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 ...

Trivia

The chase scene at PNC Park was filmed on August 22, 2010, during an actual game. The Pirates beat the Mets 2-1. John Singleton wanted to film a chase scene there, which was not in the script, with a small crew with Taylor Lautner doing his own stunts. See more »

Goofs

When the CIA agent presents the Kozlow case, on the right side of the LCD you can see "known associates". The man in focus seems to have the newest Croatian biometric passport. However, the picture on it would not have been accepted as a passport photo due to dark background. Also, the picture, obviously taken from the "passport" is not edited (in Croatian passports, photos are "digitally enhanced" to emphasize ears, nose, eyes, all facial hair and the chin. As a consequence, the photos in Croatian passports look more like drawings than real photographs. See more »

OMG! Major disappointment
26 September 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

PROS - His abs. Really nice body (which I am guessing women over 45 liked it so much)

CONS - Everything.

In summary this movie is shocking. It did look promising for the first 5minutes but it went down hill really fast. The acting was so bad and the lines are shocking. Sigourney Weaver does her best with but like us she has trouble relating to anyone in the movie. It gets to the point that where you just wished either the bad guys with the guns or the good guys with the guns (that's the CIA... That's right pure as the driven snow) would catch the kid.

I would say get it out on DVD or download it, but I would strongly recommend saving your money and your bandwidth allocation and your time, and watch something else.... Anything else....
