'Abduction' -- 2 stars

<b>PG-13; 1:46 running time</b><Br><br>
"Twilight" alumnus Taylor Lautner makes his debut as a leading man in an film tailor-made for him. "Abduction" puts Lautner in motion and never goes wrong as long as he remains in motion. The buff teen werewolf of "Twilight" plays a young man who has his world upended and finds himself on the run when enemy agents attack his home and the people he knew as his parents aren't who they say they are. In the opening minutes, we meet Nathan (Lautner), a studly wrestler in high school, constantly tested by his strict and martial dad (Jason Isaacs), nurtured by his more understanding mom (Maria Bello). If only they knew how he surfed on the hood of a pal's pickup truck, how he gets blotto at teen beer busts. Dad finds out and punishes the kid with mixed martial arts training. No wonder the kid's in therapy. -- Roger Moore<br><br>Read the <a href=http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/movies/sc-mov-0920-abduction-20110923,0,5325670.story>full "Abduction" review</a>
