Taken 2 (2012)

An entertaining action movie, with an unforgettable motorbike scene.

Today we saw Taken 2. Definitely not for children so we sneaked in a session while they were at school.

The photography is brilliant and helps hold the movie up as the story is fairly predictable. The car chase sequence was particularly exciting.

Istanbul just looks fantastic. Turkey obviously gave very generous access to the film crew. Actors are running over roofs and setting off grenades in an area that is clearly residential. The police are being depicted as being corrupt and this can’t be good for tourism. Although most people will probably see past the film’s themes and clearly see the beautiful Turkish scenery.

Well worth a look. The movie (and Turkey!)
