Storyline

High school seniors Nathan and Karen find a website with photos of children who are missing or believed abducted. One of the photos is of Nathan as a child, putting into question the identities of the couple whom he's always called Mom and Dad. Contacting the site to learn more only results in Nathan becoming the target of an intense, high-tech, international manhunt. Before his "parents" can explain themselves, they are executed by hired guns, and Nathan is on the run with Karen in tow (who just happened to be there at the wrong time). Phone use by either of them only connects directly to a man claiming to be C.I.A., in whom they find reasons not to trust. With encroaching shootouts, car chases, hand-to-hand combat and explosions around them, this seems quite much for a mere case of child abduction, and Nathan can only rely on the wrestling, boxing and martial arts skills taught by his "dad" to protect both himself and Karen as they follow a lead to find Martin, Nathan's biological ...

Goofs

In an early scene, Nathan and Karen are studying after school. She leaves to catch her uncle's phone call at home (just across the street). Before she leaves they decide to meet at her place in an hour. At the time she leaves daylight can be seen outside. When they reconvene it is dark outside. Knowing that it never stays light out in Pennsylvania past 9:00pm during the year, we can assume it is no later than 10:00pm. In the same scene, there is a cut to a guy in New York who sees Nathan on webcam and calls his boss in London. However, when the film cuts to London it is daytime. London is no more than 6 hours ahead of Pennsylvania. Technically, it should have been around 3am. See more »

Awful from start to finish
20 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

If there was a rating on this site lower than 1/10, I'd have chosen that rating instead. Absolutely terrible. I didn't find any redeeming quality in it, Sigourney Weaver even looked like she was wincing at how terrible the whole thing was.

It was so terrible, that even if Taylor Lautner had his shirt off through the whole movie, sweat dripping off his body, his marvelous abs glistening, it still would have sucked just as much. Its like no one was even trying to make it an 'eh' movie.

Don't even illegally download this crap, so not even worth it.

It couldn't even pass as a crappy movie for young and impressionable teenage girls to swoon over.
