Review: Abduction

Sep. 24, 2011by: JimmyO

PLOT: Nathan is a popular boy who loves his parents a whole bunch. One day, he happens to find his picture on a missing personís website. He calls the police and they try and connect him to the folks that want to get rid of the boy. Soon, he is on the run with his would be girlfriend and itís all one big wacky adventure.

REVIEW: Letís get this out of the way right now, ABDUCTION is bad. Sometimes it is so bad itís good bad, but mostly it is just plain bad. It is like watching a dull Lifetime movie of the week, but sadly Tori Spelling in MOTHER, MAY I SLEEP WITH DANGER? packed more thrills than this. This teen chase thriller is loaded with unbelievable plot devices, lame dialogue and yes, a leading man who just canít carry a picture.

The story revolves around a teenager named Nathan (Taylor Lautner). He is a fun loving kid who likes to sit on the front of a truck while his buddy drives real fast. Heís a rebel you see. Although a bland rebel who really doesnít do much wrong besides get drunk one night at a party (after the aforementioned truck riding incident). So dear old dad (Jason Isaacs) picks up the boy in the morning and the two have a cute little game of beat each other up. You see, mom (Maria Bello) and pops want the boy to be toughÖ and of course they have their reasons

Letís start with the script by Shawn Christensen. The whole damn storyline of all the stars falling into place so he can find his stupid picture is ridiculous. This could have been handled much better, but it wasnít, so what can you do considering the finding his ďmissing personĒ photo is ludicrous. And the convenience of having the exact shirt he was wearing so many years ago in the missing persons picture is unbelievable. The ease of finding a ride to another state with Nathanís girlfriend in tow (Lily Collins) is simply bullshit. Just ask a truck driver because we all know hitchhiking always gets you where you want to go. Here is another good one; you see something horrible happen to someone you loveÖ well you can react the exact same way when someone is embarrassing you in high school. Why? Because you can take off your shirt and reveal your abs and the girls wonít care if you are dull and expressionless.

Now the fault here as previously mentioned is not necessarily all on Taylor Lautner. The script just doesnít work and even the direction is all over the place. Yet the fact is you put Lautner up next to Maria Bello, Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina and Jason Issacs, his inadequacies are amplified. He is not an action star and his performance feels almost amateurish. He also has such a boyish face that it is near impossible to take him seriously in the more dramatic moments, or even the PG-13 love scene. When he and Collins get intimate, the theatre exploded into laughter and I am quite sure that wasnít the intended reaction.

What about John Singleton? What was it about this film that he was trying to do? It is almost a guarantee that they were hoping for a franchise of some sort. Yet Iím not sure if the TWILIGHT audience would really care for a teenage spy, and judging by the reaction at the screening, they donít seem to be all that pumped for it. This is a mess of a movie with a not so ready for leading man Lautner and a story and script that is just blatantly obvious. Abduction is just nonsense and more nonsense. There is nobody to root for, just a dumb set of circumstance for Nathan. Yet by some miracle, he always has the upper hand against a bunch of the idiot goons. Really, just donít bother with Abduction. In fact, almost anything is better than this.

Spelling Anyone?

"Soon, he is on the run with his wood be girlfriend and itís all one big wacky adventure."
"Wood" be girlfriend? I think you mean "Would be girlfriend".

BobParr, do you REALLY think that JimmyO doesn't know how to spell "would be girlfriend"?? I mean REALLY??

It's called a "typo"...look it up. It happens to the best of us.

Do you think it's possible that because we tried to get this review up asap (no preview screenings were given to press) that in his haste, he made a basic typo??

This isn't CNN.com, guys. This is JoBlo.com, a MOVIE FAN SITE! We care about our spelling and grammar, but for fuck's sakes...LIGHTEN UP a little, guys!

I'm with you, man. I'm amazed at how some people get paid to write when they can't even spell. And that's such a laughable screw up that it makes one wonder whether or not it was done on purpose.

I for one feel bad for Taylor Launter...

maybe with a proper acting coach and better movie choices he might be taken as a serious actor one day...but if he keeps making movie choices like this...he'll be forgotten quicker than u can say Christian Slater....

My point was Slater actually made GOOD choices in his early film career, unlike Lautner....he is nt doing anything now because after 30 or so...his looks and lifestyle pretty much destoyed his career. As in most actors who peak young.

and minus Heathers and True Romance, has the mainstream audience have heard of any other leading role he has been in...and to include Mobsters ( which got a worse reviews than this film and is a pretty shitty movie) in that list proves my point even more....what is Christian doing now: failed tv shows. thats the road Taylor is goin if he doesnt wise up.

my dear snoopmish, you're comparing a 3 films career (I'm counting the Twilight franchise as one, the 2 others being Abduction and Sharkgirl and the Lavakid) to a more than 20 years' one !

Um, how does Twilight & Abduction equal Heathers, Pump Up The Volume, Star Trek 6, True Romance, Interview with the Vampire, Mobsters, Murder in the First, hell even Robin Hood & Broken Arrow in making bad choices in your film career?

It actually hurts me physically that this movie attracted any stars of any kind whether it's in front or behind the camera. Let this be proof to all studios that this idiot will never have a career beyond Twilight.

...who actually thinks that the audience would take him seriously in a dramatic role. Scratch that, a serious role of any kind.
It currently sits at 4% on RT and even the two fresh reviews cut the movie a new one. This could be one of the worst films ever made.

It makes me really happy on the inside that this movie turned out terrible. The fact that the trailers called him the next action hero makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

And since the correction was made then JimmyO took the constructive criticism.

2) I am not a professional writer representing a website so if I make a mistake...oh well.
Now you can all go try to find a girlfriend.

hmmmm

not to denounce the writer's opinion, because he is allowed to have it. given its all subjective, however i would not rate this movie as low as the writer has. i will admit the movie isn't gonna light up and box office. but the simple fact is the movie is not bad, it is merely a decent flick, like most of hollywood, the story is a little fresher than were used to, lautner's part had the potential to be really good the problem, is the character is written and directed badly. the character itself

the reason i know this movie only reaches decent is because i sat through it, there have only been a few films that have been bad enough to have me walk out.
what i thought was funny; during watching the film it occured to me why his acting prowless is hidden, its more because of the nose of taylor, its to wide and large in proportion to the reast of his face.
What hurts the film is it takes too long to get to the interesting point of the story, about 40 minutes in we finally get to the action, and the action is damn decent nothing huge, again that is likely the fault of the choreographer, because there are moments captured that showed that they were wo afraid to really try things.
all in all a solid effort with only decent pay off not bad, but not great, it stays in the bulk bin of hollywood for me with a score of 3/5

I was kinda hoping it was good for Lily Collins sake. I could see why she would do this, it's gonna get her face (eyebrows!?) out to a big audience particularly tween girls. But damnnnn a 1/10 she should have just not done anything for a while. Oh yeah and fuck Taylor Lautner...

Wait....

I actually got downvoted for suggesting this kid get a acting coach and make actual good choices? I know there's hate for the Twilight crew ( and well deserved) but if the kid actually works to become a decent actor, how is that a bad thing? Hell even Brad Pitt got into bad movies before becoming the star he is. I'm not saying give the kid a chance but miracles have happened...even in hollywood.

To mcKracken: I'd just like to correct something. Taylor Lautner did not get his start doing Twilight. He's been around for a few years now. Twilight was just his breakout role, and the only reason he's been considered for action movies is cuz Chris Weitz had him bulk up for New Moon, so naturally, he's gotta go show off his abs. give the kid a dumb sports movie instead of an action thriller, that's what most actors his age do.

Saw this at a pre-screening and thought it was mind numbingly boring. The action was dull, Lautner (and sadly Collins) were uninteresting. Even the major starts supporting Lautner seemed to be phoning in performances to get a paycheck. Yet, I got a clue that this would be bad when the red carpet event the audience was subjected to had interviews with producers and the like discussing how they set this up as a vehicle for Lautner to jump into a lead role. It's really too bad he's not a better

Lautner could make an Oscar worthy job in the best movie of all time and you'd still say it's shit !
OK, he didn't do god acting in this movie, and if he was alone I'd say it's his fault, but NO ONE could act in this movie from Weaver to Isaac and Dermot Mulroney (uncredited, but still)... NO ONE, so it's the director's fault, and the screenwriter if the story is dull. Give the kid a chance to become a better actor, just like some of us give you a chance to become open minded !

And the kid is credible in action scenes (thanks to his martial art background).

I cant believe Taylor was given the chance to star in his own movie. Coming fresh out of the Twlight series..he has no proven acting talent, he is too baby faced (cant be taken seriously), etc.
Hopefully Hollywood will realize this kid isnt ready yet for big movie roles.

Ahhh the future of America.

JoBlo is right. I found your comments and especially JaxSmrkngRevnj's, kind of dick moves, especially Jax. Maybe he has a shit job and he gets crap all the time and that is how he lashes out, fuck if I know.

Don't try to back-track now. You were an ass in your original posting, just own up to it and move on.

Unfortunately you've decided that INSULTING other visitors to the site is the better way to go, so you're obviously BANNED now, because you can't even follow our basic rules here.
