When I first saw the trailer, I knew by the end of the movie, the ends in no way would justify the means. I was right. Any movie with Taylor Lautner is bound to stay below a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. He is, for the most part, responsible for the rating. He just can't act. But onto the movie. Taylor Lautner is a high school wrestler who fences with his dad. They clearly went all out with making his character unique. (Rolls eyes.) His dad is played by Jason Issacs and his mom is played by Mario Bello. (The chick who helped ruin "The Mummy.") Why Jason Issacs is in this is beyond me. He's a great actor. He played the bad guy in "The Patriot" and he played the conflicted Lucius Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" series, but now, he's in a Taylor Lautner movie. For what it's worth though, Issacs did a good job in this movie, despite looking really bored playing his role. Lautner finds out he was a missing child or something and his parents aren't his parents. They die and the adventure begins. Lautner is with his girlfriend, Lily Collins, (She's cute, but her eyebrows annoy me.) and they meet up with Sigourney Weaver. She looked like she didn't want anything to do with this movie, but did it against her will. Same with Alfred
Molina. His line reading sounded really forced. Many pointless and unrealistic action scenes later, the movie ends. All in all, this movie was pointless, boring, convoluted, badly acted and poorly written. Taylor Lautner makes that same face in every scene he's in: >:( Always too much emotion. His line reading is terrible as well. If you like to be entertained watching movies, skip this.
