Don't get why everyone is trashing this movie.. this is a great movie! (by gallaghergirl09)
I don't get what people are so upset about from this movie. I saw this movie with my best friend who is a major Taylor Lautner fan, and it was HER idea to go see it and I really enjoyed it!The plot of a boy finding his own picture on a missing kids website was captivating. But, I will agree that it moved a little too fast in the beginning when the people in the suits came, and there was a bomb in the oven... But don't leave just because of that scene! It's never as scary as it is there...A few things bother me, like how Koslo had all this technology that could never exist in the <more>
real world probably And there were some times when the dialogue was lacking in something, like during Nathan's 911 call, and other times.And, sure, there are things they don't explain like the gun under the chair in the stadium, or Karyn setting herself free, but you are supposed to put two-and-two together! This is also a mystery, after all!Remember how Nathan asked Zeke is he had done "what I asked"? I think that was putting the gun under the chair... And I'm pretty sure that Karyn somehow cut herself free with the glass she knocked over.I feel like this movie was really good! But, the ending definitely calls for a sequel. What is up with Martin? Why is he in hiding, since he technically had the authority to do what he did? Why doesn't he at least say hi to his son in person?
***Good film for all family*** (by michelle_slaymaker)
Really good film that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Some excellent stunt work AND SOME COMICAL BITS TOO : Not just a girlie film for girls to drool over Taylor, my 42 year old fiancé loved this film too and we are going again. Definitely RECOMMEND : Great film for all the family. Great for Taylor fans Great for action film fans Great for young guys too Lily Collins and other beautiful girls : This film has some good twists and turns! Trying not to say too much and give away the plot because I hate it when people do that!!! ENJOY!!! PLOT: About a teenager that finds a photo of <more>
himself as a baby on a missing persons website and he needs to find out the truth about his life, has it all been a lie???????????
OK, so I saw the 3.6 score on IMDb and was worried. My eleven year old wanted to see the movie so I went anyways. Do not be fooled by the reviews. I don't know if the reviewers are Twilight haters or just movie snobs, but it was a good movie. It is fast paced, action packed, and the plot is good. Now this movie doesn't have any surprise twist or shocking moments. It's a movie for tweens and teens. Taylor did a very good job in his parent. I think his co star his girlfriend was a miscast, but she did a fair job. The movie is basically about a 17 year old senior in high school <more>
who finds a picture of him on a missing person's website. Unbeknownest to him, he isn't a missing person, but is being held in a sort of protection house by the CIA. I won't spoil the rest of the movie.But it was a good movie.
I do not want to give any spoilers so I wont go into any specific details in the movie.... I took my daughter to see this movie because she is a huge Taylor Lautner fan. I have to say that I enjoyed the movie and thought it was a great storyline. It was nice seeing Taylor Lautner playing a different character. Lilly Collins did a great job as well. It brings awareness to missing persons websites and that is an important thing!It think the actors, directors and everyone involved in the movie did a good job.It is a great movie to get out and see!
I thought it was GREAT for a first time!!!! (by nikkiharvey1989)
First off, let me say that I have never been a fan the critics. They go in writing a movie, based off of how well they like a actor in my opinion. they will smash some of the most amazing movies, and praise some the dumbest ones known to man. This movie, is no exception. Critics despise Twilight films and anyone associated with Twilight so, it's only natural that they bash this movie. It's a good thing that these actors aren't in it for the acceptance or praise from critics. To me, the people are the real critics. OK, no this movie is not an Oscar worthy movie but it is good for <more>
it being Taylor's first movie to carry by himself. One of my favorite scenes in this movie is when he beating the guy in the house that murdered his "parents". the emotion and intensity that he shows bc of what this man has done. not to mention he just found out not too long ago that his parents weren't his. but scenes like that and commitment like Taylor is what is going to make him an exceptional actor in the future. So, to me this movie was GREAT!!! I will certainly be getting this on DVD when it comes out and recommending it. The 9 stars are bc I don't understand how Karen Lily Collins , got free in that one scene so it drives me mad!!! but other than that great supporting cast, and a great job for your first time Taylor!!!
i love that they stared Taylor for the role of Nathan. I don't know what people are talking about, but the acting was great! A lot of the stunts were done by Taylor himself like the first scene where Taylor is on the hood of the truck. It was very interesting and I liked how they showed how dangerous the internet can be. The movie actually shows kids that the internet isn't always fun and games, but it can be used by other people to track you and it can be very dangerous. overall i'd give it a nearly perfect mark, i found only 1 thing that i didn't like about it, and that was <more>
the kissing scene on the train. i did not like that part. It is too sudden and in-depth for the audience. The movie would have been a lot better if they would have kept that to a minimum, or better yet, taken it out all together.
Why Do People Hate This Movie So Much..?? (by Allen-Uncle-Mont-Williams)
This film is a prime example to why certain actors are very underrated in Hollywood....I call it "The Luke Skywalker Syndrome"....One hit franchise that wrecks a young actor's career before it can really get started....The Twilight franchise....Although successful....Isn't a franchise that is critically acclaimed or well liked by fans other than young people with out-of-control hormones....And because of this...Films like Abduction is either overlooked or totally panned by fans...Sitting down to watch this film with Twilight in mind is going to ensure that viewers will NOT <more>
have a good time....Which is why wonderful movies like "Welcome To The Rileys" and "The Runaways" both starring Kristen Stewart didn't get nearly enough attention....Now is this particular film original..??...No, it's not....I have seen the "My picture on the milk carton" routine used more than once....But is Abduction a fun movie..??...Yes it is...Abduction is a popcorn movie....It's meant to simply allow the audience to have a good time....If people go into this movie expecting Oscar-like performances and a beautifully written storyline...Then those people are setting themselves up for a big let down...But why put yourself through that when all that needs to be done is to simply sit back and enjoy the ride....And that's all there is too it...
My wife and I recently went to the RAVE theater and watched "Abduction". Don't really understand why there are so many negative reviews on this movie. The movie did start out a little slow, but once it got going, it held our attention till the very end. A lot of people say this movie is a cheap made for TV thriller at best, but I disagree. Plenty of drama, plenty of action, an interesting storyline made this movie worthwhile. Granted we went to the matinée and paid $14 to see this movie, but we still thought we got our money's worth. I felt the acting was good and pretty <more>
much spot on during most the movie. Yes, there may be some resemblance to the Bourne movies, but just enjoy Abduction for what it is, a solid thriller/action flick that was a lot of fun to watch. I will give it a solid 8 out of 10 stars. As a matter of fact when it hits BluRay, I will watch it again with my two daughters and their families.
Keep your shirt on Taylor, you've got a great career ahead (by pannpost)
I have no idea why this movie is so panned. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've never particularly taken to either Lautner or Lily Collins to date, but I found them both personable in this. I wish Directors would let Lautner keep his clothes on though. We're not all 13 year old "Team Jacob" ninnies you know, we can actually enjoy a well muscled man with his clothes on! Imagination people, it works wonders. Anyway, about the movie. The premise is interesting, and I feel, fairly well carried out although I would have liked the movie to go another 15 or so minutes to really build the <more>
suspense more, I blame sloppy Direction for that. The actors all acquitted themselves well, but I'm getting a little weary at Mario Bello turning up all over the place as everyone's mother. I've never forgiven her for her painful portrayal of Evie O'Connell in Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, her accent was like fingernails down a blackboard - that was a criminal piece of miscasting. Moving along, I think any problems with this movie lay completely in the lap of the direction-less Director and Writers who should have kept the script tighter. I've read other reviews that said there wasn't enough action, I disagree. There was plenty of action, there was just more time spent on inconsequential's than background to the story. I gave it 8 stars which is generous, normally I would have give a movie of this quality a 7, but it needs a boost from the 3 stars it's currently sitting on. I actually think the cause of the resistance is in no small part because Taylor Lautner is in it. And not because he isn't any good, it's the Twi-cringe factor.... I'll be very pleased when the whole Twilight franchise is over and buried so we can all forget it and judge the actors and their future roles on their own merits. It was fun at first, but now it's just old. If Taylor Lautner can keep getting parts like this and do them as well as he did this one those kicks were impressive I'm sure he'll be making movies into his 30s at least. If only he were taller! As for Lily Collins, I'm now looking forward to seeing her in Mortal Instruments, I just hope someone does something about those ghastly thick eyebrows of hers - they're disturbing, and worse than that, distracting.
