Taken 2: A Pre-Emptive Critique

I have not seen "Taken 2."  For that matter, I haven't seen "Taken 1" or, as the kids call it, "Taken."  Nevertheless, the whole premise of the new movie compels me to paraphrase Oscar Wilde: "To have a family member kidnapped once, Mr. Neeson, may be regarded as a misfortune; to have it happen again looks like carelessness."  How unlucky IS this family?  And what are the bad guys thinking, exactly: "Yeah, that whole kidnapping thing worked out so well last time, let's try THAT again."  I mean, sure, the Joker keeps trying to kill Batman over and over, but even HE employs different strategies.  And he's nuts!  I give this film three pre-emptive thumbs down.
