I don't remember in which forum, but BHB said a long time ago that it's a bad idea to cast short people who look no older than 18 as action stars (like Mila Kunis in MAX PAYNE). Do you think this applies to Lautner as well? Sure, with his muscles you can believe he could take down other people. But since rumor has it he doesn't take his shirt off this time, we're stuck with his face.

Have you seen the movie "Hanna"? Do you think it looks perfectly normal and natural for a little 14 year old looking girl to be beating up and killing people twice her size and age? If yes, then I don't know what to tell you. If no, then you agree with me that when it comes to certain roles, casting people who don't look old enough to vote in action roles or sexy roles is a dumb idea.

1)I was quoting what Burn said.I never said I agreed.
2)I haven't seen HANNA,but apparently it's explained that she's been training since she was born.I hope they explained that with Lautner's character.

In my opinion, unless the teenager has superpowers, he/she shouldn't be doing the amazing things that they are doing, even if trained at birth. That's where sci-fi works best, when it's used to explained things that normally shouldn't be able to happen. That, and there's the little factor of stuff like Mila Kunis looking too cute to be considered as a badass killer, it's just hard to take seriously.

Acting can only get you so far without having to look the part. It's hard to believe Mila Kunis is going to kill you when she has cute doe eyes and looks like she should be getting ready for the prom. I'm not saying every actor and actress in an action movie needs to look like the cast of "The Expendables," but I do think you should at least look like you're over 21 and have seen many fights and battles in your lifetime!

The state of the action hero depends on the context. If they are supposed to be a regular action hero, like Mila Kunis in Max Payne, Vanessa Hudgens in Sucker Punch, or our current subject, than they can be mocked for bad casting. If it's not supposed to be a regular action hero, like Hanna or Kick-Ass, than it's not the same.
 
As it stands, Hanna's the best action movie of the year that doesn't involve Ryan Gosling curb-stomping a mook.

Okay, then I wish they would have more Hanna and Kick-Ass type of movies instead of the Kunis(es) and Hudgens(es) of the world being woefully miscast.

Movies like Twilight are nothing more than "softcore porn" for girls. Case in point, Taylor has to take off his shirt every 3.45 seconds. This is his idea of how to be taken seriously. But he is still nothing more than eye candy for the obsessed teen girls out there. There are other actors out there with this problem but some of them actually have talent. Like DeCaprio: it took him a while to move past his'pretty boy/Titanic' phase but he actually had the talent to do so. To me, Lautner does not.

DiCaprio is almost double his age and had more experience already back then. So careful with your predictions. I thought Leo had some talent ever since playing the challenged kid in "What's eating" but doubted him after "Titanic" and still don't think he is that good.
Having that said, I saw Abduction and yes, it's worserer. Lautner's PR team successfully tricked people into thinking he is the real deal. Now this is quite the reality check.
