Taken 2 - Film review

Vaguely entertaining but really quite average. You know the drill, a little bit of plot which is an excuse for fight choreography and flashbacks to the clever ways that Liam is going to escape and kick the bad guys butts.  But the one thing that kinda shocked me is that it's a 12, it's really quite harsh for that rating. People getting tortured and hung upside down to bleed to death strikes me as a bit unsuitable for 12 years old but hey. The kidnappers are unfeasibly patient and are a. happy to leave their captors alone to give them time to work out an escape plan and b. are the worst shots ever, even when equipped with automatic machine guns. Meh.
