Bryan Lienesch75 - The action sequences are near flawless, but the dialogue gets tacky quickly and the plot pushes over that line from extreme to ridiculous.

Dan O'Neill55 - Taken 2 is your typical unneeded, stupid, and unintentionally sequel that seems to get pushed-out every couple of times a year, but for this time, it’s actually fun and keeps your eyes moving along with the quick-fire pace at 91 minutes of pure adrenaline fun, and Liam Neeson bad-assery.

CinemaVisitor Erik20 - I'm a fan of Taken but this pathetic sequel is no more than a great letdown with an unexciting car chase and some shooting around.
