About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
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 ...

Nathan wears a Pittsburgh Pirates shirt, #21 with the name Clemente on the back. Roberto Clemente was a star player for the Pirates. He was the first Latin American to have 3000 hits, and the first Latin American elected into the Hall of Fame, posthumously. He won 12 golden gloves, 15 All-star selections, lifetime .317 batting average, and played in two winning World Series, being MVP in the '71 series. He died on a flight to Nicaragua on the 31st of December, 1972, flying with emergency relief items to help after the earthquake there. The statue outside PNC park (which was possibly going to be named after Clemente before PNC bought the naming rights) - where Nathan leaves a ticket - is of Roberto Clemente. See more »
Protective headgear is required to be worn in high school wrestling in Pennsylvania (and in most of the United States), yet none of the wrestlers wear any. (Further, there are usually rules for wearing singlets in competition rather than t-shirts with sleeves ripped off and baggy running shorts, as loose clothing can ensnare and twist fingers.)

The teenager Nathan (Taylor Lautner) feels outcast at home; has nightmares; and is shy. His father practices self-defense with him; he has consultations with the psychologist Dr. Bennett (Sigourney Weaver); and he has a crush on his classmate and next door neighbor Karen (Lily Collins).
When he finds a website with photos of missing children with Karen, he suspects that he might have been adopted. He also contacts the site and the attendant locates him and calls Nikola Kozlow (Michael Nyqvist) in Europe and the guy travels with his gang to USA. Soon his mother discloses that she is his foster mother but his parents are murdered by two criminals. Before dying, her father asks him to run away. He takes Karen to the hospital and Dr. Bennett tells him that he is in danger and gives an address in Pittsburgh to him with the names of two persons that he can trust on. Now Nathan and Karen are hunted down by Kozlow and his men and also by the CIA. The teenagers do not know who is reliable and travels to the address Dr. Bennett gave to them.
"Abduction" is a thriller that wannabe another Bourne Identity-like movie. However, the brainless and lame story has many flaws and despite the cast with Sigourney Weaver, Michael Nyqvist, Maria Bello and Alfred Molina, the lead actor Taylor Lautner is a reasonable and unconvincing athlete and ruins any chance that this flick might have had. Lily Collins is gorgeous and nothing else. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Sem Saída" ("No Way Out")
