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.

I was thinking twice about yet another ''2" version, as the first movie was right on. You will not be disappointed the second one was just as entertaining.

I took my wife to see the movies and it was great. There was more action and more involvement from his ex-wife and daughter. The movie was just incredible. Can't wait until comes out on the DVD.

I realy liked this film. Foirst of all I like Luc Besson ad Liam Nesson. here was so much suspense and Neeson is just such a realistc actor. He is that good. Besson is the best. Magguie Grace is so cool. I think the cast and the idea of a family ding all tis CIA stuff is ingenious as they are so together and love each other. I thought it was funny to see Maggie drive thru Isanbul like a mad waman stockcar Danica Partrck and then pass her driving test in LA. One very cool film. Liam should win a nomination for best actror and Luc Besson for best writer screenplay. Roberrt Buxton
