My best friend came to town and we decided to finally go and see Abduction. You guys know I had to right? I mean it’s full of Jacob Black loveliness, so I really had no other choice. And while this is not the most creative or earth-shattering movie, I did love it.
The opening scene was a bold proclamation of the type of person Nathan is. A kid who takes risks and loves to have fun with his friends. He’s also brooding (how do I love the brooders), and working to maintain his rage. As the story unfolds, Nathan begins to find inconsistencies regarding his childhood, and is haunted by dreams he can’t explain.
I have to say I was drawn in from the very beginning and really fell deeper into the story once Nathan realized his parents weren’t telling him the complete truth. What follows is some frenzied running, awesome fights, and a heart warming romance amongst the chaos. Lily Collins was adorable and perfect to play Nathan’s love interest. The action had my pulse pumping and I longed for Nathan to uncover the truth of everything.
Overall the movie was engaging and fast paced. If you enjoy action films with hot male lead, a little mystery, and a cute romance, this is the film for you.
