A dumb thriller with a foolish script. Taylor Lautner has one expression, dazed confusion, no matter what kind of danger he's in so involvement in his plight is minimal. Lily Collins is not much better. Quality actors Maria Bello, Jason Isaacs, and Sigourney Weaver are wasted in ...

Some interesting, Hitchcockian twists and turns but overall the acting and less than perfect action sequences make it difficult to watch.

A very average action/thriller, more of a teenage Bourne identity. It obviously had plenty of money to be spent on it, but from the very experienced cast none of the performances were that good. It does feel like a collection of ideas from other films, but sadly doesn't do them a...

For the record Taylor lautner didn't make this movie suck. The movie would suck no matter who was the main character. The writer and director especially the writer created an awful movie. I like Taylor lautner though. People hatin on him all the time blamin him for the suckiness ...

ABDUCTION isn't a total bomb, but there are two key areas that proved enough as misfires to bring it pretty close. The first of these was the characters. Putting aside the fact that even by the end of the film, we still can't differentiate the trustworthy characters from the cu...

"Abduction" is a movie made for one sole purpose, to show off Taylor Lautner. While he has the look, he can't act and has zero charisma. Just like this movie, so it's a perfect match. The movie is bland, the story is weak, and the action is lame at best. Lautner(Nathan) is a ...

John Singleton‚(TM)s ABDUCTION is the type of movie not seen as often nowadays as in the past: the action star vehicle. These films, which seemed to come in an endless supply during the 1980s action star heyday, usually exist for no other reason than to promote their leading man ...
