Rotten: The one thing that comes across is Neeson's character really likes fighting Albanians.
- Adam Graham, Detroit News, Friday, October 5, 2012
Rotten: A meta-American movie, a Godardian spoof of the whole genre, an attempt to see how stupid and insulting a motion picture can be and still be a big hit.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Sunday, October 7, 2012
Rotten: A sequel every bit as clumsy, ham-handed, outlandish and laughable as the original was sleek, tough and efficient.

its surprising me that Liam Nelson who kidnapped. but the 1st movie much better than this. btw, I like the ending.

A very enjoyable sequel with plenty of action. It's missing a certain something second time round though, maybe the detective work to track his daughter down added more suspense in the first. Good to see the daughter and ex-wife have larger roles this time though. Unfortunately though I got a bad feeling there could be a 3rd, which really would stretch the franchise too far.

First they took his daughter. Now they're coming for him. Took me away again It's very hard that I can actually watch a hollywood action film and enjoy it. Infact the last time that happened was probably in 2008 when Taken came out. However, I was able to fully enjoy Taken 2 too. "When the father of one of the villains Bryan killed swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape." Alright the movie is repetitive, but if it worked the first time than it worked this time too, obviously not to the same level, but it was able to fully keep me entertained and rooting for some Mills action. Like mentioned Im not a huge fan of action films when it is made in the famous hollywood explosion manner. However, the Taken franchise has able to add something new on screen that really is able to catch my attention. Maybe it is Neeson's wonderful acting of the pacing of the movie. Whatever it is they are doing it's working, at least for me. I really enjoyed this movie. Bryan Mills: I killed your son because he kidnapped my daughter!
