    Pretty much a continuing storyline from the first one. I'd ballpark it a 90minute movie excluding the previews and such so it's a good runtime. I'm not a fan of those 2 or 2.5 hr movies. I think the violence was a bit toned down from the first one but overall if you liked the first one you'll like the second one.

    And still why don't they let Maggie Grace be blonde? She looks so much better as a blonde it's amazing.

    I thought the 1st could have been done in 15 minutes.

    I was NOT a fan.

    I seen Taken 2 yesterday. It was good, but IMO the first one was much better. Considering the ending I wonder if they are thinking of a Taken 3. I hope not because I wonder how many more Albanians are left for him to kill.

    that's what the Mrs said, but I don't really expect a 3rd one.

    From what I've read, the writer (Luc Besson) has stated that this one will be the only sequel.

    I haven't seen it, but I'm skeptical. I think the first one stood on its own.

    I really enjoyed the first one, but second one was too korny. A lot more of the girl (not a good thing) and her acting is subpar. My wife thought it was the worst movie ever. I dont recomend it.

    I think anything Under 2hrs is a waste of time that is just trying to rob me of my money.

    I read reviews. I'll wait for it on Netflix instant downloads. Should be there in a couple weeks. I'm just surprised (based on reviews) it didn't go straight to DVD.

    :rofl:

    That movie would only be 20 seconds long, of course, since Chuck can roundhouse kick through the phone.

    I thought the first one was ok, but I give it 5 stars for springing it on my unsuspecting wife right before our daughter when to Paris as an exchange student.

    So I'm a wee bit sadistic

    The daughter should have showm more flesh.

    The mom is still HAWT even though she's near 50.

    They didn't quit making Jurassic Park movies just because Michael Crichton quit writing JP books...

    I've never seen good reviews for a good movie, it's always those foreign films that get the good ones and the really good movies bomb from reviewers.

    I prefer to get info from normal people. Again, if you liked the first one, you'll like the sequel.

    I didn't even notice that, I did say it seemed like they tuned down the violence a bit though
