    Review: Taken 2 | CraveOnline

    sounding like T2 is 'once too often to the well'.

    I am sitting @ the theatre waiting for The Master right now, so I hope it goes better than your review.

    So... it was OK. PSH and JP were really good. Amy Adams was also good but i thought she would be used differently. The story though... things happen but... I like a story with characters that go through a beginning, middle and end.

    The wife and I saw "Looper" tonight. Really interesting and didn't take itself too seriously. Mr. Levitt is becoming quite an actor and Emily Blount is soooo easy to look at! We liked it.

    Saw Taken 2 over the weekend, and it was pretty much what I expected but not as much as I hoped.

    Ok, I don't know about you folks but when I see someone on the screen that looks an aweful lot like someone else we see in TV my mind automatically thinks of the first person who kind of made the look. There's a character in the movie that looks like the Most Interesting Man in the World guy from the Dos Equis commercials. So every time this guy came on screen I thought of silly saying like "his walet is made of chupacabra leather" or "he bowls over-hand". Even though the guy in the movie is supposed to be bad, I laughed a bit inside and couldn't get around it.

    Other parts seemed a little too unbelieveable. I'm not going to spoil the movie, to me it just seem a little far of a reach.

    I give it a 6.5.

    50/50 - Funny and sad. Jospeh Gordon Levitt is fantastic. So is Angelica Houston.

    Watched Taken for the first time in anticipation of using my Taken 2 movie money this weekend. Liam Neeson = awesome. Maggie Grace pretending to be 17: not so much.

    Maggie Grace is a lot better in Taken 2 and may actually get more work because of it. I thought Famke Jansen gave one of the biggest mailed-in performances of all time in the first Taken; she probably thought it was going to bomb and just wanted her check. She tries in Taken 2, but unfortunately the screenwriter doesn't and the director tries too hard.

    Been watching some mindless stuff lately...



    Better than average. Suffered from JHill overexposure. Not creative at all. It's an Uncle Buck for the modern age with a LOT of justifications passing over race/sexual orientation/general taste. But, at it's heart it means well and is lifted by fun turns by Sam Rockwell(SLUMMING) and J.B. Smoove. Disposable, yet not unwatchable.



    Terribly underrated. One of the earliest LL cool Jay appearances where he is just scene stealing. Steven Lang(Avatar) terrific as the villian...and some nice work between Woods/Fox. Another unloved forgotten raw gem.



    Wow. Blatant ripoff of...everything. But they went all 'proper English' with a lot of the casting. Liotta(also slumming) Lance Henriksen and even Frog Face Dillon do some nice work. Another flick that fell through the cracks but for 90's exploitive cheese...not bad.

    While there were quite a few scary moments, so much about this movie is dumb. Dumb dialogue, ridiculously dumb decisions, explaining every single thing about the "evil" thing to a laughable degree.

    C-

    Pretty awesome that this thread is almost 7 years old. I've gotten more into watching movies lately, and it's been kinda cool going through this thread and picking out stuff to watch - whether it's at the movie theater, watching online through Amazon or through rentals. Only part that sucks is seeing an interesting description, but you get a red X where the picture is supposed to be and the movie title isn't included with the description.

    Of recent releases, I really liked End of Watch. Powerful film. And I liked Trouble with the Curve much more than I thought I would, but Amy Adams probably had a lot to do with that.

    I still can't bring myself to watch Human Centipede 2, but I have watched Girl Next Door, the Loved Ones, Megan is Missing and I Saw the Devil recently. I haven't been able to catch Compliance and V/H/S in the theaters, but I'm sure I'll watch them at some point.
