Rated 2.0

A teenager (Taylor Lautner) finds a kid’s picture on a missing-children website which, digitally aged to add 10 years, looks an awful lot like himself. Just as he learns that his parents (Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello) aren’t really his parents, two men show up and murder them, sending the boy and a neighbor girl (Lily Collins) on the run, looking for answers from his therapist-who-isn’t-really-a-therapist (Sigourney Weaver) and from a CIA agent (Alfred Molina) who maybe can’t be trusted. Shawn Christensen’s preposterous script has more twists and holes than a bad mountain road, so director John Singleton tries to keep the action moving too fast for us to notice. He fails, though not for want of trying. Lautner similarly tries hard to etch more than one expression on his impassive face; he fails too.
