MY FULL REVIEW HERE: http://www.examiner.com/review/taken-2-neeson-can-save-his-wife-and-daughter-but-not-this-script
Unfortunately, the rest of the film not so much. The dialogue is pretty brutal, and the lack of an R rating REALLY hurts the film's impact.
I was watching the bad guy wishing to God they'd put Mandy Patinkin in that role instead.
It's okay-- it's diverting, I suppose. Nothing awful, outside of the dialogue.
*** MILD SPOILER *** My theater groaned when he was preparing to leave his wife for the third time in the film. "Wait here! I'll be right back!" *rolls eyes* *** MILD SPOILER OVER ***
But yeah. I mean, coulda been worse... but shoulda been better.
