Mars Review: Taken 2 understands what it’s there to do: to make carnage suspenseful and revenge dramatic. And, in the most elemental way, it succeeds. Exactly what I expected from this type of plot and wanted from the experience… no one who is an action fan is likely to be disappointed. They may laugh at it, but they won’t be yawning.
Stars: 2 out of 5
