Abduction Reviews

Will Leitch

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.

Ben Kendrick

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.

We Got This Covered

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

Jeff Beck

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.

FILMINK (Australia)

Singleton is poorly equipped to handle teenage angst, a fact made far worse by cringe-worthy dialogue and a wooden leading man who proves that he has not yet developed the skills required to carry a film.

A made-by-committee exercise in soulless money-grubbing.

Taylor Lautner can't carry a movie any more than Abigail Breslin can carry a refrigerator.

Two reasons not to go see Abduction: first, every screening is guaranteed to be jam-packed with rabid girls squealing every time its star, Twilight's Taylor Lautner is on screen. Second: it's just not a good movie.

A blockhead espionage thriller from director-for-hire John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood).

What Culture

Yet another embarrassing squandering of John Singleton's talent, and proof that Taylor Lautner isn't ready to carry a film on his broad shoulders.

We may never know if Abduction is satire or misfire, but I spent the entire film wracked by gales of choking laughter.

Last I checked, tweenage girls weren't too keen on this genre, and the boys who normally would be a fan will likely be disappointed by [Abduction's] bloodless, stagnant lameness.

Abduction is a brilliant action/thriller spoof that had me laughing from start to finish. Unfortunately, it is supposed to be an action/thriller.

Screen It!

The movie travels down a bumpy road full of plot holes and left-turn logic that will have many in the audience chuckling at the idiocy of the various characters and situations. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

Lautner isn't much of an actor and behind his face is a brain ticking away at one kilometre per hour with the repetitive long-held close-ups of his face yielding no more emotional insights than the equally long close-ups of his stomach

"Abduction" falls in the same corner of the youth market as the "Twilight" movies. Some moments and many lines feel cribbed from that series.
