More Info:
  • Alison Willmore

    As Nathan, the teenage hero of Abduction, Lautner shows he's handy with stunts, many of which he clearly and impressively performs himself, and good with a fight scene. But when it comes to exchanges of dialogue, displays of emotion or just standing around, he's stiff and manifestly uncomfortable.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    Director John Singleton offers bits of suspense, but Abduction is less a movie than a piece of engineering, a glumly ludicrous cat-and-mouse blowout designed to win Lautner male fans along with his girl demo.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Abduction puts Lautner in motion and never goes very far wrong as long as he remains in motion.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Odds are John Singleton doesn't know he's made one of the funniest films of the year.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Aside from such dutiful fan service, the film is a haggardly slapdash "Bourne Identity" knockoff, never rising above the level of basic competence.

  • Nathan Rabin

    Singleton once radiated ambition and vision. These days, he seems to be aiming for mediocrity at best. Even by those extraordinarily lenient standards, the inessential, perfunctory Abduction falls short

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Glenn Whipp

    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."

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Singleton's action thriller has a decent sense of propulsion but, after a faintly intriguing start, the convoluted plot mechanics overwhelm everything else, making you feel you're watching a detailed blueprint for a movie, and an increasingly far-fetched one in the bargain.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Filled with laughable dialogue, Abduction goes nowhere.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Molina and Weaver, who, most of the time, perform brilliantly, move through Abduction as if on autopilot.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Benjamin Mercer

    A blockhead espionage thriller from director-for-hire John Singleton.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Perhaps the only way to approach Abduction that will not result in a 105-minute boredom-induced coma is to think of it as a comedy, preferably with a drinking game attached. There are laughs to be had, although none of them are intentional.

  • Rene Rodriguez

    Abduction is a crass and lowbrow attempt to cash in on a young actor's heat - an exploitation picture where the person being taken advantage of is too young to notice.

  • Liam Lacey

    Taylor Lautner puts the abs in Abduction, but not much else.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    A ridiculously cheesy confection filled with unthrilling thrills, bored-looking adults and a comically overstuffed backstory.

  • Keith Uhlich

    Twi-Hards shall attend en masse. Adults shall roll their eyes. And on our human comedy shall go.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    A sloppy, exploitative act of star worship created (if that's the right word for cynical hackwork) around Mr. Lautner, the pouty 19-year-old heartthrob of the "Twilight" franchise.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Actual abduction may be preferable to the movie of the same name, but only if your kidnappers don't torture you by forcing you to watch it.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Todd Gilchrist

    The new film Abduction has a lot of problems, but the biggest is the fact that no one gets abducted. Ever.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A fourth-rate Hollywood thriller that bungles a lot of thievery from better movies, is entirely bereft of suspense or excitement and features a leading man who absolutely, positively cannot act.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Ronnie Scheib

    Woefully amateurish psychological thriller.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    The script is often ludicrous (gratuitous digs at feminism; muddled commentary on war and the military), the sets look like sets, and the acting-aside from Helsham and Plunkett-doesn't even rise to the level of student films.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Subscribing to the philosophy that creepy equals interesting, the film contains barely a moment that isn't flat-footed, ludicrous or both.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    A cringingly awkward tale of sexual predation and female lunacy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    If Ed Wood had directed "The Silence of the Lambs," it might have been as unintentionally hilarious as the goofball would-be thriller The Abduction of Zack Butterfield.
