Abduction Review

DoBlu
19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Even when he’s not a werewolf inexplicably tearing everything off but his pants, Taylor Lautner still finds a means to be shirtless. In Abduction , a movie in which no one is actually abducted mind you, he gets drunk, waking up on a random front lawn without a shirt… because all teenage drunks shred their clothes when trashed. Were that the only thing wrong with Abduction , playing it up to an audience of drooling, texting teenagers, maybe it wouldn’t be so offensive.

Abduction Blu-ray Review

17 January 2012
  • Summary: Most kids fantasize now and then about having different parents than they actually have. Orphans and adopted kids of course are in a completely different category, since they know they have mysterious parents out there somewhere, about whom they may know absolutely nothing. That probably doesn't help stop the fantasizing and may in fact only exacerbate it.

Abduction (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
12 January 2012
  • Excerpt: John Singleton's Abduction is a lot of things, but awesome isn't one of them. Truth be told, what we've got here is nothing but a disappointing actioner ruined by an atrocious script and a solid dose of bad acting, led by none other than Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who really can't make it through an entire movie without repeatedly taking off his shirt.

Abduction

High-Def Digest
6 January 2012
  • Conclusion: 'Abduction' can be fun at times, and the film does everything it sets out to do, but in the end it spends too much time trying to be cool rather than being as tight and logical as possible. The Blu-ray's visual presentation is generally strong, but it suffers from an overall flatness and lack of detail in bright and dark areas. The audio is good in spots, like the diner sequence, but underwhelming for an action thriller mixed in 7.1.

Abduction Movie Review

24 September 2011
  • Summary: In spite of his broad shoulders and more than a little help from his friends, Taylor Lautner can't carry this movie – or probably any other one.

Cinema Blend
23 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Twilight movies are so inherently stilted and bogged down by dialogue that it's impossible to judge acting talent in them. Even legitimately gifted performers, like Dakota Fanning or Michael Sheen, can seem flat with their caked-on vampire makeup. So until now it's seemed unfair to judge Taylor Lautner, the boy wonder who broke out as werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight movies, and, much more so than his reticent co-stars, seemed happy to accept the mantle of teen...

Abduction

AV Club
23 September 2011
  • Excerpt: With the seminal 1991 message-movie Boyz N The Hood , John Singleton made a strong challenge to Spike Lee’s self-appointed title as the cinematic voice of black America . Twenty years later, Singleton has made Abduction , another story about a teenager with daddy issues, but this time, he’s firmly in work-for-hire mode.

  • Summary: John Singleton’s directorial career has veered decidedly mainstream since his work in the ‘90s, something you’d think would make him the perfect helmer for a Taylor Lautner vehicle (and "from the director of Boyz n the Hood " isn’t gonna mean much to T-Lau fans anyway). As with 2 Fast 2 Furious , he proves adept at shooting an action sequence but again struggles to inject the faint glimmer of tension or emotion that could poke through Abduction ’s double whammy of rote...

  • Conclusion: You want a teenage action star, check out Saoirse Ronan in Hanna. You like Weaver cameos, rent Cedar Rapids. You need a Taylor Lautner fix, give Sharkboy another go.
