Stolen begins at overdetermined, makes a pit stop at outright sadistic and winds up in the parking garage of ridiculous even for a movie of this sort.

The deep-rooted silliness makes it hard to take anything in the film seriously. But at least it has the decency never to ask us to.

In Stolen, [Cage] steals away with nothing; he's simply stalled out.

Cage is uncharacteristically muted. He seems to have given up on making art long ago; these days, all he wants to do is entertain, and with Stolen, he succeeds, albeit only on the guilty-pleasure level.

Stolen knows what type of movie it is and has resolutely low-ambitions, but it succeeds on its own terms as a fast, fun, B-grade piece of junk.

a diverting but predictable action movie.

By turns hilarious, absurd, offensive, and insulting, this is all rote action that will pique your interest only when it is being completely ridiculous.

Cage works up a sweat dashing about New Orleans... but the film's thrills and spills are all too routine

The hammy criminal leads chew the scenery, with only Huston delivering a remotely convincing performance.

The film ends up being devoid of tension. They probably should have kept the bunny in the box.

A film that feels too close to Liam Neeson's 2009-hit Taken for comfort ...

Though this isn't quite rock-bottom for Nicolas Cage, that's hardly saying much these days.

Far more fun when it was called Taken.

Loud, predictable fun from Simon 'Con Air' West.

In addition to being built around a plot that unashamedly rips off 2008's Taken, it's a sloppily assembled example of slapdash filmmaking.

January 11, 2013 Full Review Source: Times-Picayune

Stolen is junk but it's intermittently amusing junk, best when locked in demolition derby mode, while Cage attempts to jazz up the acting by swallowing his sighs to the best of his ability.

November 8, 2012 Full Review Source:

From the plot to relationships to visuals, no one single aspect stands out as a genre breaking moment, but through fun-focused delivery, West is able to succinctly create a thrilling watch.

Unconscionably boring. The real act of theft here is of the ninety minutes the picture steals from your life.

For all the heists, chases and shoot-outs, it's a sluggish picture. Characters feel the need to stop the action to explain themselves. Thoroughly.

Audience Reviews for Stolen

"Stolen needs to be added to all the bad films Nicolas Cage has made lately. It's not his acting. The man is a good actor. He is, and will always be, a favorite of mine. But the material this man has been doing lately is garbage. I don't understand why he continues to pick these films. But it also had Josh Lucas and Danny Huston in it as well who are good actors too. I guess everyone just wanted an easy paycheck. The action is mediocre and the acting is OK, but over the top by a couple. The only one I really liked in this was Malin Akerman. The movie is poorly directed and scripted. They managed to pull off a good cast, but even they couldn't save this."

A sharp and fast-paced action-thriller. Director, Simon West and Star, Nicolas Cage re-team for the first time since Con Air to deliver another fast and furious thrill-ride. It`s a cool and surprisingly good film. A smart, thrilling, and wickedly entertaining movie, It starts off as a heist film then turns into a exciting cat and mouse game that delivers some solid twist and thrilling action scenes. A pulse-pounding thrill-a-minute action-packed ride. An explosive good-time to watch. A great all-star cast. Nicolas Cage is terrific, he gives a solid and great performance, he has been showing much better promise as of lately with this, Seeking Justice and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, looks like Cage is actually enjoying his job again. Danny Huston is fantastic as usual. Josh Lucas is electrifying, he dose not fail to play at playing a great villain.

12 Hours. $10 Million. 1 Kidnapped Daughter.

Good movie! A decent movie by Nicholas Cage. The plot is predictable, the premise has nothing new to show, and nothing really stand out from the movie. A few funny moments here and there in the movie was refreshing. Nevertheless, a decent movie and a decent performance by Cage. Don't set a high expectation, ignore the logic of the storyline, and you will enjoy the movie.

A former thief frantically searches for his missing daughter, who has been kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a taxi.

Simon West and Nicolas Cage team up for the intense action thriller Stolen. The story follows an ex-bank robber whose daughter is kidnapped by his former partner and held for ransom. The cast is quite good, and includes Nicolas Cage, Josh Lucas, and Malin Akerman. However West's directing is a bit uneven, particularly in how he tries to incorporate Mardi Gras into the setting. Still, the action is shot well and gives the film a lot of energy. Stolen is pretty formulaic and has its share of problems, but it's a solid action film (all things considered).
