Saw this in the theaters. I LOVED Taken. I could watch that repeatedly.

Taken 2 is, as the reviewer stated, SILLY.

There is a scene in the movie where Liam's character drives to the US embassy. I won't say anymore other than that scene is just preposterous.

This movie is a RENT only IMO. They could have made such a better movie keeping things simple.

I had a quick trigger finger. It was up fairly soon after you posted. No worries. Thanks!

I thought this was just awful. Truly awful. The moment when the daughter started chucking numerous grenades was when I knew the film just had no hope of being decent. The first was a guilty pleasure, but this was just utter trash.

So what is the difference between the Rated and Unrated version? Is the Unrated actually better this time?

I know this is a dumb movie, but I still found it fun to watch. I'm not in a rush to buy it but I'll probably get it eventually.

Mistake in the review:

The only saving grace in 'Taken 2' is the direction of Olivier Megaton (yeah, he call himself Mega...ton, although he was born Fontana)
