Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [Lautner's] not a terrible actor, but if he wants a career after the Twilight fades, he'll pick better films. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 23, 2011

Rotten: "Abduction" is just the third movie John Singleton has directed in the past decade, and it contains neither the passion nor the competence of his two previous genre efforts - "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "Four Brothers." – Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times, Sep 23, 2011

Rotten: Sadly, it's impossible to fake the faintest enthusiasm for this picture, which is a fourth-rate Hollywood thriller that bungles a lot of thievery from better movies. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Sep 23, 2011

Rotten: A blockhead espionage thriller from director-for-hire John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood). – Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice, Sep 25, 2011

Customer Reviews


Take a good-looking young adult actor from a popular franchise with no redeemable acting skills whatsoever, pair him with a director known for his hit-or-miss films and a cast of supporting characters with varying degrees of notability, and make him the star of a teen-targeted action-thriller with a completely unoriginal premise. And what do you get? A blatantly incompetent, utterly soulless, and unintentionally hilarious stinker of a movie filled with atrocious acting, bland dialogue, and too many plot holes to count. Unless you're the kind of moviegoer who gets a kick out of watching the worst films ever made, avoid "Abduction" at all costs. I suppose now would be the best time for Taylor Lautner to prepare his inevitable Razzie speech.


I don't care what any of you people say about this movie. The actors in this movie have amazing talent! I would like to see you guys do these amazing action scenes. Breaking Dawn was amazing but in the movie Abduction it really brings out the talent in Taylor! I an definitely pre-ordering this!

I Don't Know....

This movie looks really good, but kind of typical. Taylor Lautner is INCREDIBLY good looking, which might be why he seems like such a good actor. He is pretty good, but I just don't believe him whenever he delivers lines..... This might be good, but we'll have to see.
