Underwhelming as a whole...

"Listen to me carefully, Kim. Your mother; is going to be taken. And people are gonna come for you to."

A relatively low-budget action movie which became an unexpected box office smash, the original Taken was a total gas - a lean blast of adrenaline puppeteered by a director who understands the art of creating skilful cinematic junk food. The same compliments cannot be applied to th... read more

I really did wish this one would be one par with the original, but it just isn't. It takes to long to get into the plot, where the first one set it up and let it roll, and the action isn't a energetic as the first. The original was a bit cheesy in parts, but it overcame it with some genuine thrills, this one seemed to have "The Hangover" syndrome and rehashed the first films plot. Liam Neeson is s... read more

there was just one scene that made me squirm in my seat, but aside from that, Taken 2 does nothing else to surpass the original. the movie kind of reminded me of the breakfast club, because all the action took place in just one day. also, i don't think that it was a good idea to use the same plot from the original because it lost the excitement that the first was all about. instead of wondering, "... read more

A Complete Review of Luc Besson's work (34 movies items)

" It was actually directed by Olivier Megaton. Luc Besson wrote and produced this movie. Even though, like everyone else, I did like ‘Taken’, I didn’t think it was really that great. Sure, it was an entertaining action flick but without the great Liam Neeson, I’m not sure I would have enjoyed it so much. Anyway, since this movie was a surprise success, of course, they had to come up with a sequel. Obviously, the whole thing was pretty predictable but I thought it was still fairly entert"

Death By Stupidity (9 movies items)

"This one is debatable. Mills gives Murad, the Albanian mob boss, a chance to walk away. Instead of walking away, Murad tries to kill Mills, which turns out to be suicide. Murad's decision seems pretty damn stupid, but I'm not sure if this one counts as stupidity. Albanian culture has the traditional code of laws called the Kanun. In the Kanun, revenge is considered a duty. If Murad did walk away, he would have lived with dishonor for life."
