Annlee Ellingson
Moving Pictures Magazine

Hamm's and Lucas' performances are fine, but first-time director Anders Anderson is heavy-handed and overwrought, portraying emotional turmoil with clichés.

Stolen reveals a filmmaking hand in need of a considerable amount of seasoning.

Robert Levin
Film School Rejects

Every bit the unpleasant slog one might expect, glum and murkily shot, wallowing in pedantic histrionics and badly lacking the breathing room it desperately needs.

Unvarying in tone and style, it's a rough slog.

A technically polished thriller marred by textbook filmmaking that grows increasingly dull as the plot wears on.

Hamm himself is too smart a performer for movies like these, but let's write it off as a canny career move to take a vacation from Don Draper and his glumness.

One poorly told story would be bad enough but with "Stolen" we have two.

[A] graceless piece of tragedy porn...

Though generally ham-fisted, Stolen may appeal to Hamm's more die-hard fans.

Plays like a middling episode of Law & Order: SVU, drawn out an extra half-hour and embellished with pretentious literary and cinematic flourishes.

This gravely serious drama is as insular as a tomb with Muzak.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Not pretentious in its implications, 'Stolen' nevertheless depends excessively on coincidence, on unlikely connections and not clearly differentiated characters.

In the lead-up to the inevitable connection, Anderson builds suspense around innumerable close-ups of telephone touchpads, liquids being spilled, [and] Lucas straining to be a credible hayseed.

A leaden murder mystery with a clunky structure that swings back and forth between 1958 and 2008, Stolen wastes the talents of a reasonably good cast.

None of the actors make much of an impression in Stolen. But then, neither does the film itself.

Two missing children stories are combined to less than compelling effect in this sluggish thriller.

Anders Anderson's thriller struggles to intertwine the two mysteries and ends up doing justice to neither.

The low-boil mystery-thriller Stolen was once known as The Boy In The Box and then Stolen Lives, but now has a title as nondescript as its contents.

No one is able to make much of the disposable script, but Hamm is so limited by the period trappings that it seems as if he simply wandered onto the wrong set.

Not a masterpiece, perhaps, but technically polished, with inspired performances and enough suspense that by the time Mr. Hamm found the redemption that freed him from his own demons, I was so wired I needed a Valium.
