Taylor Lautner’s ‘Abduction': What the Moviegoers Are Saying
Moviegoers got their first look at Taylor Lautner as a solo leading man in Abduction on Friday night.
In the Lionsgate action-thriller, the Twilight star plays a teenager who finds out he was kidnapped as a child after his picture shows up on a missing-persons website. Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver, Jason Isaacs and Maria Bello also star.
Critics haven’t been kind to the movie. The Hollywood Reporter's chief film critic Todd McCarthy writes that Lautner "holds his own" with the veteran cast, but the “increasingly far-fetched” film "lets [him] down." Still others were less impressed with Lautner’s acting and called the dialogue unintentionally hilarious.
But what are the moviegoers saying about the film? Several who saw the movie took to Twitter to share their reactions, which seem to be mixed so far.
Among those who enjoyed the film:
I'm still thinking about #abduction sp glad I went to see it, once #teamjacob always ;)

Watching "abduction" now. Its actually an alright movie. Even though i woulda prefered to watch "horrible bosses".
Among those who were underwhelmed:
Too bad abduction was horrible. Laughed the whole time.
Abduction was so predictable I was speaking the lines along with the actors.
Still others apparently had no interest in seeing the movie at all:
cant wait to see abduction. oh wait.. im a man. yeah im not gonna see abduction.
Shadow And Act
Early weekend box office... #1 MONEYBALL, #2 LION KING, #3 DOLPHIN TALE, #4 ABDUCTION << hopefully that kills the "franchise" idea.
Abduction looks like it should be called "Fisher Price My First Action Thriller" for ages 2 to 6.
The OTHER Calliope
Not surprised with the Abduction reviews at. all. Geez! The trailers were painful enough to watch and those are only 2min. long!
