It is an entertaining thriller that lets Lautner show he looks good as a young action hero, and as such, it accomplishes its mission.

Astute viewers will find themselves unhappily wondering what the point is of hiring great, experienced actors like Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, Alfred Molina and Jason Isaacs, only to then award them such a diminutive screen time.

Unfortunately, there are many, many more reasons to skip it, the overriding reason being the leading man, Taylor Lautner-a hunky Neanderthal with the acting range of a dial tone.

A film that's not only brain-dead, but also treats the audience as if it's equally as stupid. It shows as much contempt for its characters as it does for its viewers.

Abduction does little for Twilight's Taylor Lautner as he becomes a fish-out-of-water in this Bourne Identity-mirroring movie.
June 22, 2013
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.
January 29, 2012
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.

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.
November 11, 2011
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.
October 18, 2011
The holes in the film's twist-filled story are often so big you could almost squeeze Lautner's sex appeal through them.
October 15, 2011
At not a single point in this movie is anyone abducted.
October 15, 2011
This uneven thriller alternates between fast-paced action and confusing plot situations, but Taylor Lautner takes his shirt off again to please his fans.

... more twists and holes than a bad mountain road ...

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