Overall a good action filled movie. Not a total waste of $ as some claimed. I have seen many terrible movies where they should have paid people to see the movies for wasting 2 hours of our lives. This movie is for entertainment purpose and it definitely is worth paying to watch it. It the is food and the drinks that costs a lot more $ than the ticket. SIGH ! YIKES ! but who is going to pay for the air condition if things are cheap for people. Sorry my mind wander too far. Surely Taken 2 is not as great as the first Taken movie. Definitely there are some issues ( which I now forget after watching it ) . Now comes the complaint : Poor filming technique . Right at the film credit of actor name, producers, directors, this part could cause episode of seizure from burst of shots of dark and light shots. It was awful for a beginning section. Secondly, same problem for the first action part where Liam gets into contact fight with the bad guys, the film action scenes are burst of shots instead of a longer flowing action long filming. This is an uneasy and uncomfortable filming section for the eyes. The film cut editing person is likely a beginning editor. After that part, things gets better and action flows evenly as should be. Some viewer complained why police don't shows up quickly. FOLKS, it's a foreign country, some time you have to pay to get the police there. Don't be so naive to expect the cops to come in 1 minute like in the movies. It takes them 10-20 minutes or longer to get there. Sorry out of space .
