Twilight series star Taylor Lautner stars in director John Singleton's thriller about a teen who finds himself in mortal danger after realizing that his entire childhood has been built on lies. Realizing that the people who raised him aren't his real parents after stumbling across a childhood photo of himself on a website devoted to missing children, the frightened teen flees for his life as FBI agents Frank Burton (Frank Molina) and Sandra Burns (Antonique Smith) race to protect him and uncover the truth about his mysterious past.~Jason Buchanan

Initiation Of An Action Hero: Taylor's Amazing Stunts
Opening Scene: Nathan [Lautner] rides on the hood of a pickup truck with his back on the windscreen on his way to a wild teen party. Next day he is greeted with some parental “tough-love” when he gets home without permission for his “overnight.” The plot-line is very well done, it develops slowly drawing you into it and it holds your interest as the action expands, and let’s not overlook the side romance with Nathan and Karan. Pay attention to the “subtle” hints early-on in the movie. The 7.1 dtsHD audio, well-done sound-effects and fine-tuned sound-track really added an air of reality to this action-thriller flick. This is a story of a teenager’s "past" - his entire life - is a lie and the follow-on discovery phase which leads to intense action. The view at times is very intense and it is a great “cloak and dagger” action genre that warrants a ΩΩ.
The movie was good. I was a little hesitant to get the movie because the main star was only really in the Twilight movie series,so I didn't know if he could basically carry a movie. He did pretty good. The storyline was good and so were the physical confrontations between the main character and some others.

I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Entertaining yet predictable teenage show.
Overall I liked it. It was great for one of those nights I just needed something fun with out being heavy.
To qualify this, I have to admit that I saw this film on a rental blu-ray DVD. I did not see the film in the theaters or via on demand. That being, I enjoyed this film. First and formeost, I liked the action of the film and the situations. But, also like the relationships of Nathan's (Taylor Lautner, of Twilight fame) parents and eventually between him the female lead, Karen (Lily Collins-The Blind Side).
This was a surprise as we saw them quickly become friends and then a couple and then get into danger together. And they stay a couple throughout the film with each other have their backs even through the worst of it. Also, they make it through the end of the film as a couple and there is a future for both of them.
All in all I found the film to excellent and I will look forward to purchasing the film.
