Enjoyable caper, but that's about it.
December 7, 2020
One of those films that is absorbing enough to push viewers to read up on the source material - a larger-than-life ordeal as fascinating as it is outlandish.
November 18, 2020
Ethan Hawke proves that he not only can he perform in any film genre including comedy, and he can do it well.
July 2, 2020
Stockholm is a succinct and endearingly goofy take on the heist genre.
January 5, 2020
...a good-enough look into the origins of a real-life psychological phenomenon...
July 28, 2019
The talent involved means The Captor is always watchable, but it's never anything more than that.
June 26, 2019
It's fun watching Ethan Hawke's oddball robber socking it to The Man in a wig and stick-on handlebars.
June 26, 2019
The ever watchable Ethan Hawke is the best thing in this crime caper. It's uneven and lacks the power of its premise but always manages to keep your attention hostage.
June 24, 2019
Budreau's film is fitfully entertaining, at its strongest on the similarity between Stockholm syndrome... and what most of us would simply call "a movie romance."
June 22, 2019
Robert Budreau's reimagining of the heist that gave us the term Stockholm syndrome is a strange, funny masquerade.
June 21, 2019
It may not all be true or indeed the complete story, with little of the aftermath re-enacted, but Hawke makes you wish it was.

Age becomes Ethan Hawke. The more raspy and wrinkled he gets, the better he is on screen... And here he holds together a film that is shaky in many respects and shouldn't work.
June 21, 2019
Budreau finds more than a little comedy in all of this. Indeed, he introduces his film with the caption 'Based on an absurd but true story'. That's spot on.
June 19, 2019
An absurd or rather absurdist true-crime melodrama.
June 19, 2019
The film unfolds as a baffling screwball comedy, and recalls classic heist films such as Dog Day Afternoon, even as it persistently subverts our expectations.
June 18, 2019
An interesting period piece which takes a lot of risks and mostly succeeds.
May 16, 2019
Stockholm is uneven, but not entirely uninteresting.
May 6, 2019
A surprisingly sweet character study, largely thanks to Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace.
May 6, 2019
The situation, as presented here, isn't unbelievable, exactly. It's just oddly dull. Hawke is not.
May 2, 2019
The movie falsifies too many details about the caper to have much meaning.
