DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Mystery - Not much happens for the first three-quarters of this movie. There's no action or suspense or really anything that's of much interest. It's basically an investigative drama about a cop looking for a missing college student. Only at the very end does it get interesting and somewhat suspenseful. The story also reveals a surprise ending so you know why it showed you a lot of the previous scenes. This surprise ending helps make the movie more interesting, but it takes a long time getting there.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Abandon hope all ye who enter Stephen Gaghan's directorial debut expecting it to build on the promise of his Oscar-winning ''Traffic'' screenplay.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Below Average "With the flat characters and lifeless performances, it's a wonder that anyone in the audience can stay awake all the way through this dull and dreary production.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Above Average "Abandon is a moody, effective thriller for about 80 percent of the way, and then our hands close on air. If you walk out before the ending, you'll think it's better than it is.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Below Average "Director Stephen Gaghan serves up a jumbled campus variation on Roman Polanski's far more macabre Repulsion, tossing in dorm eccentrics and substance abuse. Holmes, of Dawson's Creek, will be up the creek if she can't avoid movies like this. And so will you if you see it.''
