No sequel hardly ever lives up to it's predecessor, and Taken 2 is no different. Would be an OK movie if you never saw the first. But it is no where near as good as the first. His 'teenaged' daughter looks like mid to late 20s, and the action is a little more unbelievable. My wife liked it which is rare for an action movie, and like I said would have been 'OK' if my expectations were not so high going into it.
