This movie is about

he was three years old on a missing children website. He discovers
that his parents are not his real birth parents.

Lots of action and
suspense filled with surprising twists and turns throughout the
movie. I happen to enjoy the action. The famous action director
John Singleton did a good job. The movie lasts 1 hour and 46 minutes.
It is rated PG-13.
