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

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.

Far more fun when it was called Taken.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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 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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
