Here's a the first trailer to Nicolas Cage's terrible looking movie, Stolen. What's crazy is this movie actually has a decent director and cast, unfortunately the movie looks like a piece of crap to me. The movie was directed by Simon West (Con Air, Tomb Raider), and also stars Josh Lucas, Malin Akerman and Danny Huston.
When I see a movie like this, it makes me wonder if any of investors or studio executives actually read the script before they greenlit it. I Imagine the pitch meeting went something like this.... "It's like the movie Taken only it's not!" It seems like a direct to DVD knock-off movie, especially with that title... Stolen.
Here's the Synopsis:
Will Montgomery is a master thief who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he's ready to leave his criminal past behind and try to rebuild a relationship with his estranged daughter Allison. The FBI and his old cohorts believe that he hid the loot from the last heist eight years ago, $10 million in bonds. To get his hands on it, his old partner Vincent kidnaps Allison and demands the entire $10 million as ransom. Keeping her in the soundproofed trunk of a taxi cab, he's able to stay mobile amongst the throngs of taxis out during Mardi Gras, making it nearly impossible to find. Montgomery only has one day to get the $10 million ransom, but much to the disbelief of the FBI on his trail and Vincent, Will doesn't actually have it. Instead, he must trust his instincts and his old partner in crime, the beautiful, sexy and smart Riley, to do one more clever heist to get his daughter back alive before it's too late.
The movie hits theaters on September 14th, and you can watch the trailer below... or don't watch the trailer, it's just a Nic cage movie.
