Summary: This film had been savaged by critics, and my viewing of the first half had almost led me to the same conclusion: this is a pale & talkative sequel of the first & original "Taken", a film that had made Liam Neeson an unlikely hero for this generation. However, the second half proved why the viewers had loved this film and had made it a box-office hit. The second half was action-packed, tight, suspenseful, and wonderfully kick-ass.
Summary: TAKEN (one) was brilliant but TAKEN (two) was bland by comparison. Liam
Neeson still has the perfect ‘dont panic’ voice but he has aged quickly and
his character looks uncomfortable with the action scenes. The wife was woody and
the bad guy was ‘naughty’ not ‘evil’.
What saved the movie was the daughter … she is an amazing actress. You feel
her terror and cling to her emotional rollercoaster thru-out the movie.
Summary: Bra uppföljare om än inte så nydanande. Liam Neeson är bra som närstridsskicklig och strategisk f.d. CIA-agent. Koppla bort eventuella tankar om hur skurkars nationalitet och stereotyper och njut av en häftig actionresa.
