3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, 15 Feb 2013
This review is from: Taken 2 (Extended Harder Cut) [DVD] (DVD)
If you've seen the first Taken film, then you've basically seen the second. Some may say that's a flaw (and I suppose in some ways it is), but when the first one was quite an enjoyable action romp, then if you enjoyed it, you'll probably like this one too.

In the first film, CIA superman, Liam Neeson's daughter sets foot outside the good ol' U.S. of A. and gets kidnapped (sorry... taken) by the first gang of non-American scumbags she ran into. You'd think with that sort of track record, his family may steer well clear of foreign travel. Of course that would make a pretty dull sequel. Instead, they take a relaxing CIA-orientated jaunt back to the hell-holes of Europe and this time Liam and Mrs Liam end up getting taken by an offshoot of the first gang of scumbags, this time wanting revenge.

So, Liam must do what he does best... which is basically the same as what he did the first time round. Have a few car chases, count things and basically murder everyone he comes across.

It's all very serious. I thought that it may stray into tongue-in-cheek, as it's so far-fetched, but it never does. Everything is played straight right up until the end.

If you liked the first, or are a fan of ultra serious Bourne-style action romps then you'll probably like this one too. I look forward to seeing who gets taken in the next film. My money's on his dog.

3.5 out of five.
