'Taken 2' was exactly what I thought it was going to be, and that was something that would pale in comparison to the original, and I was right. It had so much to live up to, and I was just going to be happy if it was at least a decent film in its own right, which I’m glad to say it was.
“In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter.”
It had the same cheese and laugh-at-it not-with-it moments as the first one did, and it also had some good action and enough cool little moments to make it stand out from just any other action film. But at the end of the day, it 'was' just another solid action film. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it, and am content to never see it again, and it in no way tarnishes the memory for the awesome first one.
