Taken 2 is the follow up to the 2009 hit action film Taken. Set some time after the events of the first movie, Taken 2 puts Bryan Mills back into action after. Mills must put his special set of skills to the test after he and his wife are kidnapped by the father of the men he had killed while rescuing his daughter.
This maybe hard to take for those who were a fan of the first movie, but Taken 2 was trying to live off the success of Taken. There were several elements and plot points that were simply recycled. What Taken 2 does Taken did much better.
Though there were one or two action sequences that were well done, they became overlooked by how repetitive the story became.
Rating: 5 out of 10
See on a rainy or Sunday afternoon if you have absolutely nothing else to do. Or you could just watch Taken again.
