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

"21% Consensus: Taken 2 is largely bereft of the kinetic thrills -and suspense- that made the original a hit."

"6.2, Netflix Odotin tämän olevan paljon paskempi. Olin kuitenkin jo unohtanut miten karismaattinen Liam Neeson on, ja toiminta- ja takaa-ajokohtaukset toimivat suht hyvin, vaikka leikkaajan yritys niiden pilaamiseksi on jälleen kova."

An average 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 (I’m pretty sure no one involved expected it to be such a box-office winner), of course, they had to come up with a sequel. Obviously, the whole thing was pretty predictable but I thought it was still fairly entertaining. Sure, some of the action scenes were rather idiotic. The most hilarious one was probably to see Maggie Smith throwing some hand-grenades in the middle of Istanbul without anyone really complaining. I mean, seriously!?! Or the fact that she failed twice her driving license exam but, suddenly, her dad a” read more

“So i was waiting to watch to Superbowl and i had not watched this movie yet so i thought i would give it a watch. Well damn this movie is really just a time killer i wish i could get back the 1hr 40mins. Really Liam Neeson couldn't even save this movie with is horrible script and the bad acting this film should have never been made but that being said the movie did have some cool deaths scenes. This movie was just made just for the fact that the first film did well so they thought a 2nd film would do just as well at the box office. Well they were right it did great at the box office and that Monday or Tuesday they announced that they will be doing a 3rd film.

Worst Films of 2012 (10 movies items)

"I'm within the minority of people who wasn't an awe of 'Taken'. At best I thought it was a family friendly version of 'Man on Fire'. Now I love Liam Neeson. Fantastic actor of many genres and for me made one of his best performances in January with 'The Grey'. 'Taken 2' however is just a boring, drab, exercise in trying way to hard to make a stylish action thriller which is devoid of any real drama. The villains, while actually having a decent motive conduct themselves in such disbanded ways t"

Taken 2 wasn't what i was hoping for but it does its job of entertaining and engaging well enough for a sequel.” read more

“"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 this inevitable follow-up, however. Taken 2 is an oddly lethargic sequel; a poorly crafted action movie which lacks the spark of viciousness and the jittery sense of momentum which fuelled its predecessor. It's not a complete bust, but the picture is underwhelming as a whole.
