Taylor Lautner may be best known as Twilight's resident wolf boy, but he's stepping into the spotlight as a leading man in Abduction. Lautner plays Nathan, a high schooler who feels "different" despite his heartthrobby looks (which are only enhanced by his motorbike and sunglasses), position on the wrestling team, and typical weekends spent drinking with his peers. After receiving a tip-off from a friend (Lily Collins), Nathan recognises himself on a missing persons website and realizes that his whole life has been a lie. What starts out as a teen movie quickly turns into an high-speed chase, packed with explosions, make-out sessions, and martial arts prowess from Taylor.
The film seems to be going for a Disturbia-esque vibe, as Nathan's struggles to solve a mystery as the people he loves are under attack. Taylor may be game to do his own stunts, but I still might need some convincing on his acting skills for the emotional scenes. Still, it's pretty slick for a high school movie.
