The Results Are In: Abduction, Starring Taylor Lautner, is Not a Good Movie


"Actual abduction may be preferable to the movie of the same name."

--Kyle Smith, New York Post

"...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."

--Stephen Holden, New York Times

"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."

--James Berardinelli, ReelViews

"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,

"At not a single point in this movie is anyone abducted."

--Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire

"You look at the screen mainly because it beats staring at the auditorium walls."

--Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing

"When Taylor Lautner is the least of a movie's problems, be afraid."

--Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph

"Abduction is a brilliant action/thriller spoof that had me laughing from start to finish. Unfortunately, it is supposed to be an action/thriller."

--Tim Martain, The Mercury

"A soulless and incompetent action/thriller not even a veteran lead actor could save, let alone Taylor Lautner."

--Rotten Tomatoes

"...laughable ..."

--Claudia Puig, USA Today
