[Highly rated reviewer]If youve seen the first Taken film, then youve basically seen the second. Some may say thats a flaw (and I suppose in some ways it is), but when the first one was quite an enjoyable action romp, then if you enjoyed it, youll probably like this one too. In the first film, CIA superman, Liam Neesons daughter sets foot outside the good ol U. S. of A. and gets kidnapped (sorry taken) by the first gang of non-American scumbags she ran into. Youd think with that sort of track record, his family may steer well clear of foreign travel. Of course that would make a pretty dull sequel. Instead, they take a relaxing CIA-orientated jaunt back to the hell-holes of Europe and this time Liam and Mrs Liam end up getting taken by an offshoot of the first gang of scumbags, this time wanting revenge. So, Liam must do what he does best which is basically the same as what he did the first time round. Have a few car chases, count things and basically murder everyone he comes across. Its all very serious. I thought that it may stray into tongue-in-cheek, as its so far-fetched, but it never does. Everything is played straight right up until the end. If you liked the first, or are a fan of ultra serious Bourne-style action romps then youll probably like this one too. I look forward to seeing who gets taken in the next film. My moneys on his dog.

Good filmBy a customer , 09 Dec 2013Good film, not as good as first one but still definitely an excellent watch. Like Liam Neeson in this role.
Enjoyable & easy to followBy buildercharlie (6 reviews) , 03 Dec 2013If you liked the first Taken, then this will not disappoint, only this time you know that the bad guys are definitely up against it. Just relax and enjoy.
More of the sameBy JayEmm (12 reviews) , 29 Nov 2013Haven't seen Taken, didn't need to as it was obvious from the beginning what had gone before. Was watchable, decent acting specially from the Neeson, but very predictable and I must admit I cringed ever so slightly at the end when it was left with an end dangling just asking for Taken 3 to be made.
Worth a watchBy cg115 (9 reviews) , 16 Nov 2013Not as good as the first 'Taken' but a worth a watch. Acting was excellent as you would expect but the story very predictable. Found myself not concerned when he gets into bother because you know he will get out of it. Well made film with a good budget.
Taken TwoBy a customer , 07 Nov 2013Taken was good. The follow up is just as good. Quality film all round. Can't fault a well made movie. Solid performances by the cast.
