The person on the other end only wants to know info 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.

Trivia

Shawn Christensen said that the story for the film was taken from a single idea of a teenager who sees a photo of himself on a missing persons website. He completed the first draft in two months. See more »

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 »

why did they bother making this film, did someone lose a bet?
12 October 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In this time of economic crisis and people all around us loosing homes and jobs, i just wonder what type of salary this Taylor Lautner got for his role in this movie? (7.5 million!!!)Here's a guy who has no right to be given the opportunity to act in films and be paid for it! There are so many talented actors out there serving tables and this guy is getting massive salaries to do what he obviously does worst... act! This was a B minus film, not worth the admission fee or the 2 hours you will waste watching it! I wonder what the budget of this film was?, the money would have been better used if given to starving children or me! go to a gym if your interested in hot bodies, go to the movies if you want a good film, or so the theory goes...
