was a shell of the original. The fight scenes were mediocre and you didn't get the feeling of justified gratuitous violence the original gave you. It was the same let down you get from reading a great book then watching a weak movie adaptation. The motivation to see him lay waste to a gang of scumbags was replaced by watching him beating up actors or stuntmen. When he escaped from his captors it didn't take any real ingenuity just some conveniently place elements that anyone with a brain and a green belt in karate could escape from. I almost felt bad for the actors playing Albanians. I don't know why they made this movie other than a trip to Istanbul and an incredibly inexpensive budget. I don't think it costs much to destroy a couple cars, blow up a couple grenades, and shoot a couple boxes of ammo. Nice hotel though and pretty fly over shots they kept reusing.

This movie just goes from one amazing scene to the next! One of the best car chases I've ever seen and overall photography of Istanbul is excellent! As you probably know from the first Taken, there are some REALLY GRITTY scenes, so think very hard about whether to take a female friend or spouse!
