Abduction starts out in what seems like a normal American Teen High School flick, following Nathan (Taylor Lautner -Twilight
) , his friends Gilly (Denzel Whitaker -Great Debaters
) & Jake (William Peltz -Abduction) having a blast & getting drunk, what High School kids do. However in his Social studies class he is paired up with his summer love Karen (Lily Collins -Mirror Mirror[Snow White]Trivia: She is the Daughter of singer Phil Collins) , and as they research at Nathans parents home, Kevin (Jason Isaccs -The Patriot
) & Mara (Maria Bello -A History Of Violence
), they start looking at websites about missing children, and Karen stumbles across a picture of a small boy who looks really like Nathan.
As Nathan investigates further, his World is soon turned upside down as those he loves are put in danger, can he make sense of it all & manage to survive ?! one thing is for sure, he is going to have to grow up quick!
Overall after the initial slow build up i thought Abduction was an enjoyable Bubblegum for the brain Thriller, it managed to keep me guessing about who was on who's side, so it really had me fooled in places, where i started to suspect everyone. The acting talent on show is of a high calibre, a good mixture of experience with the likes of Sigourney Weaver (Alien
) , Alfred Molina (The Sorcerer's Apprentice
) , Michael Nyqvist (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
) & Jason Issacs etc.. and the youthfull talents of Lilly Collins & Denzel Whitaker, Taylor Lautner(his abs guest staring) was alright but not a patch on the others. It was reasonabley well filmed for the most part, although some of the action sequences & special affects were a bit low budget tbh and obviously so, it detracted a little, but not enough to ruin the experience.
In Conclusion, if you stick with it past the the slow build up, you will be rewarded with a decent Thriller, it's not World beating, like Lautner's so, so performance, but enjoyable to pass the time. i wont mind watching this a few more times myself. Reccomended.
