A 2011 action movie starring TaylorLautner, Creator/LilyCollins, Creator/AlfredMolina, and Creator/SigourneyWeaver and produced by {{Creator/Lionsgate}}.

Nathan Price is an average High School Senior - going to parties, riding his motorcycle, and daydreaming about the girl next door. Then one day while doing research for a sociology paper, he finds his own face on a missing persons website. Before he can think, the people he has always thought of as his parents die as assassins arrive to collect him, and he finds himself on the run from bounty hunters and the CIA.

While being a standard action movie, it was largely panned by critics.

!!Tropes in this movie:
* ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount: Gilly, Nathan's friend who scores him fake ID's, train tickets, ''game-day playoff tickets'', and large sums of cash in short order. [[{{Headscratchers}} What on earth is this kid involved in to give him such fluid resources at his age?]]
** FridgeBrilliance: Nathan's other friend comments that Gilly should put "making fake ID's" on his resume for college. Further, he's getting anywhere from one to a couple hundred dollars per ID. Even if he's making only $25 profit from each $100 ID, that he goes to parties where a yard-full of people engage in under-age drinking means that he has had at least a couple dozen clients. For a kid with no significant debts, that's a good chunk of spending money.
* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Nathan's birth certificate says "State of Pennsylvania", but Pennsylvania is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commonwealth#U.S._states Commonweath]]. Also, Nathan rides around on his motorcycle without a helmet - but PA laws say you ''must'' wear one until you are 21 years of age.
** Be far from it to like this movie, Nathan not riding with a helmet can be an example of teenage rebellion. But, the producers probably didn't think this one through like any other part of the movie.
* BoundAndGagged: Karen on the [[spoiler: train. She escapes.]]
* CaliforniaDoubling: The movie is set and filmed in UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}}, but Pittsburgh also stands in for Virginia. A corridor in the August Wilson Center for the Preforming Arts doubles as CIA headquarters.
* ChangelingFantasy: Pretty much the whole plot.
* DawsonCasting: Not too bad with Lautner, who was playing his age at the time; but LilyCollins was 20, playing a 17 year old. Come to think of it, that may be the reason for the aborted makeout session (and eventual sex) on the train.
* FruitCart: Nachos during the chase at the park.
* GirlNextDoor: Karen.
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Nathan is chased through PNC Park, knocking over many people - but this does not attract the eyes of security.
* MysteriousParent: And Nathan's Dad wants to stay that way.
* NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine: Frank takes Nathan and Karen out to eat after chasing them for quite a while.
* ObliviousAdoption: Nathan looks ''nothing'' like his "parents", yet he's still a little angsty when he finds out.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Nathan.
* PassThePopcorn: "I don't know much about baseball, but I do like popcorn."
* UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}}: Look for The August Wilson Center for the Preforming Arts, the rotunda to the old Union Train Station (next to the East Busway bus rapid transit (BRT) line on a former rail route), the Amtrak Station, and of course the climax at PNC Park.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Nathan's family was hardly straight about him being adopted, nor did Nathan go straight to his parents when he began to suspect that he was. Folks died.
* RemovedFromThePicture: Nathan's baby picture was found to be cropped once they find an artifact of an arm in it.
* IThoughtThatWas: The movie is called "Abduction", so guess who gets/got abducted! Give up? ''Nobody.'' Karen gets very temporarily kidnapped while on the train, but hardly enough so to qualify for the title.
* ThrillerOnTheExpress: The protagonists try to leave for Kansas by train. It doesn't work out well.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: A man is gunned down by a sniper in broad daylight outside of a busy baseball stadium. No one outside of the main characters notices.
** Some people in the parking lot noticed, but they were just sort of pointing and nonchalantly trying to figure out where the shot came from. They didn't really seem to care though.
* WildTeenParty: The movie starts out with one.
