  • Taken 2 is like a textbook on how to make beautiful, successful and highly satisfying junk-food cinema. When it's just a plot point, the information gets tossed out as fast and as forcefully as possible. Time is lavished only on the things that matter. show more

  • The first half of Taken 2 is a serviceable action flick, but the second half descends into cliches. show more

  • Less magical is the blind adherence to formula evident in most of Taken 2. As they might say in the advertising department, it's an adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. But it could have been much more. show more

    Saw this on the plane. Thankfully I didn\'t pay for it. I would not recommend it.

    Good action. The story seemed rushed but still worthy for a movie night. Not a buy though.
