[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.

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.
Good but shouldn't have made a sequelBy AngryBurd (13 reviews) , 04 Nov 2013Good film but not as great as expected and definitely not anywhere near as good as the first one. Very predictable and the acting was a bit off; Neeson's age is quite visible in his acting in this film and at some parts, the acting wasn't believable at all (fighting scenes).
Love Liam NeesonBy a customer , 30 Oct 2013Just like the first film it has you captured from the start. Yes it is a bit similar and in the same vein but that does not detract from it being a good film and keeping you on the edge of you seats. Loved it and hopefully so will you.
Worth watching both taken and taken 2By a customer , 14 Oct 2013Loved taken, so gave taken 2 a go. So often when there is a second film it is not as good as the first one. Well taken 2 was great. Would recommend them both.
One not to be missed!By a customer , 14 Oct 2013I thought this was a great film, I enjoyed it just as much as Taken. Usually when they make follow on films they are such a let down but not this one!
