Fans of 24 will find plenty to love about this well-paced, high-action sequel that brings back several beloved characters and adds some promising new faces to the mix (Benjamin Bratt and Yvonne Strahovski, among others). But the best news is, you don't have to be a 24 diehard -- or have encyclopedic knowledge of all things Jack Bauer -- to enjoy 24: Live Another Day.

Of course, much like the show that inspired it, Live Another Day serves up some serious violence with a side of murky messages, making it an iffy pick for impressionable teens who might not not have the patience to ponder such weighty moral quandaries. Another aspect worth mentioning is the addictive, real-time format, which, while no longer new, can still snare the most casual viewer and suck them into Jack's high-stakes world.
