Taken 2

Okay, so here it is, I'm a bit behind on my cinema experiences as of late, but I'll catch you up on what I've seen thus far.

I've finally watched Taken 2. Now when I first heard they were doing Taken 2, I was like, "really? Some movies don't need sequels." But I enjoyed "Taken" so much, I decided to check out the sequel. Well, I'm pleased to say that it wasn't what I was expecting and let me clarify that I try my best not to put my expectations on movies, but sometimes I can't help it.

Liam Neeson was pretty kickass in the movie and what works is that he was believable in his kickassery. (Oh, by the way, I will be making up my own words of the course of my reviews).

The storyline was entertaining and plausible. I will say that the villains were a little too lax, so to speak. That's just a nice way to say that they did some dumb things in that movie. Still, the story was solid enough to make the hero look good and create enough drama. I'm actually looking forward to Taken 3 which I clearly see one coming. The one thing that did annoy me was the daughter. I don't know, but after being kidnapped, drugged and sold to a grotesque man for his carnal pleasures, you'd think a girl would want her father to be concerned about the men in her life.
"Yes, Daddy, please do a background check on all of my boyfriends, car mechanics, doctors, etc." Call me paranoid if you want to. It's always better to be safe than sorry. And I will enable GPS on all of my Wi-Fi devices. I want my special agent father to be able to find me anywhere, even on the moon.

I thought the daughter was a bit too carefree and unappreciative, not to mention a little stupid considering who her father is and what she's been through. The mother really does need to learn some defense techniques for her own good if she's going to be hanging around with her ex-husband and daughter. But overall, it was a pretty good movie. I'd give it a B+
