1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible!, 1 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Abduction [DVD] (DVD)
I really wish I had not bothered watching this film. The whole feel of it was very amateur. It lacked any sophistication or believability. Even the soundtrack stood out a mile: Rather than adding to the film and blending in, it made me ultra aware that I was watching a film, and an unconvincing one at that. I was expecting a fairly decent action movie but I was so wrong. The script was poor, even laughable at times, and the storyline was disappointingly dull considering what it had the potential to be. It was clumsily put together and didn't even feel like a real film. It's as though it's been put together by completely inexperienced people. The whole film felt like it was trying too hard and just completely falling flat. HUGE HUGE disappointment. Everything about this film was so poor, I can't even fully express it! Bad scripting & directing is enough to make any actor look bad, but I must admit that Taylor Lautner actually did an OK job - just a shame that the film let him down so badly!

I read a few reviews before purchasing which said that despite not being a fan of Twilight they found this film unexpectedly enjoyable. I am not a Twilight fan either (although at least those films are well made and entertaining enough), so I thought perhaps the actual film would be enjoyable, rather than just an effort to capitalise on Taylor Lautner's popularity. It was totally the latter. No real thought had gone into the weak storyline. There is nothing here for non Taylor fans.

In my opinion this film is for teenage girls only who will be distracted enough by Taylor taking his shirt off, that they won't mind how naff the actual film is. It was so rubbish that I was actually in a bad mood by the end of it and had to put a real film on in order to save my evening! I do not usually bother to write reviews but felt so annoyed at what a waste of a film this was that I felt the need to warn people. The trailer made it look like a really interesting storyline - be warned... it isn't!
