Neeson is back and this time, he's the one in trouble...
26 February 2014
Excerpt: Taken 2 is the slightly unnecessary sequel to the film that saw Liam Neeson stepping forward as an unexpected action hero. As you may recall, in the first film his daughter was taken into a white-slave ring to be sold off as a prostitute whilst on a trip to France. Liam Neeson, her former Special Forces dad, waded in to the rescue and pretty much kicked the ass of anyone who got in his way with explosive consequences.
Excerpt: Having watched Taken earlier in the year, I decided to buy this DVD fr my husband for Christmas. Currently selling for £5 on Amazon with free delivery, I thought it was a reasonable price for a film that was released in September 2012. It was directed by Olivier Megaton and produced by Luc Besson. The film lasts 91 minutes.
Conclusion: They really tried to milk the fans by producing this one... I love the first one very much, but I wish i had never seen this. It hurt for days. The story is horrible, the "villains" seem kind of sympathetic, and the cutting is just awful (especially in the fighting scenes). This is a serious review. I hope the people involved in making this movie feel bad.
Conclusion: To the guy who rated it one star, what are you talking about? The first film isn't exactly believable. Films like these are not set in the real world, it's a fiction action film with a over 50 guy killing hundreds of other guys without them standing a chance. If you enjoyed the first one and not this one, you're deluded, they're both as unrealistic as each other and this one, in my opinion is just as enjoyable as the first one (Mainly because they're so far-fetch!).
Conclusion: don't go into this film expecting the level of suspense or thrills of the first taken.it's not terrible but it's certainly not a a patch on the original.it feels watered down which of course it was
