  • Angst? What Angst?: After finding out that he was adopted, watching his parents die, and being on the run from trained killers for a day, Nathan calls it "a pretty exciting first date" and makes out with Karen.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Nathan spends a whole night wrapped around Karen, just as Jacob had to with Bella. Even funnier now that Lily Collins and Kristen Stewart have both played Snow White!
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The movie's premise would've worked a lot better if instead of Nathan being wanted by the Serbians as a hostage to lure his real father out, Nathan was a teenage version of Jason Bourne who had forgotten his identity.note  After all, Nathan demonstrates skills that wouldn't entirely be out of the question for a teenage version of Jason Bourne (being able to kill someone with his bare hands, sneaking a revolver into a Major League Baseball Stadium). Instead, we get a movie that relies on contrived Coincidences.

How well does it match the trope?
