Little does the former agent realise that Murad, the father of one of the Albanian kidnappers Brian killed, is plotting revenge in the Turkish metropolis.

what the others say


"The first one offered the novel sight of Oskar Schindler going Commando. Unfortunately, this half-hearted sequel is low on novelty and lower on fun."

Time Out

"A cynical, contemptuous film whose sole reason for existing appears to be to squeeze the pockets of anyone who enjoyed the first movie. Don't give it the satisfaction."

The Hollywood Reporter

"Moviegoers who liked Taken and want more of the same will get precisely that."
