I was honestly looking forward to it. The first one was very good. I didn't expect this...

9%

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/taken_2_2012/

This will be very indicative of the final aggregate average, so expect it to be low to high teens. The original had an aggregate average of 58%. If I remember correctly, it was closer to 65%-70% around its U.S. release.

I think I'll be saving my money and renting this for a $1 at Redbox.

I think Dredd got rave critical reviews and bombed financially. Amazing how this stuff works.

They can never just have something good and just leave it. Case in point Godfather 3.

I really enjoyed the first one so I'll watch it. I generally don't take reviews to heart.

Will probably see that or Dredd. Saw Looper and left disappointed so Hoping Taken 2 doesnt. Liam has an amazing voice I could listen to all day though. And they should have come up with a better name. Taken 2 just sounds so dumb

LC, Dredd will likely make its budget back thanks to international box office (you guys rock over in the UK), but it'll be close. Too bad because the director and Karl Urban seemed very enthusiastic about the sequel they had planned. I think we should blame it on getting the wrong Lannister sibling for the movie.

Well, what Coppola had planned was going to be great it seems, too bad Duvall refused to return.

Some scathing reviews on RT. I'll watch it though because the first Taken was good and the fact that Liam Neeson comes from Ballymena which is about 30 miles from here.

Not really surprising to me after I watched the trailer. The premise is pretty weak since they are pretty much using the same scenario as the first movie. Going to watch it just for the action so the reviews don't really mean much to me.

The first one was OK. Typical derivative Besson actioner, not worth full ticket price. Probably won't even bother with this one unless it gets good word of mouth which is looking doubtful now.
