Abduction Reviews

Deadspin

By the end of "Abduction," it's even becoming difficult for supporting actors like Sigourney Weaver and Alfred Molina to keep from laughing at the lunacy unfolding.

Never goes far wrong as long as Taylor Lautner's in motion

Lautner fans will enjoy five separate occasions where the star takes off his shirt but, for fans of worthwhile trips to the theater, Abduction is hard to recommend.

Card-carrying members of Team Jacob may approve, but Abduction won't help turn Lautner into the action star he clearly aspires to be.

In the end, we're left with a semi-interesting story that was poorly executed and poorly thought out with a bad lead performance that merely exemplifies the weaknesses of the script.

The jury's still out on Lautner's leading man future.

Even subtracting Taylor Lautner's mechanical performance, Abduction is an illogical train wreck riddled with messy direction, bad editing, tired action and plot holes galore.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Lautner is a distracting screen presence; he's like a living Mort Drucker caricature or a 'motion capture' animated avatar of himself. Even so, he deserves better than this.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Boring fugitive action-flick meets insipid teen romance. Well before the movie shows any hint of ending, you'll hope for a quick abduction, by any means, from the cineplex.

The Age (Australia)

The holes in the film's twist-filled story are often so big you could almost squeeze Lautner's sex appeal through them.

At not a single point in this movie is anyone abducted.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

This uneven thriller alternates between fast-paced action and confusing plot situations, but Taylor Lautner takes his shirt off again to please his fans.

The dude is so wooden it's like watching Pinocchio with abs.

Lautner makes a laughable attempt to become an abdominal-flaunting action star in this abominably directed spy drama.

For an entertainment centering on teenagers the violence is, I think, excessive.

You look at the screen mainly because it beats staring at the auditorium walls.

The film's Pittsburgh location is used to nice effect but little else about the movie rings true.

As a stupidly-entertaining, implausible and downright far-fetched action flick, this no-brainer does the job better than the recent 30 Minutes Or Less.
