Don't Even Bother Waiting For The DVD
We've heard comparisons between Taylor Lautner and Matt Damon, which is frankly an insult to the latter.
Lautner may be a staple in the action genre in years to come but right now, the comparisons are premature. His performance is stoic at times, which is a problem that permeates through the rest of the cast. None of them except Lily Colins provide a convincing performance, which says a lot because the young actress isn't any good herself.
I won't even bother typing a synopsis here because you probably won't understand the film even after the end credits start rolling. The storyline is all over the place. The directing is terrible. The camera angles confuse you on many occasions.
The movie is riddled with scenes and sequences that seem to be ripped off other well known films like Death Proof, Disturbia and maybe even the Bourne series.
I felt like the movie came across unintentionally as a satire but I assure you the movie is a serious action flick that just fails to be... serious.
I really don't know what else to say apart from "this movie sucks!"
Yes, I used a cliché line to review a movie. But Abduction doesn't merit any further analysis. How it even got shown on the big screen is beyond me.
