Give me this over XXX and EXTREME OPS any day....
19 November 2003 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

Known in many countries as RIDERS, in the US this film will be released as STEAL if Dimension Films (the company that owns the domestic rights) ever decides to release it - which they should. Sure, it's not great. It has its flaws here and there and offers nothing to original but its far better than XXX and EXTREME OPS, both of which cost three times as much as STEAL and both of which had scripts that were far more ridiculous. I mean, at least this one tries to have a plot (even if it does borrow a little from HEAT).

STEAL, for its mild budget, pulls off some effective action. Some of the effects dont look as good as they would have if the film had been made with more money but it tries and for the most part it accomplishes its goals. And what it doesnt pull off with the so-so effects it makes up for with a charismatic lead in Stephen Dorff (again something XXX didnt have with Vin Diesel and something EXTREME OPS for certain sure didn't have with Devon Sawa - what were they thinking?). Here, Dorff proves that he deserves better roles. In STEAL, Dorff is the character and type of role that I think people have wanted to see Dorff play since he starred as Frost in BLADE.

Overall, STEAL is a fun time at the movies. It has some interesting characters and some clever moments which are surrounded by some good visuals. Thats really all you can ask for in an extreme sports vibed action movie isn't it. Worth a look.
