Abduction

Abduction Release Date: September 23, 2011

Twilight’s overrated Taylor Lautner stars as a kid who is raised by ‘parents’ who had kidnapped him as a toddler.

For as long as he can remember, Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) has had the uneasy feeling that he’s living someone else’s life. When he stumbles upon an image of himself as a little boy on a missing persons website, all of Nathan’s darkest fears come true: he realizes his parents are not his own and his life is a lie, carefully fabricated to hide something more mysterious and dangerous than he could have ever imagined. Just as he begins to piece together his true identity, Nathan is targeted by a team of trained killers, forcing him on the run with the only person he can trust, his neighbor, Karen (Lily Collins). Every second counts as Nathan and Karen race to evade an army of assassins and federal operatives. But as his opponents close in, Nathan realizes that the only way he’ll survive; and solve the mystery of his elusive biological father; is to stop running and take matters into his own hands.

Abduction, one of the worst reviewed movies (and worst movies, really), in history, (it has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes), is new in theaters. However, the studio behind it, Lionsgate, especially one of its execs, Joe Drake, a truly incompetent moron, has this to say about the laughable Taylor Lautner, who is no more believable as an action star than Miley Cyrus would be: “When you watch Taylor, he’s like a young Tom Cruise. I know that Taylor and Lionsgate would both like to see this become a big franchise,” he said. “You know, we think it’s our Bourne (Ultimatum series).”He can think all he wants, and may want to rethink his comments from last week, to Wild About Movies, which saw Abduction at CinemaCon earlier this year (in March) at which everyone, more than 1000 people, in the audience laughed hysterically at the site of Taylor Lautner in the inappropriate role, and horrible movie. We have never given a movie a DOUBLE F. Abduction is the first, and hopefully last. And received the honor because anyone in their right mind would never have cast Taylor Lautner in the role, let alone made the movie.
