Just finished watching Taken 2. I thought the first Taken was dreadful, really dreadful. Xenophobic, brutal, dumb, exploitative...did I mention dumb? But at least it had a certain energy to it. Taken 2 doesn't even have this one virtue. Plus, the plot is even more preposterous than the first. Still what you expect from a director that has changed his surname to 'Megaton'?
I enjoyed it, entertaining. Im not looking for realism. As far a Xenophobic, many places on the globe arent very American friendly, soooooo..... And I enjoy brutality, guilty pleasure.
