More of the sameBy TheWatchman (749 reviews) from Suburbia , 15 Feb 2013
[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.

After i've killed U, ur 2 sons r going to come after me to take revenge. But i'll kill them too.'By azman (6 reviews) from Gravesend , 24 Apr 2013Excellent film, really enjoyed it all the way. But I think the problem with most of the bad reviewes here is that they compared the film to it's predecessor. A common mistake a lot of viewer's make. Leam Neeson rocks. My final rating 4 1/2 out of a possible 5. Azman Ali. Meopham Kent
Hmmm okBy a customer , 24 Apr 2013It was an om film but just too implausible to take seriously. Shame to see Liam Neeson in such a role as his acting abilities seem wasted here. Hopefully there will not be Taken 3!
More action then the firstBy klhull0 (2 reviews) from Brough , 24 Apr 2013I heard bad reviews about this film saying it was not as good as the first one but I was very impressed. I felt there was more action in this then the first and I enjoyed it.
waste of time!By xLozx (2 reviews) from London , 23 Apr 2013Well if you fancy watching something really bad then this is it! Poor script/camera/acting, the only thing this disc is worthy of...... is to be used as a coaster!
