Holmes, best known for the TV teen drama Dawson's Creek, flounders in the role like a child in her father's overcoat.

Ultimately, it's a suspense thriller in dire need of more suspense and more thrills.
September 2, 2010
It really is almost impressive how bad this is.
April 29, 2009
A dull, pretentious, and godly dreary pseudo-thriller...
January 2, 2009
A flimsy and tedious thriller.

The film's final twist is admittedly quite effective, though it doesn't even remotely justify the interminable build-up leading into it.

Might have been titled Fatal Attraction -- The College Years.

Lacked an emotionally endearing story.

The twist ending ... becomes discernible around the midway point, but Gaghan makes up for it ...

O ritmo lento e o final previsvel (e absurdo) comprometem o filme irremediavelmente.

In the end, the film is less the cheap thriller you'd expect than it is a fairly revealing study of its two main characters - damaged-goods people whose orbits will inevitably and dangerously collide.

Abandon is a damn good movie.

Nothing is more frustrating than a movie that banks on a twist ending that it telegraphs 30 minutes before climax.

For what I suppose must be classified as a 'teen thriller,' this film has a surprising amount of substance.
January 8, 2003
Meandering and glacially paced, and often just plain dull.

[Its] failure becomes most obvious in retrospect, when the realization dawns that the most affecting, inventive, and honest moments of the film were those that hewed most closely to the original text.

Don't bother seeing Abandon. Within half an hour of sitting down, you'll want to perpetrate the nominal act on the theatre itself.
October 28, 2002
Easily the most manipulative thriller since Brian De Palma retired to a career of spectacular irrelevance. That's why it's so effective - and fiendishly satisfying.
