The new Taylor Lautner movie Abduction is already out in the US and is set to be released in the UK on September 28 and fans are in for a treat. If they like acting eyebrows. Not since Carlo Ancelotti have eyebrows been so active and boy are these eyebrows active.
Unfortunately for Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner, he gets upstaged by the eyebrows of co star Lily Collins as they seemed to have a role of their own. There is even a scene when Lily is tied up and there is no explanation as to how she escaped, other than her eyebrows must have saved her.
Abduction is flawed from beginning to end, especial when you consider that nobody is ever actually abducted in Abduction. Then there is Taylor’s acting, which has always been questioned in Twilight but he has been able to get away with it due to the enormity of the franchise.
Now he has tried to move on and it looks as though this actor will always be in movies where he takes his top off. His acting is wooden at best and you just spend the whole time thinking ‘when is he gonna turn into a werewolf and kill everyone?’ Twilight typecast comes to mind.
But let’s get back to Lily Collins and those acting eyebrows. As Abduction goes on you will find yourself wondering who it is these eyebrows remind you of. And while the movement of them is reminiscent of Carlo Ancelotti, it is in fact Bert from the duo Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street.
Talking of Sesame Street, you would be forgiven for thinking Sesame Street is actually mystery thriller after watching the predictable Abduction. Also, if anyone was to make a live action movie about Bert and Ernie then they would be wise to cast Lily Collins and Taylor Lautner.
Abduction is worth watching if only to make fun of the over acting eyebrows of Lily Collins but if you are hoping for a good action thriller you will be bitterly disappointed. Even the die hard and clued in Taylor Lautner fans do not approve and Abduction only receives a 3.8 rating on IMDb. Even that is generous. Arriba!!
