Movie Reviews

  • we've got the aforementioned Sigourney Weaver as a psychiatrist and/or secret agent with a bouquet of balloons
    by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com ]
  • they also can be achingly sweet and vulnerable and protective - and shirtless, when appropriate
    2 of 5 by Glenn Whipp [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the movie stops in its tracks long enough to ogle an extended smooch whose slurping seems scientifically calculated to take things to the brink of an R rating
    by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • the direction is excellent, and that's the real puzzler in this tricky little game
    2.5 of 4 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • preferable to the movie of the same name, but only if your kidnappers don't tor ture you by forcing you to watch it
    0.5 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
  • made off with the plot and replaced it with a laughably predictable PG baby spy drama riddled with flat dialogue and aimed squarely at teen girls and their wallets
    0.5 of 4 by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star ]
  • looking very much like a stranger in his own performance
    by Benjamin Mercer [Village Voice ]
  • it feels like a movie designed to ride on the back of Twilight's phenomenal success, with held noses and paycheques all around
    1 of 4 by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail ]
  • he's not a terrible actor, but if he wants a career after the Twilight fades, he'll pick better films
    Review rate : C by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • for a guy who alternately got to play crusader, hunk, and sidekick in his signature role, "Abduction'' is a stock gig, but Nyqvist makes the most of it
    1.5 of 4 by Tom Russo [Boston Globe ]
  • filled with laughable dialogue, Abduction goes nowhere
    1.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • falls in the same corner of the youth market as the "Twilight" movies
    2 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • but if you think he's hot and this is crazy, then he's here to party.
    1 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • also features a fight on a train that may have been inspired by the classic one in From Russia with Love, but it's hard to tell
    1 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • Abduction just seems silly from here through to the finale, a complicated set-piece staged at Pittsburgh's scenic PNC Park during an actual Pirates-Mets game last year
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a haggardly slapdash "Bourne Identity" knockoff, never rising above the level of basic competence. Lautner's fans should line up in droves; other demos may go missing
    by Andrew Barker [Variety ]
