Taken 2
 
Is a turd of a movie.

GatorBoyInTN 10-14-2012 12:29 AM

Seriously? I had high expectations for this.

Hopefully Alex Cross is good, I love the books.

Darn! Say it ain't so!

efish44 10-14-2012 12:31 AM

hate to hear that

Anyone else think the name should have been re-taken

friarbolt 10-14-2012 12:31 AM

I'm with the above people, I really hope it doesn't suck I want it to be 1000x more awesome than the first one.

Although it's worth noting an action movie that's badass and a good story don't always have to go together, if the story sucked it might still kick butt if Liam Neeson is doing work.

you just broke my heart :(

We laughed our way out of the theatre after the killer granpa crossface punched a guy to death then face squeezed a guy to death.... (movie hadn't ended...)
People followed us! I would say 20 percent of the people in there lmao.
Save your money wait for the dvd if you really need it in your life. Still not worth the dollar you will spend :D

vc15jrich23 10-14-2012 12:47 AM

it was not a great movie but it did leave off for taken 3 (which already has the green light) although I have a feeling they will make a great 3rd part (and hopfully the series ends) it is one of those ones if you like 3 you will need to own 2 on dvd just to have the collection. Luckily im friends with the manager of a local video store so I get all used dvd's for $5.00 off the shelf after a couple months and the dvd hype is down. I will pick it up for that unless there is some crazy deal for like $10.00 on blu ray with an extra disc full of special features.

It does not suck.
It is not as well written as the 1st movie
there is no "catch" phrase but it was very predictable from start to finish, as expected
there was some unrealistic parts as well
However, it was on par with looper IMO

pretty rotten...

Gibberish 10-14-2012 02:39 AM

3.5/5 would be a 7/10 which is more than I would give it by my rating,still a movie doesnt suck until I consider it a 4 :)

cowboyzqna 10-14-2012 05:23 AM

I liked the first one... wanted to like this one. Alottof slap fighting and talking on the phone.

Idk to each their own and hopefully fans of the first will like it better than we did :)

matt6822 10-14-2012 05:19 PM

It looks like the same freaking movie all over again, only this time his wife gets "taken" and not his daughter.

I'd take his wife anytime :)!:D:eek:

Braveskid1025 10-14-2012 11:30 PM

I loved the first one a lot, and i thought the second one was good too..

Oilngo 10-15-2012 04:10 AM

I liked the second one. Not as good as the first one, but they rarely are.

I was just about to post that.

Seriously, do people watch movies without hearing about the reviews first?

NOT ME!

Going to the theaters has turned into a luxury!

$11 Ticket + Popcorn + Soda X2 ~ $50!

Anyways, I immediately heard about the horrible reviews and decided to skip this one.....saved my hard earned money.

How much is each popcorn and drink? That seems kind of high :confused:

thor_rider08 10-15-2012 05:25 AM

This one was bad..
It looks like he hurts every time he has to move quickly and I did not believe he could swat a fly let alone kick some ass.
It was a bit like watching a baby getting kicked in the head when it first comes out of the vag canal...
Just... abnormal :)

[QUOTE=ilovethelakings;3475556]How much is each popcorn and drink? That seems kind of high :confused:[/QUOTE]

Ticket $11.00 (Adult after 4:00 pm) + $3 extra if it's in 3D

Medium Popcorn $5.00

Medium Coke $4.50

X2 = $42 for Regular.......$48 for 3D.


And it CAN get up to $50 if it's an IMAX ticket which is an extra $4 after the $11 ticket

Yeah.....I miss the old days where you could buy a movie ticket for about $5.

I also miss $2 gas....:D

I call Shenanigans...were you even old enough to drive when gas was regularly $2??

George19 10-15-2012 01:18 PM

I think it was a great movie and actually better than the 1st one - something that rarely happens nowadays.

Plus Maggie Grace looked really hot in this one! :)!

:eek: Its $6 per movie here, and thats full price, not matinee price. It helps living in a smaller town though. I believe its $7 or $8 if its a 3D movie

How exactly did it leave off for a Taken 3? I was trying to catch it when I saw the movie over the weekend.

Taken 2 wasn't all that bad IMO. Not worth the price of the tickets I bought but oh well.
