90% chance that it's corny, 10% chance that it's awesome.

I hope it's not corny, but the story line is the type that there's no room for error. The acting has to be absolutely on point in order to not turn it into an atom bomb.

One corny catch phrase and it's game over.


Taken was awesome. And IMO one of those movies that didn't need a sequel.. but I love Liam Neeson so we'll see.

I want it to be good, but I also wanted The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day to be good as well; and THAT was an abject failure... or abortion. Whatever wording does it for ya.

I was all-in right up until the phone monologue to his daughter sounded almost identical to the one that made the first so badass! This could be terrible, I'm afraid!

Amen. What an utter disappointment.

Only time will tell, Im keeping an open mind on this one, because I want to be good so bad.

And if not then well it just gets added to the stack of sequel failures, which there seams to be more of than sequel successes

I liked the first one. I'll watch this one, but after it hits BluRay.

I saw it in theatres over the weekend. I didn't think it was as good as the first one, but it was still pretty decent. I'd recommend watching it.
