Stolen Reviews

December 11, 2018
It's a little hokey, but who cares?
November 25, 2013
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.
August 5, 2013
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.
March 20, 2013
A film that feels too close to Liam Neeson's 2009-hit Taken for comfort ...
March 19, 2013
Though this isn't quite rock-bottom for Nicolas Cage, that's hardly saying much these days.
March 17, 2013
Far more fun when it was called Taken.
March 15, 2013
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.

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.

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.
September 15, 2012
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.
September 14, 2012
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.
September 14, 2012
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.
September 13, 2012
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.
