Taken 2 (2012)
Genre: Action, Thriller
This film has quite a slow start compared to the pace of the first film. Maybe it is slower because I know what film 1 was like and I am waiting for the action / drama to begin. This time because I know who Bryan Mills is, how he operates and the style of this film’s genre, I am waiting for it. However, I am still unsure whether the wait was worth it 😛 . The films “side” gets confusing, who am I meant to be cheering on? It was irritating that the “bad guys” kept pointing out Mills is a murderer. His character seemed to have lost his motivation and strength. The daughter had the most interesting scenes and the film does get better because of the action alone 🙂 . Main three actors were great but the narrative was clutching at straws. They shouldn’t have made this sequel but it’s ok I suppose. Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 1.5 Stars out of 5!
