“Taken the Mickey”

published 12/06/2013

ProSome solid action choreography.

ConsIt's a tired rehash of the original film.

Bryan Mills returns – a year after rescuing his daughter Kim from human traffickers in Paris, Mills is working in Istanbul. Kim and Bryan’s ex-wife Lenore decide to surprise him. But the families of the men he killed in France are out for revenge and they grab both Bryan and Lenore. So the man...

ProAction-packed, excellent acting, twists and turns

ConsNone!

When it was announced that the sequel to Taken was being produced, I could hardly contain my excitement. Having been my favourite film since its release in 2008, and the action-packed fiasco that made Liam Neeson one of my favourite actors, I have watched it so many times that I can probably...

“Taking the michael”

published 18/03/2013

ProGood action scenes

ConsClumsy plot

This is a film only review. The original Taken was a great film with Liam Neeson bringing a hard cynical edge to the lead character and in 2008 it was probably one of the best action films to be released only really being eclipsed by the Bourne films in my opinion. Taken also had the very...

“Taken again!”

published 07/09/2015

ProLiam Neeson

ConsStory lacks originality

Taken 2 is the 2012 action thriller which continues the story of Bryan Mills and his family as they must deal with a mob boss seeking vengeance against the Mills family, resulting in Bryan having to use his 'unique' skills to try and save the day. In Taken 2, the story is set after the events of...

“I'm not Taken 2 this one.”

published 31/12/2013

ProGreat Cast, Great Location

ConsPoor plot and acting

Having watched Taken earlier in the year, I decided to buy this DVD for my husband for Christmas. Currently selling for £5 on Amazon with free delivery, I thought it was a reasonable price for a film that was released in September 2012. It was directed by Olivier Megaton and produced by Luc...

“Taken.......again!”

published 11/04/2013

ProGood fighting scenes, driving scenes

ConsA bit unbelieveable

Taken......again. You would think that to be kidnapped once in a lifetime is pretty bad luck, but for it to happen to your family twice, well, someone's really got it in for you if that's the case!! Taken 2 follows on very nicely from the first Taken film and if you're not a big fan of sequels I...

Consshort, somewhat predictable

The movie is rather similar in its plot to that of its predecessor, "taken". The movie however remains gripping and there remains unexpected elements throughout. Even though the movie lacks any length it is ideal for those without much time on their hands and/or do not favor lengthy movies. Liam...
