Abduction Blu-ray Review. Collins provides ample support, as does Michael Nyqvist, heretofore best known for his starring role in the Millennium trilogy, and with impeccable picture and audio quality on offer as well as a slew of worthwhile bonus material, the Blu-ray release of Abduction is one definitely worth checking out.

Abduction

‘Suddenly everyone around me is dying!’ 

While working on a school assignment with his comely chum Karen (Lily Collins, Priest), Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) is shocked to discover what appears to be his childhood photograph on a missing person’s website.  After utilising the convenient and startlingly accurate age-progression technology on the website, Karen and Nathan discover that he is in fact the missing child, and that his ‘parents’ might have a bit of explaining to do.   

Before any heartfelt discussions of ancestry can take place, however, two agents show up on the scene, determined to eradicate Nathan and bury his secret along with him.  Turns out the website was run by a Serbian terrorist and that Nathan should probably have conferred with his folks before making contact with the nefarious webmaster.  The goons kill Ma and Pa Harper but thankfully for his legion of adoring fans the rippling Lautner makes his escape.  With the CIA and the sinister Serbs hot on his tail, he must try and evade capture long enough to discover the explosive secrets of his past, work out why so many people want him dead, and possibly hook up with the stunning Karen in the process. 

Abduction could perhaps most aptly be described as a big budget popcorn movie with more brawn than brains, but it still manages to deliver the goods, which in this case means plenty of high octane car chases, gargantuan explosions, guns, cleavage and pithy one-liners.  No complaints here.  It still veers more to the Transporter than Bourne Identity end of the action spectrum, but nonetheless proves a worthy star vehicle for its wildly popular teen lead.  Collins provides ample support, as does Michael Nyqvist, heretofore best known for his starring role in the Millennium trilogy, and with impeccable picture and audio quality on offer as well as a slew of worthwhile bonus material, the Blu-ray release of Abduction is one definitely worth checking out.
