Taken 2

Liam Neeson is back as our favorite kick-ass father but this time out he has to save himself as well as his ex-wife and daughter from the relatives of the human traffickers who kidnapped his daughter previously in Paris. As most sequels go this one suffers from the sophomore slump in that the story is predictable, nothing new about the characters is revealed, and unfortunately previous characters tend to be annoying. The fighting is OK and Liam is still realistic as a tough guy but you really cannot expect too much from a PG-13 action thriller. Maggie Grace still looks good but just a bit to old for her part and how did the psycho Bond girl from Golden Eye become so boring? If you loved the first film like me you may want to pass on this and just re-watch the extended version of the first film on DVD instead.
