Trespass. Seeking Justice. Stolen. Nic Cage has been suffering on the Direct-To-DVD market lately, and his super fans (like myself) have been suffering right there along side him. I freaking loved last year's Drive Angry, and even found ways to enjoy Season of the Witch. But Ghost Rider 2? Even with Neveldine & Taylor, the thrill just wasn't there. And Stolen looks to be on par with the mediocrity of Trespass & Seeking Justice. Seriously, what's with the trailer narration? That voice isn't even trying. And as much as I love Cage & director Simon West's Con Air, this looks like a (really, really, really) poor man's Taken. Stolen will play theatrically for just one day, September 14, and will quickly be forgotten on the home video front.
Still, it's got a great B-movie cast in Josh Lucas (he's trying to out Cage Cage here), Danny Huston, Malin Akkerman, and MC Gainey. And I'll probably buy the blu like I did Tresspass, Seeking Justice, and every other freaking Cage movie that's ever existed. Either I'm a masochist or just a really hopeful film fan.
