Watch Stolen - Alternative Versions.
The revenge plot has been done to death. Kidnapping the protagonist's
daughter has been done to death. Everything about this movie has been
done before, and done much, much better. This is just another extortion
movie where the former friend of a former bank robber wants his share
of the heist, and kidnaps the hero's (Nicolas Cage) daughter as ransom.
The thing is, Cage burned the money. So how is he going to pay this
lunatic? Well, he's gotta commit one more heist for it to be all over.
Sound predictable? That's because it is.
Every beat of this movie is predictable. It wouldn't be so bad if they
added some depth to the characters but everything is so
one-dimensional. Will (Nicolas Cage) loves his daughter and used to rob
banks - that's all we get as far as character development. Vincent
(played by Josh Lucas) wants money. They both were involved with a
robbery gone wrong at the start of the film and Will burned the money
before being arrested and jailed for eight years, but Vincent still
wants his share. He waited eight years to exact his revenge. Eight. And
the diabolical plan he came up with during that time is to kidnap
Will's daughter and threaten to kill her if he doesn't get paid. It's
like the writers weren't even trying.
What the writers do is explain EVERYTHING that's happening to the
audience. They spoon-feed everything with the subtlety of a
sledgehammer, and this constitutes about 90% of the dialogue:
Explaining what you are seeing on screen. The other 10% is forced
relationships and throwaway police banter. It's really stupid. Watching
the movie on mute is probably much more entertaining.
Let's talk about the villain for a minute because he's really quite a
character, or caricature rather. He has no personality whatsoever so
they give him all of these weird traits to mask the fact that he's
boring as all f*ck. A metal stick for a leg, long messy hair, a rugged
shady look, a twisted sense of morals, and he's a cab driver. It's like
baby's first psychopath. Now I don't blame Josh Lucas for this at all,
in fact he makes the character watchable, but not even good acting can
save the villain from being a walking, talking cliché.
The police are just stupid in this. Stupider than usual in fact.
They're not even worth talking about. All you need to know is that you
know what you're getting into with this movie before it even starts and
it gives you absolutely no surprises or suspense. It's a by-the-numbers
action thriller with Nicolas Cage. It has a few funny moments sure,
most are unintentional, but if you're hoping that this would at least
be a fun, over-the-top Nicolas Cage action movie, then I'm afraid
you'll be sorely disappointed. Stolen is overwhelmingly and sometimes
