Taken 2 (2012)

posterDirector: Oliver Megaton

Writer: Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen (Screenplay)

Starring: Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Rade Serbedzija


Story: After the events in the first Taken Murad Krasniqi (Serbedzija) wants revenge for all the death in his family. He wants to take out Bryan Mills (Neeson) and his family Kim(Grace) Lenore (Janssen). Can Bryan save his family before it is too late and stop this man from coming back after his family.




Action: Solid action, car chases, hand to hand combat and plenty of guns. (9/10)


Thriller: Still tries to play the edge of your seat stuff but not to the same level as the first one. (7/10)


Settings: Set in Istanbul, which gives it a much tighter feel when all the action takes place. (8/10)


Suggestion: It is a good action thriller but don’t think it will be remembered as much as the original easy to watch though  (7/10)


Best Part: Casual throwing grenades around the city made me laugh


Worst Part: not the most original idea behind the story

Star Performance Liam Neeson


Favourite Character Bryan Mills


Similar Too: Taken


Overall: If you were a fan of the first one you should watch this if you haven’t seen the original then a lot of this won’t make as much sense so overall it is a good follow up but as a stand out fill just feels a bit rushed.
