Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Seems like a nonstop car and foot chase, with Albanian after Albanian falling victim to Bryan's remarkable aim and hand-fighting skills.
Rotten: A meta-American movie, a Godardian spoof of the whole genre, an attempt to see how stupid and insulting a motion picture can be and still be a big hit.
Rotten: "Taken 2" is nearly all nonsense, with villains so inept and slow-moving that there's little satisfaction in watching Mills take them out.
Rotten: There doesn't seem to be a whole lot at stake in a movie where you can crash your way through the armed barricades at the American embassy with a stolen taxicab and survive without a scratch.
NEESON TAKES IT BETTER THE 2nd. TIME
I was invited to the films premiere at the Deauville Film Festival way back in September. I honestly thought Liam Neeson was gonna deliver a better performance the second time; and he did! Phew! Awesome pop corn flick.
Why did it take five years to make a sequel to taken since this one is poor and was released on my birthday?
AN UNNECESSARY THRILL RIDE
We all didn't ask for another taken. But, this is a pretty decent movie. Being a Liam Neeson fan, I was excited for this movie. It was action packed, had an ok story, and a great cast. Kept me at the edge of my seat and entertained. If you're looking for a popcorn muncher thrill ride this is the way to go. I will be purchasing this.
