Format: VHS Tape
Doing many job interviews, finishing your thesis, and waiting for the upcoming graduation. At least "Abandon" succeeds in presenting credible characters facing the end of their days in university, and their nervous and unstable mental conditions. The problem is, the central plot is not about them.
Katie Holmes plays Katie Burke, intelligent (and a little bit icy) student preparing for the unnerving job interview with the first-rate company. But what is more unnerving for her is the loss of her boyfriend Embry (Charlie Hunnham, "Nicholas Nickleby), who has been missing for the last two years, and nobody knows whether he is dead or alive.
Before her, a handsome police detective (Benjamin Bratt) appears, who is trying to locate Embry. While trying to forget all about her past, and seeing the possibility of new love in front of her, Katie still cannot help daydreaming about her lost love. And it seems Embry also wants to come back since she keeps on 'seeing' him on campus or in her room. But is she just dreaming, or what?
The premise is interesting, but the result is not. We have little to find or detect from the beginning, and on the way the film starts to act as if it's not a thriller. Without occasional episodes (like the 'eyes' staring Katie), you forget this is supposed to be a thriller. I actually began to think that I was mistaken in supposing it's a thriller. It is. The thing is, it is done with a too thin material to make a chilling thriller.
The chacaters are interesting, all of them being the ones you know you see around you. Melanie Lynskey and Zooey Deschanel give us precious support, but their characters have nothing to do with the central plot.

Abandon (2002) Katie Holmes, Benjamin Bratt, Charlie Hunnam, Zooey Deschanel, Melanie Lynskey, Gabrielle Union, Gabriel Mann, Tony Goldwyn, Will McCormack, Fred Ward, Mark Feuerstein D: Stephen Gaghan.
TRAFFIC's Academy Award-winning writer Gaghan bases his new screenplay loosely on Adam's Fall, a novel written by Sean Desmond, and sits in the director's chair. His thriller stars Holmes as Katie Burke, a sharp-witted college student, who has just aced a job interview with a firm and is in the process of completing her thesis and studying for finals, then her ex-boyfriend, Embry (Hunnam) reappears after he vanished for two years. Is Katie hallucinating? Certainly not when Detective Bratt even gets on the case, right?
An inside look at collegian parties, studying, and females blossoming to sexual maturity; the leading lady's roommates are well portrayed by funny-girl Deschanel and Union, plus Lynskey as a mousy librarian. Still, very well crafted, the unforeseen twist near the denouement throws the suspense out the window and almost seems the mood was made for nothing.
Running Time: 99 minutes and rated PG-13 for drug and alcohol content, sexuality, some violence, and language.

this one makes your blood thin. I watched this expecting a lot of twists but it didnt, only the end. Katie Holmes is beautiful as always but we dont feel for her character. Benjamin Bratt is always watchable but his character seems a little bit out of shape and Charlie Humane or whatever his last name is, is boring as hell as Holmes supposedly dead boyfriend. theres moments where you keep wondering, theres moments where you get headaches like that scene where Holmes and friends get high and its like 4 minutes of blue flashing. anyways it wasnt that good but it wasnt horrible. Stephen Gaghan wrote a even better movie called Traffic

Suckered in by the synopsis of this film on a box office channel I decided to check it out. The film follows the tale of a female college student in the middle of writing her thesis, who finds herself suddenly involved in the investigation of her ex-boyfriend's disappearance 2 years ago. After a fairly decent start that managed to keep me interested, I found myself unbelievably being gently lulled into a peaceful sleep at 2 in the afternoon by the film's dire lack of pace, extremeley quiet low key performances, and dull rambling script. After several minutes of my head lolling forward I found that I could no longer fight the hypnotic power of Abandon, and gave in to it's will. I woke up somewhere near the end, some 45 minutes later, where the film wound up with one of those not-really-much-of-a-surprise endings. I really am struggling to find something positive to say about the film. Some of the lighting was quite nice, and the opening music was very mood-setting. Katie Homles was ok. But apart from that, it was very poor. The basic idea was extremely good, but somehow the film just completely fails to deliver. I just get the feeling that it could have been so much more - a better script, better leading men and more inventive ideas could have saved it. As it is, I would avoid, unless you're wide awake at 1 am panicing about not getting enough sleep for work. In which case, stick it on and sail away to the land of nod...
