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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
