Abduction movie review

So I’ve wanted to see this movie for a while now, but what stopped me was the bad reviews and comments people were making about it after it came out.  I’m not one that tends to listen to that type of stuff, but it definitely make me not rush to see it.  However it was on tv not too long ago, so I thought I’d check it out!

It stars Taylor Lautner playing a high school boy (which is pretty believable) whose secret past is about to be uncovered.  What’s not believable is how grown up he acts in various situations.  We do see, what he thinks to be, his father teaching him how to fight at the beginning of the movie.  However these movies are what grown men tend to do in movies…not so much high school boys.  Anyways, after Taylor’s character, Nathan, uncovers a lie after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website that affects his entire life, he’s bound to discover the truth.  The lie?  Pretty much every person that has been in his life, except his school friends, haven’t exactly been honest with him: his parents, a devoted family friend (Sigourney Weaver), etc.; therefore Nathan’s hunt for the facts pits him against ruthless assassins and questionable allies.  Crazy, yes?  LOL  There’s a lot of action scenes, some cute and vulnerable scenes, but I think the script could have used some work.

I do enjoy Taylor’s acting from time to time, however various part of this movie didn’t make much sense.  It went pretty fast and there’s a lot of gaps in the storyline.  I think if you have some free time and this movie is on, it’s probably something to watch once…but I just wish that it was a little more realistic.
