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 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.
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)
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.
