Excellent action film. Some may argue it's not him playing a usual role. Personally, I don't think it matters. I think he does an excellent job. This film is the perfect mix of twists, action, and crime.

To say this movie is disappointing is to say "I haven't seen a Nicolas Cage movie that has came out in the last 5 or so years." If you've been following Nicolas Cage's career is in an odd place as of late. The movies are mediocre at best but yet he is still drawing some pretty good directors and co-stars. And for the most part they still look like they have decent production value. But still are getting limited theater releases, zero marketing, and for the most part you don't hear of them until they are sitting on the shelve at the rental place. This time around Cage re-teams up with action director hack Simon West that started with the explosive crazy Con Air and now feels like somebody who is important nephew that they give work to to appease the boss. People are saying this is a rip-off of Taken. Which it really isn't. Because that would be saying Taken ripped off Ransom. It's just a father trying to rescue his daughter from a kidnapping. The story here is more straight-forward and on a smaller scale, but still works fairly well. Cage delivers a bit more of a relaxed performance, but still manages to execute some of his over the top performance in there from time to time. Luckily it's usually when it is needed so doesn't distract too much from the overall film. The supporting cast is pretty good featuring Malin Ackerman, Danny Huston, and Josh Lucas who seemed to take over with the over the top delivery here. What really make this film work at all are the decent action, a pretty cool car crash, and the clever robbery scenarios. It has become pretty rare to deliver something all that interesting in film bank jobs, but here they did some pretty creative stuff. It isn't a bad way to spend a dollar at Redbox when you can't find anything else out there.

Will Montgomery was sent to prison for 8 years after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry. Upon his release, he's ready to leave his criminal past behind and rebuild his relationship with estranged daughter, Alison. His former criminal cohorts are all convinced that he hid $10 Million dollars worth of bonds before he was sentenced. His former partner in crime, Vincent, kidnaps Alison and demands the loot as ransom. Montgomery is left with only one choice: To trust his instincts and join forces again with another old partner in crime, the beautiful, sexy and smart Riley Jeffers. Together they must pull off one more heist so he can get his daughter back... before its too late.

Nicolas Cage does the best he can with this mediocre story.

It's a clear ripoff of Taken, and it knows that, and that's what works for it.

150805: This film just never drew me in. It's non-stop action but everything occurs just too easily. It's over before you know it, and personally, I just didn't care that it was. Strangely passionless.

The problem with Stolen is that it's basically the film Taken, without Liam Neeson in it

Obwohl diese Geschichte sich spannend anhört, und der Trailer vielversprechend ist, bleibt der Film hinter den Erwartungen!
Das in dieser Story Cage seine Tochter muss retten, hätte man dramatischer und spannender machen können. Die Figuren bleiben oberflächlich und der Twist verspricht nichts Neues.
Irgendwie fehlt auch die Spannung bei dieser Geschichte. Sicher unterhält der Film, man kann auch aber ein Kaffee holen gehen, ohne etwas zu verpassen.
Fazit: Ein Heist Entführungs Thriller, dass nichts Neues zu erzählen hat!

Um,, I've got nothing to say beyond that it's just bad, incredibly bad.

Not the worst of bad Nicolas Cage movies.

This wasn't a bad movie at all and I am always a little surprised when decent actors feel like making movies with Nicolas Cage.
Josh Lucas, Malin Akerman and Danny Huston star with Nicolas Cage in this thriller about a guy who gets out of prison only to have his daughter kidnapped by an old friend.

In New Orleans, Will Montgomery (Nicolas Cage) and Vincent (Josh Lucas) are preparing for a heist, aided by Riley (Malin Åkerman), their getaway driver, and Hoyt (M.C. Gainey), a computer security expert. They are watched by FBI agent Tim Harland (Danny Huston), who knows that Will and Vincent have been casing a jewelry store for several weeks and plans to arrest them mid-crime.

Will and Vincent break into the neighboring toy store, blowing the adjacent wall. Harland gives them a few minutes before sending his agents into the jewelry store, but Will and Vincent are not there, having instead used the jewelry store to gain access to a bank. In the vault, Will collects $10 million in wrapped bills and drags away Vincent, who had been eying a stack of gold bars. They come across a janitor in a back alley. Vincent attempts to kill the man, but Will refuses, and Vincent accidentally shoots himself in the leg. As their escape van pulls up, Vincent gets in and tells the others to drive off, leaving Will stranded with the money and the FBI closing fast. After a car chase, Will is cornered in an abandoned building. Agents arrest him but find no evidence of the money.

Eight years later, Will is released from prison. He is taken back to New Orleans by Harland, believing that Will stashed the money before his arrest. He warns that he will be watching Will closely. Will returns to his daughter Alison (Sami Gayle), finding that she is struggling with abandonment issues. She refuses to let him talk to her, instead handing over a package addressed to him that was left there that morning. She goes off in a taxi, which has been shown to been trailing Will since his release.

Will goes to a nearby bar where Riley is working. As they talk, the package starts to ring. Will finds a cell phone inside, and the caller reveals himself as Vincent, the driver of the taxi, who now has kidnapped Alison, and he demands the $10 million from the heist within 12 hours. Vincent says he will be tracking Will via the phone and will make regular calls that Will must answer or Alison will die. Vincent drugs Alison and locks her in the taxi's trunk.

Will, aware that Harland's men are also following him, uses the Fat Tuesday celebration to escape. He purchases a second cell phone to redirect calls from the first, then plants the first phone on a leaving train to throw Vincent's tracking off. Will explains the situation to Harland, vowing that he burnt the $10 million just before he was arrested, and asks for help. Harland rejects this, showing that Vincent was reported dead a year prior, a burnt body identified by DNA.

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 movie that leaves you with more questions unanswered then answered while pondering the fact if Nicholas Cages character is brilliant or if the FBI is just oblivious
½ January 11, 2015
A generic action film which you get numb by watching it.

I didn't dig this movie. Nicholas Cage fan here but no not this

A fun time with Nick Cage. I like him a lot. The pacing is crazy at the end, but the set up is great and the villain is cool. Good ol' action.
