Somehow manages to feel low-budget
I saw this movie at the 20 city live red carpet cast premiere. Even though the movie has lots of talented cast like Mario Bello, Jason Issacs, Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina – the movie and the poster squarely focuses on Taylor Lautner. The red carpet talk was about his martial arts background and the numerous cuts and bruises everyone had suffered during the filming process. I was expecting an stunt based, action oriented movie; even more by the talk and comparisons made to the Bourne Identity Matt Damon and Mission Impossible Tom Cruise.
First and foremost, the writing is sloppy, the story is riddled with weak dialog and clichés, tones changes on a whim – there isn’t much more to the plot than what’s given in the trailer – a missing children website leading to the world of guns, secret agents, CIAs etc etc. This movie continues a trend in modern CSI-CIA-crime writing; a lack of understanding of the basic principles of technology and I guess it won’t bother most people but for me the whole plot seemed rather forced.
The most disappointing thing was that the action never felt like a high grade action movie. The much vaunted stunts came out as weak and the fights were just basic B-movie stuff that would have been acceptable in an early 90s action movie. There are no big car chases and the big stadium final set-piece is bit anti-climatic since the writing couldn’t cover up the basic lack of oomph in it. This is even more surprising since the director John Singleton’s last movie is the ultra-violent “Four Brothers”.
The man Taylor Lautner himself does his thing and manages to not look like turning into a werewolf every time. He doesn’t impress with his acting or his martial arts; which begs on why he didn’t insist on a full team of martial arts coaches and stunt-men to make this movie into his action star vehicle. Lily Collins as Nathan’s love interest looks a bit plain jane and has no personality; and doesn’t quite create the chemistry with Taylor Lautner. The train kissing scene, which we were told would leave many a girls jealous, feels more voyeuristic and uncomfortable than jealousy-inducing explosive.
I hate to say it but it feels like a quick cash in on Taylor Lautner’s name and fame. Everything is so undercooked and cheap feeling with numerous blatant and obtrusive product placements that it’s just a big dupe to get the Twilight fans and teenager’s ticket sales before anyone realizes that this isn’t a good movie.
