Video: Taylor Lautner Jump Kicks a Guy Through Glass in ‘Abduction’

Taylor Lautner must have been tired of standing around, waiting for Kirsten Stewart to decide between him and Robert Pattinson in the Twilight movies. In his new flick, Abduction, the wunderkind seemingly tackles every stunt under the sun, from crazy driving to gunplay to smashing through anything breakable.

Ripped abs? OK, impressive. Jump kicking a dude through a window while shouting something about your lost identity? That’s heroism.

The latest TV spot for the movie injects 50cc’s of adrenaline directly into your brain, with Lautner teaming up with Sigourney Weaver (Ghostbusers, Avatar) to take down an extremely pissy Alfred Molina (Prince of Persia, Law & Order: LA). This movie isn’t giving you the time to even think about Robert Pattinson.
