Nic Cage has had a few hits and misses over the years and pops up in every genre going, Stolen reunites him with Simon West the director of expendables 2 and the famous Nic Cage classic Con Air! This movie is great in that its simple to follow and great fun at the same time, well paced action and good performances from Cage and the rest of the cast, its not over the top bloody action but still suits Cage perfectly, if you're a fan its really worth checking out, a fun action thriller!!

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 7 June 2013
Despite a ridiculous premise and some massive plot contrivances I found this fast paced actioner a real hoot. When two of his team bodge a heist, Will Montgomery (Nick Cage) ends up doing an eight stretch but not before burning the loot to secure less jail time. On release, he tries to kick start his relationship with his daughter, unfortunately though, his former partners pinch the kid and demand their share of the booty. With no legitimate way to get that kind of cash, Will must do what he's good at; que stunts, fights and a race against time bank robbery. Nick Cage and Malin Ackerman are easy to like and Josh Lucas does really well as the bad guy; to be fair, all of the cast look like they were enjoying themselves. This journeyman action/thriller is competently directed by Simon West (mechanic) and although not ground breaking it is never boring. I dunno if this was filmed during Madi Gras but the sets were good and movie didn't look cheap. The final fight (there's always a final fight) was well handled and the feel good ending capped off an easygoing hour and a half. Not Nick's best, not anyone's best, but better than that godawful Parker on which I spent a small fortune to see at the cinema.

Will Montgomery (Cage) is the brains behind a team of thieves, as they're latest job backfires Will is left holding the bag & spending 8 years in jail, enough of a punishment you might think. However the FBI are breathing down his neck upon release, suspecting he's holding out on the money, an idea shared by some of Will's old buddies who also believe he's stashed the millions for himself & now they want they're share. Kidnapping his estranged daughter Alison (Gayle) he has 12 hours to get them $10 million, or his daughter dies! Can he evade the FBI & get the money in time ?!

Stolen reunites Con Air director Simon West with the star of that movie, Nicolas Cage, in this more modest budget thriller which at heart is a predictable abduction & ransom plot, with the now well used Taken-esque estranged father/daughter routine. But thanks to a good cast, some neat twists, humor in places & Simon West's trademark action style which injects a snappy pace over it's 90 minute run time. It manages to help divert your attention from those flaws.

Nicolas Cage leads the movie well as the cool & collected master thief, turned distraught & desperate father. Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama) does a great turn as Cage's once vein partner in crime, turned deformed lunatic. Sami Gayle (Blue Bloods) is convincing as the kidnapped daughter & has good rapport with Cage. While Danny Huston (30 Days Of Night) & Mark Valley (Human Target) are assured as the FBI agents hunting Cage down & waiting for him to slip up. Others of note, Malin Akerman (The Heartbreak Kid) & M.C. Gainey (Con Air) as Cage's ex-partners were good support. (Trivia: Jason Statham was also considered for the lead role).

In conclusion, Stolen isn't going to blow your socks off with a genre busting offering. But it's fast pace, interesting twists, humor & good cast help paper over the flaws & make for a watchable thriller. Recommended.

I was just thinking the other day, "It's been weeks since Hollywood has put out a kidnapped daughter, daddy rescue film. I wonder when the next one is coming out?" Nicolas Cage returns to New Orleans to play super thief Will Montgomery, who unfortunately gets nabbed on his first movie heist. After eight years in prison he comes out to an estranged daughter with abandonment issues, who he loves dearly (Sami Gayle), and a bunch of people who want to know where he stashed the money.

Will claims he burned the money in a nearby fire, something I imagine that the FBI never bothered to check for ashes as it was a good three feet away from the car which they seen Will emerge. The film description tells us his daughter is kidnapped, to no surprise as the title is "Stolen" because Liam Neeson has cornered the market on "Taken." His former partner Vincent (Josh Lucas) wants his share.

Outside of the great soundtrack, the first thing I noticed was the name "Vincent." It is the same name used for a vampire in FF VII. Nicolas Cage has recently been outed as a real life vampire (check Google), which he denies. Is a movie industry ploy, dropping clues, i.e. "Paul is dead" in order for us see Cage's films?

If you have never seen an action film before or a kidnapped daughter film, this is a decent flick. The problem is that I have become burnt out on the same formula.

As far as kidnapped daughter films, Nicolas Cage isn't as good as Liam, but is better than John Cusack.

Parental Guide: Some F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

Nicolas Cage plays a master criminal, a safe breaker, who gets an 8 year prison sentence after a botched bank robbery. During the bank job, Cage's character falls out with one of his accomplices (played by Josh Lucas), with the end result that he shoots Lucas in the leg, and the stolen £10 million cash "disappears". Whilst Cage is incarcerated, Lucas has a leg amputated as a result of the gunshot wound, and this apparently causes him to lose the plot mentally. Cage is released after 8 years, and seeks to reunite with his teenage daughter. Lucas decides to exact vengeance by kidnapping Cage's daughter, in an effort to coerce Cage into revealing where the loot is hidden. This film has both its strong points and inherent weaknesses. Josh Lucas is a revelation as the bad guy, and he clearly revels in the chance to play a demented psycho, who thinks nothing about taking a life. His character reminded me a little of the psycho-killer sniper in the Dirty Harry movie. Cage neither excels (think Con Air or Raising Arizona), nor repels (think any one of his other recent movies), and though he gives a solid enough performance, here he is acted off screen by Lucas. The action sequences, which are plentiful, are well choreographed and shot, but there is no stand out scene or dialogue, which would have you remembering this movie for years to come. This film is actually quite comparable to a couple of Mel Gibson movies, namely the kidnap tale Ransom, and the revenge movie Payback. If you liked either of those Gibson vehicles, you'll probably enjoy Stolen.

'Will Montgomery' has spent 8 yearts in prison after a cop-stake-out trapped
the master thief..
People on the outside have allways believed 'Will' had hidden the 10 million
dollars before his capture.
Now out of prison he visits his now 15 year old daughter only to find that
she's not interested.
His daughter had given him a package that had been posted at her home for her father.
whilst having a drink at a bar where a former partner in crime 'Riley'(Malin Akerman) serves,
a phone that's inside the package rings............
It's 'Vincent'(Josh Lucas) another former partner-in-crime who tells 'Will' he has his daughter,
and he wants his share of the money, trouble is, 'Will' hasn't got it, he'd burnt it before capture.
the police won't help him,they don't seem to believe 'Will's' story, on their
records 'vncent' is dead.
'Will' now has to find his daughter his way asking 'Riley' for her help to carry
out a robbery to give to 'Vincent 'the money he demands before he carries out his threat to
kill 'Alison' (Sami Gayle)
A good action thriller with some good car chase stunts.
'Nicolas Cage' doing what he does best

With Nicolas Cage you never know which version of him we will get in the movies till it comes out. Sometimes I wonder why an actor of his caliber would sign on to some of the films he does, and then he come up with a really good film that reminds me what he is like with his A game. In this film it Nic on a good day. he plays the part of the criminal mastermind with a conscience perfectly. Good acting, good chase scenes and even good intelligent action.

Cage plays a career criminal mastermind. he has his own method for preparing of a heist with drive his co-conspirators mad but they know the results well have worth the irritation. After a daring high risk high reward heist Cage is arrested. Refusing to give up his partners, but with the loot missing he is sentenced for 8 year. Coming out he tries to make a mends with his estranged daughter. The trouble is the FBI and with partners think he has stashed the money and the latter will do anything to get what they feel is owed them including kidnapping his daughter.

Good return to form movie for NC. A Fast passed intelligent film. I enjoyed it all the way through.

This film stars Nicolas Cage and, let's face it, he has made some real stinkers. Stolen is not one of them. He plays a former bank robber who has to find a way of getting ten million dollars to save his daughter, who is kidnapped by one of his former accomplices. I really enjoyed this film, it has a very familiar plot to anyone who has seen a "daughter in peril" film before, but the film is fast-moving and there is enough action to keep the viewer's attention. It is a fun way of passing an hour and a half and you could do a hell of a lot worse than to watch this film, if you love heist films or thrillers. I did not recognise most of the supporting cast, though I am told that they have been in other TV series and films, but this does not really matter to me. I give this solid and well-acted thriller three stars. I would have given it more, but I do not think it is really worth five stars and there are also many similar films out there, some of them better. It is still worth watching, though.

A disappointing film. The plot was very thin, and although the acting, action was okay, it could not raise the film above distinctly average. It had one of those annoying 70s movies scores, which always turns me off. The one thing in it's favour was it was an easy watch, and you certainly don't have to use too much brain matter when viewing.
