‘Stolen (Japan title: Getto Bakku)’

by Kaori Shoji

Director: Simon West

Language: English

Nicolas Cage plays a former thief who had pulled off impressive heists in his day but ended up in prison. When he’s released eight years later, an ex-buddy is out for revenge, and his teenage daughter is kidnapped, locked up in a taxi trunk and sobbing for daddy. “Stolen” may just be a regurgitated version of “Taken” but there’s also a lesson: what not to do with your career when you’re a big actor related to Francis Ford Coppola.
