Laura and I watched Abduction last evening. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Teen Nathan (played by Twilight star, Taylor Lautner), along with his friend, Karen (played by Lily Collins), finds a Web site that has photos of children who are missing or believed to have been abducted. They decide to age one of the photos and discover that it is of Nathan as a child. He contacts the person who placed the photo to find out what's going on. The person on the other end only wants to know information about Nathan, so Nathan hangs up. That person then contacts someone in Europe and shows him a photo of the one who called. He then heads for the U.S. Nathan then wonders if it's true he was abducted. He tells his "mom" who then tells him she and his "father" will tell him. But before they can, two men claiming to be cops show up wanting to talk to Nathan, and when he isn't found they pull guns and demand Nathan be given to them. His parents fight them but are killed. Nathan and Karen run—with the help of Dr. Bennett (played by Sigourney Weaver).

The action is nearly non-stop. The photography is dramatic and realistic, and the production quality is very high. The special effects are excellent. The teen love scenes are (very thankfully) minimal and few.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys high-action thrillers.
