From Amazon.co.uk

Coming at a time when the action genre was dominated by shaky-cam Bourne editing shenanigans, 2008's Taken registered as a pleasantly streamlined surprise: a straight-ahead thriller where the clean, clear style both matched and accentuated Liam Neeson's ruthless-blunt-object force. Strangely, the sequel feels much more in line with producer Luc (The Transporter, Colombiana) Besson's other franchises--noisy, chaotically slammed together, and in dazed thrall to its own flash. (If there's an opportunity for a swooping helicopter shot or a fruit-cart collision, this sucker's going to go for two.) However, even if it can't match the impact of its predecessor, the sight of Neeson in righteous revenge mode still carries some considerably addictive juice. Set several years after the events of the first installment, the story finds Neeson's black-ops professional losing ground with his beloved daughter (Maggie Grace), while forming a tentative rapprochement with his ex-wife (the always welcome Famke Janssen). During a working vacation in Istanbul, their family ties are sorely testing by the appearance of an army of villains with a particular score to settle. Director Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) digresses wildly from previous director Pierre Morel's no-nonsense approach, choosing instead to revel in over-the-top implausibilities; some pleasantly goofy (two words: grenade cartography), and others just sort of baffling (the reprisal of the first film's famous phone call comes in the middle of a fight scene, while a bunch of armed goons stand around obligingly). Still, even if the narrative rarely makes sense, Neeson keeps things from wandering too far off track, via sheer movie star presence. Craggier and somehow taller than ever, he makes for an ideal Family Man of Action: intriguingly self-contained, tender in repose, and absolutely ferocious when provoked. When he gets going, prepare to feel a little sorry for the bad guys. --Andrew Wright

I've put off watching this film for a while now as I've heard so many bad things about it but I knew I'd get round to it eventually. To be honest after watching it I have no idea what people were looking for.

It was never going to be as good as Taken due to the fact we have seen his fighting skills, we know his other abilities, we know how hard he is and that he won't quit, we know that the bad guys are only there for him to work his way through and we know everything will be peachy in the end. All that really left for Taken 2 was them to make another action movie with the same cast.

Personally I felt the storyline was good, plenty of action and the same cast. It was definitely better than people made it out to be but as expected it wasn't as good as Taken and I never expected this to be one of the very few movies where the sequel was better than the first one.

I've read reviews on here from would be movie directors who sit around and dissect movies. Being honest I prefer reading so if I sit back and watch a movie I generally want to turn my brain off and just enjoy what's going on. I thoroughly enjoyed Taken 2 and have no complaints. I'm only deducting 1 star as it wasn't as good as the first one.

Didn't like the start of the movie the loud dramatic music was off putting but stick with it as its good plenty of action, a bit Steven Seagal style of fighting but its decent.One or two silly moments but overall good recommended

Again Taken 2 fails to impress me due to the stupidity of the story and the amateurish direction and script writing. First let me point out the actors playing the Albanians in this movie none of them is Albanian apart from a hotel receptionist. In the credits you can clearly see all the actors are either Turkish or middle easterners. Albanian names are specific and easy to spot.a bit of research Mr Director.What team do you have to do your research honestly? The people in the mountains of Tropoje Albania that they are portraying here are Christian Roman catholics not muslim and I have never seen an Albanian national with a tattoo with a moon and star on their hand. They have an Albanian Eagle tattoo so this just amateurish directing with false information. If the real Albanian Mafia are was against him he would not last very long let alone escape and kill them all with ease.The Albanian Mafia if you research they are not religious let alone greet each other in the islamic way which they are not which is ridiculous and a big flow in the writers of this movie. Its simply a racist and non accurate movie. If you want to make a movie try to find the proper Albanian actors for it not actors that find a word on the dictionary which the cant even say correctly.To top that again a racial approach towards muslims in general. Again this movie tells you if you go abroad in this case Turkey you can do whatever you like. Basically you own the place. Awful movie. How some have given this movie 5stars is beyond me. Rewarding an amateur director for a terrible movie. As a movie fan this is ridiculous.

Format: Blu-ray
Based on the screen appeal of Liam Neeson and the sex slave trade in Eastern Europe, we give you "Taken 2." In Eastern Europe the action takes place shorty after Bryan Mills (Liam) went "walking tall" all over them to save his daughter in the first feature. They are burying their dead and vow revenge. Yes, slave traders love their children too. In the US, the action takes place at some time in the future from the first film. Liam's ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) is now separated from her husband and daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) with whom Bryan has built a solid relationship by rescuing her from slave traders, is slightly ungrateful as she would now rather spend time with her boyfriend Jamie (Luke Grimes) then let dad give her much needed driving lessons.

In order to make it easy on the script writers, Bryan and family travel to Istanbul. In spite of Liam's alertness, savvy, and being a lean mean fighting machine, his ex-wife is not and they are "taken" because "Kidnapped" has been used as too many film titles. Armed with a cell phone with a Turkish SIM card, a shoe lace, and some government issue grenades, Kim goes McGyver on them to save the family.

Definitely lacks the intensity of the first film. Okay as a rental.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Taken 2 manages to do some of the things that any good sequel should do:
It enriches the first film's plot by expanding it naturally.
Neeson's hero, Brian Mills, is fleshed out further. This time the expansion of his character isn't demonstrated by his gunplay, but by his ingrained habits and skills - obsessive punctuality, over-caution, and some fun (if slightly far-fetched) tradecraft skills such as tracking locations in original ways that add a frisson of fun to standard thriller scenes.
Janssen's ex-wife character is much the same as before, if getting more screen time. And Maggie Grace gets a lot more to do, her role expanding to include facing up to her fears, and also some badass driving during the film's exhilarating standout car chase sequence - a smashing chase through the heart of Istanbul.
The plot also grows nicely organically from the first film, and feels like a good realistic reason for a sequel, which is a nice change in a world of franchise movies with increasingly thin reasons for extending the money-train.
The bad guys are quite well played, and the fights, chases and gunplay are quite well directed. This was especially satisfying for me, as my heart fell when I heard that Olivier Megaton had been handed this film, given the tacky, throwaway job he'd done on the pretty awful Transporter 3. Luckily this time he's on far better form, his directing showing that maybe more serious tones suit him better. He still frames too close to the action, often obscuring some of the moves and creating confusion during the bigger fights, and he still doesn't know how to shoot a city so it feels distinctive (Istanbul comes out feeling very much like 'generic Islamic city' despite the frequent rooftop shots of tourist attractions).
