Abduction Reviews

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.

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.

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.

Lautner's fun to watch, but the movie still wears thin, brought low by a useless and insufferable female lead and a plot that begins as cheerfully nonsensical and gradually grows into idiocy.

Abduction needs two different reviews. For the Lautner fans, this is so the film you've been waiting for. For non-fans, it's full of holes, impossibilities and unintentionally hilarious dialog written by a sixth grader that doesn't get out much.

This teen chase thriller is loaded with unbelievable plot devices, lame dialogue and yes, a leading man who just can't carry a picture.

September 24, 2011
. . .a film containing both the dramatic depth and shelf life of an old issue of "Tiger Beat."
September 23, 2011
This may not keep Team Jacob from sharpening its silver bullets, but I went into "Abduction" with no preconceived notions about Taylor Lautner. I wasn't the only blank slate in the theater. I just wasn't the one feebly trying to carry this movie.

It's entirely forgettable, like Lautner will be once these last Twilight films work their way through Hollywood's lower intestines.

The best unintentional comedy of the year.

Underwhelming action thriller has deaths, violence.

September 23, 2011
The movie travels down a bumpy road full of plot holes and left-turn logic that will have many in the audience chuckling at the idiocy of the various characters and situations. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

The script, direction, and pretty much everything else feels like Jack Bauer, 24: The Teen Years.

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.

September 23, 2011
Furious but sadly silly...visually a slick piece of work [but] so astonishingly stupid in storytelling terms that by the end you'll be suppressing chuckles over its inanity.

September 23, 2011
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.

If Abercrombie and Fitch made movies, they would look something like Abduction
