Movie review: Taken 2

Grade: C

I was really expecting this movie to be awful. The good news is that it’s not all that bad. The bad news is that it’s still not that good either.

It really is a complete rehash of the first movie but that shouldn’t surprise anyone. The movie was written by Luc Besson who is certainly talented but a bit predictable.

It was directed by Olivier Megaton who also directed *Columbiana* and *Transporter 3*. Neither of which are going to win any awards but they were also decent movies. I saw both of those movies and thought the director did a good enough job.

Liam Neeson is his usual bad-ass self. Calm under duress as always. I was slightly impressed with Maggie Grace who plays his daughter Kim. She’s improving as an actress. I think these action/drama roles are much more difficult to pull off that people think and she did okay.
