I just saw Abduction starring Taylor Lautner and it was a lot better than I thought it would be. It’s a nice little twist on the spy thriller. I don’t want to give away the plot for those who might want to check it out so I’ll just say that the action was pretty good. Unbelievable to be sure, but not terribly overdone. The acting was about what you’d expect (meaning it wasn’t great but it wasn’t horrible either). I liked the overall concept more than anything, which was that a kid finds out that his parents aren’t really his parents but when he learns the truth it’s nothing like the viewer would expect it to be.
And speaking of Lautner, I’ve recently learned that he’s from the Christian book publishing capital of the world—Grand Rapids, Michigan (home to Zondervan, Eerdmans, Baker, and Kregel). I wonder if he grew up Dutch Reformed?
