The original Taken wasn't a great film. I say that with full knowledge that Liam Neeson could be scouring the internet for reviews, and will no doubt be able to find me. Taken will be known as the film that Neeson broke out as the next big action star, which is something I never would have predicted. Neeson was absolutely awesome in the original, and brought a very unique presence to the action genre. It was enough to make it a fun two hours of action. Now, Taken 2 has been released and the main appeal will be watching Neeson break bad men in half. Is the Neeson magic enough to make the sequel worthwhile?
