Although this movie mostly involves Albanian mafia and thugs, there is only one member of the cast who actually is Albanian. See more »
When Kim is making circles on the map, she compares the shoelace to the map's scale as a reference, but doesn't hold the lace flat against the map when drawing the circles; instead, the lace acts as the hypotenuse of a right triangle, with the pen and map as the other two sides. Any circles drawn in this manner would be smaller than intended. See more »
He slaughtered our men, our brothers, our sons. The dead cry out to us for justice. On their souls, I swear to you. The man who took our loved ones from us, the man who has brought us such pain and sorrow, we will find him. We will bring him here. We will not rest until his blood flows into this very ground. We will have our revenge.

The last shot of the credits states: "The making and legal distribution of this film supported over 14,000 jobs and involved over 600,000 work hours." This is the first movie with such message of Fox campaign to educate consumers on economic impact of film and TV. See more »
I am a big fan of the first taken movie, it not only had professional cinematography but great action, suspense and originality. Now this sequel i am ashamed to say was a money grab by the producers. Now Luc Besson and Robert wrote the original script without being pressured by their superiors to be limited to a marketable plot, unfortunately thats what has happened to Taken 2.
The plot follows Liam Neeson after the events of the original and well its the pretty much an identical situation.
The climax however is the main issue , it's rushed. It just happens and I was left wondering why it just ended so fast.
I cannot say this movie was terrible because it wasn't, it was just a movie that could not even close live up to its predecessor due to lack of depth and originality.
Don't waste your money at the cinemas Wait till its on DVD
