Storyline

In New Orleans, the notorious bank thief and family man Will Montgomery steals $10m with his partners Vincent, Riley Jeffers and Hoyt. However, he has an argument with Vincent in the runaway and Hoyt leaves Will behind. He tries to flee but the FBI agent Tim Harlend organizes a manhunt and Will is captured, but he burns the stolen money to get rid of the evidence against him. Eight years later, Will leaves the prison and he goes to the house of his teenage daughter Alison Loeb, who has issues against him. Alison leaves Will alone in a coffee shop and takes a cab to go to a session with her shrink. However, a couple of minutes later, Will receives a phone call from Vincent, who is presumed dead, telling that he has abducted Alison and will kill her unless he receives the $10m of the last robbery. Now Will has twelve hours to find a way to rescue his daughter from the hands of the psychopath Vincent. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The taxicabs in New Orleans do not have the taxicabs Number in the roof light. They are on the front and rear bumpers. While this was filmed on location, all of the taxicabs filmed had to have New York City roof lights installed, as part of the plot relied on this. The majority of the taxicabs however, were real local taxis, or automobile extras, If you like. The taxicabs that did volunteer for the service, were mostly independently owned and not fleet taxis, as the majority of them have advertising signs on the roof. Also Medallion Cab Company does not exist. Yellow, Checker taxi, and United cab company are some of the bigger New Orleans taxi companies. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 14 mins) When Will and Riley are in the sewer trying to flee, you can see Cage stop and wait for his cue, you can see a portion of his body behind the wall as Akerman turns the corner. He isn't moving and then all of a sudden starts to. Obviously he was waiting for his cue from the director, but wasn't totally out of the shot like he should have been. See more »

All quiet on the West(ern) front?
28 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Not really, especially if you think about what he did last year (Mechanic, Jason Statham) and more recently with Expandables 2. So Stolen is kind of the odd one out of that trio of movies. While it does have some fine acting talent involved, it never really takes off. It's not a complete letdown either, so you get a movie by the numbers.

There's quite a few things that you can see coming (rather predictable then) and the story does have some neat coincidences happening, that could only happen in a movie like this. One of my pet peeves gets checked too (unfortunately). It's when a character explains what is obvious. It's selling the viewer short (most of them anyway) and it's something I don't like at all.

Acting-wise it's OK and the "tension" is there almost until the end.
