September 30, 2011
The film has turbo-charged chases and fight sequences but the script is littered with unintentionally hilarious interludes and some excruciating dialogue.

It left me wishing the scriptwriters had been kidnapped and told they would not be released until they came up with more than one original idea.

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

Sigourney Weaver? After Avatar, surely she doesn't need the cash?

September 29, 2011
A serviceable if familiar premise is executed without thrills and excitement while Lautner doesn't have the necessary edge or charisma to carry the movie.

When Taylor Lautner is the least of a movie's problems, be afraid.

Taylor Lautner gets his first solo vehicle - but the wheels come off pretty quickly thanks to a clunky script, cack-handed direction and, sadly, Lautner's inadequacy as an actor.

September 29, 2011
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.

...an almost-passable thriller that would've benefited from a much shorter running time...

Lautner will likely get more chances to shine, but this is not his finest moment.

September 28, 2011
Taylor Lautner plays characters with mysterious origins and makes them boring.

[A] sleek-looking but mechanically dodgy vehicle...

September 28, 2011
The reveal is so mind-numbingly stupid that it stops the film in its tracks and it gets progressively worse from that point onwards.

Agent Cody Banks meets post-shark jump 24, with what appears to be an 8-year-old Soviet body builder in the lead role.

There's a brief window... during which Abduction is good enough, which is obviously not the same as "good", but any port in a storm.

September 27, 2011
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.

Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins are not ready for prime time and not ready to carry a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
September 26, 2011
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.

September 25, 2011
Filled with dialogue that hits the floor like syrup on a wet sponge, and chase scenes that barely register a pulse, "Abduction" is a less than disposable action thriller; it's pre-disposable.

September 25, 2011
A blockhead espionage thriller from director-for-hire John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood).
