Taken 2

20130119-075107.jpgI don’t have a lot to say about this one; it was exactly what I expected and did not disappoint. I’d say it isn’t as dark as the first one, which renders it more of a straight-forward hero fantasy.
In a way, this reminds me of a book series I’ve read, 3rd World Products, which sometimes reads a bit too much as self-aggrandizement by the author. Taken 2, as well as Taken for that matter, likely avoid this by simply feeling more detached from the writer.

    I was mostly disapppointed by the sequel. It had none of the smarts of the original, and lacked much of the suspense which made the first film such popcorn movie fare.

      I don’t disagree and I see rereading my post that I didn’t effectively communicate that my expectations were low to begin with.

      Also, I wonder if having two daughters of my own contributes to a bit of relief in watching this one versus the first?
