Taken 2: Skip the Film and Cut To The Chase

VaRaces: "After saving his kidnapped daughter Kim from human traffikers in the first film, the father figure and ex CIA operative gets ‘taken’ himself along with his ex wife Lenore by a gang of Albanian henchman out to seek revenge for the countless number of men that Brian shot, punched and electrecuted in the last film. All in all, while entertaining, Taken 2 pales in comparison to the acclaimed original thanks to its lazy writing, ridiculous plot and watered-down violence.

Fortunately, there was at least one aspect of the sequel that improved on its predecessor. You guessed it: the car chase." (Blu-ray, DVD, Taken 2)
