It also tells me that I’ll be watching a pre-teen’s version of The Bourne Identity that, instead of balancing great acting with adrenaline-pumping action and intelligent screenwriting, will sacrifice all 3 to milk the money machine that is Lautner. Call me Negative Nancy if you must, but even with supporting performances by Maria Bello, Michael Nyqvist and Sigourney Weaver, it will be hard to turn this unoriginal plot into a winner. Check out the trailer below (along with the synopsis), courtesy of MTV, and let me know what you think.
What would you do if you found your own picture on a missing persons website? Teen Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) finds himself facing this very dilemma. Setting out to uncover his real identity, Nathan quickly learns his parents are far from who they say they are. When the police, government agents and shadowy figures start to pursue him, Nathan’s quest for the truth erupts into a full-blown “Bourne”-like man-on-the-run thriller.
