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.Read more ›
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.
In addition to Sigourney Weaver, they also got Alfred Molina for their suspicious FBI/CIA/Whatever Agent, and the talented Maria Bello and Jason Isaacs as Nathan's parents; all of which seems to suggest that "Abduction" was their primary method of casting. ...Because, again, at no point in the movie is anyone abducted. Anyhow, for an ultimately pretty by-the-numbers teen thriller, it makes enough bizarre decisions and its overblown drama fits so poorly on its young stars and PG-13 target, it manages to be consistently entertaining as a bad movie.
