This movie was fun from start to finish. I actually watched it twice in the same weekend, and as I go to see maybe one or two movies a year in the theater, that's saying something. There is a sort of Bourne Identity meets High School thing going on, which allowed for some brilliant action sequences and characters with much more warmth and levity than the Bourne series has. Is it realistic? No. Are there inaccuracies? Probably, not that I noticed. But I did think the plot held together very well and who goes to action adventure movies for lessons on how the world actually operates? Nathan was a fairly complex character - one who at times, particularly the beginning, I didn't like that much. I appreciated both the script and Lautner's ability to have the character grow in what seemed like feasible (given that it's a) a movie and b) all this crazy stuff is going on) and meaningful ways through the course of this adventure. He really started out as a spoiled rich kid and ended up as a competent, trustworthy and loving man which is quite a transition. I thought the love story was well played. I didn't get the impression that it was the greatest love of all time, but they're in high school for Pete's sake! And outside of Forks, most people don't find that sort of connection by the time they're 18.

I do really adore Taylor Lautner. He is beautiful and amazing to watch in action sequences. I think this sort of role suits him better than the Twilight Saga (not that I'm not a huge fan - I am!!) in that it's not quite so melodramatic. That said, given that the premise of this movie is that he finds out the people who have called themselves his parents really aren't and there are lies and secrets right and left, there is a lot of drama and Lautner pulled it off beautifully.

I chose this to be entertained on a night when there wasn't anything good on TV. This fit the bill. I don't care what others say, I enjoyed it!

Horribly written and/or horrible execution...take your pick. The scenes were to cut up and fragmented and the whole movie seemed rushed. The acting was emotionless and forced from every actor in this film. I believe a robot could have shown better emotions. The only part that was convincing was the drunk party at the neighbors house.

Then they tried to make it look like Nathan (Taylor Lautner) was crying. A high school production team could have done better on his fake tear effects (and probably the whole film for that matter.) Heck you could have easily edited in the effects with any entry level video editing program and it would have looked better.

According to Wikipedia the budget was $35million. I honestly don't know what they spent the money on because you could have rented all the cars in this movie, bought some cheap pyrotechnics, editing software, tickets to the game and train ticket, hell even bought the cameras and other tech... still not even get close to $35mil and could have made this film with money to spare. Ok sure you need a good stunt team and they did hire some A list or former A list actors... but to abuse their talent in this film is just not right.

I honestly don't know how this made it to the theaters other the fact that Taylor Lautner was in it so perhaps they were targeting the teenage girl crowd and getting some of the Twilight fans to watch. Even then I would be insulted if I saw this in the theater and was part of that demographic. This should have gone straight to DVD/BlueRay or Netflix.

I received this movie as a gift from my mom (who loves Taylor Lautner---GROSS!). So, I went into this movie with low expectations. There were some really cheesy parts, but there were also some good parts. The action was good and there when it needed to be. It was good to see Taylor Lautner in something other than Twilight and the acting was ok(for a young pup), as was the acting for the others. But the acting wasn't bad enough to make me not want to keep watching. The story line is what caught my attention. I won't go into details because I don't want to ruin it for anyone looking to get it, but the plot is very intriguing and keeps you wanting to watch to find out more. Overall, this was a fairly decent movie. This is a movie that is great to see it a first time, but I will probably never watch it again (at least not for a while).

I'm not sure why, but up until I saw this movie I had the idea that Taylor Lautner was a fairly good actor. Umm, not so much. His skill set consists mainly of looking good and sulking/pouting. Sadly enough, his was one of the better performances here -- and it stunk. Lily Collins, the female lead, was even worse.

Speaking of Ms. Collins, she and Lautner had absolutely zilch for chemistry. The kissing/panting/hugging scenes were cringe-worthy, they were so bad. The relationships between the other actors and actresses were only slightly more believable. And I do mean slightly. The story was excessively slow and boring. Oh, and, did I mention that the one black kid in the picture is also a criminal who forges ID cards?

So, what, exactly happens in this yawn fest? (spoilers ahead -- do yourself a favor, and read this and skip the film) A kid is raised by "foster" parent/agents, after his mother is murdered and while his CIA father continues his work as a CIA agent. When he stumbles across a fake "missing persons" site with his picture on it, a host of baddies end up on his trail -- and the wooden hero and his tedious lady fair must sort the rogue agents from the good guys, and find a way to thwart the villain. Of course, they do, and the bad guys all get what they deserve. The viewer, on the other hand, is left with a sort of sick feeling in the pit of her stomach as she wonders, "How in heaven's name could I not have something better to do than watch that?"

1/5 stars. This one is a perfect combination of "bad" that makes for an incredible stinker.
