News & Interviews for Abduction
Critic Reviews for Abduction
While the ultra-banal dialogue draws the occasional titter, the action scenes are tame and it's rife with plot holes that you could navigate a burning blimp through.
The movie is a more objective opportunity to assess Lautner's potential as a general-purpose action hero once his emo-goth run wraps. You might not want to go betting on that one.
A blockhead espionage thriller from director-for-hire John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood).
Perhaps the only way to approach Abduction that will not result in a 105-minute boredom-induced coma is to think of it as a comedy, preferably with a drinking game attached.
Singleton once radiated ambition and vision. These days, he seems to be aiming for mediocrity at best. Even by those extraordinarily lenient standards, the inessential, perfunctory Abduction falls short.
Sadly, it's impossible to fake the faintest enthusiasm for this picture, which is a fourth-rate Hollywood thriller that bungles a lot of thievery from better movies.
Audience Reviews for Abduction
May not be the stupidest movie I ever saw, but got to be coming close. No wonder Taylor does not seem to get decent roles! (By the way, I am not a fan, but he is not *that* bad as an actor). This is just a crappy movie with a silly plot.
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 nothing parts and Alfred Molina seems as bored as you will be.
Some interesting, Hitchcockian twists and turns but overall the acting and less than perfect action sequences make it difficult to watch.
