Last night was date night with my husband so we did dinner and a movie. I had wanted to see Abduction so despite the bad reviews we went to see it. Well now I understand why the movie got bad ratings. It’s a shame really because Lily Collins is a fantastic actress, but even she couldn’t help this movie. This could have potentially been a good movie. The idea was there, and they had some good actors for the film, but the screenplay seemed like it was written by a five-year old. The filming was a bit nauseating with how shaky, spinny, and blurry the camera was for most of the movie. The dialogue was so horrible most of the time is was actually funny. (and not in a good way) The few actual action sequences the movie had were decent, but not enough to warrant any praise. Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins did an ok job considering what they had to work with. I think if their was better dialogue and better filming the movie would have been alright. Unfortunately it was really awful and deserves the horrible ratings. That said I absolutely love Lily Collins and I can’t wait to see her as Clary in City of Bones when that is finally made. I think she’s going to do fabulous in The Mortal Instruments movies.
