Saw this on Tuesday and the more I think about it, the more it annoys me. Besson and Fox seem to have purposefully shat all over a successful character just so they could shill it to a younger crowd. It's a shameless move to try to squeeze as much money out of this "series" before its limited lifespan runs out.

In the UK, Fox axed portions of 3 scenes to get a 12A rating, which essentially means that kids can see it, so long as they're with an adult.  The original was a 15 cert which was then released as an 18 on Blu-ray.  When the certification was announced, there was a collective groan, but I don't think anyone thought it'd be this bad.

If there's a Tak3n, I may just give up altogether.

Here's my full, spoiler-free
review of the second and hopefully last Taken (londonfilmfanatiq.com).

I found Taken 2 to be pretty much the same as Taken 1 except more boring and more grating. But I didn't hate it. (backofthehead.com) SPOILERS.

But I like Megan Ganz of Community's take on Taken 2 the best:

So if the villains of this one are related to the villains of the first movie, would it be fair to say that this film should've been called Taken: Revenge Of The Taker?

The trilogy should use the titles Taken, Took, and Yoink.

Exactly, and I think this is something they needed to do. Why not tackle something topical for once? It's a departure to be sure, but I think they needed a shakeup of some sort after blandness in Saw 4 and 5.
