Editorial Reviews

Based On A True Story

Golden Globe® Award winner Jon Hamm of MAD MEN stars as Detective Tom Adkins, a devoted cop haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his young son eight years earlier. But when Adkins discovers the buried remains of a boy who was brutally murdered more than half a century ago, he becomes obsessed with investigating the long-forgotten crime. Is the 1958 mystery surrounding down-on-his-luck family man Matthew Wakefield (Josh Lucas of GLORY ROAD) and his own abducted son linked in any way to Adkins tragedy? And even if Adkins can prove a connection, can he face the shocking truth about the killer? Rhona Mitra (BOSTON LEGAL, DOOMSDAY), Morena Baccarin (SERENITY) and James Van Der Beek co-star in this harrowing thriller about the parallel lives of two men for whom secrets will not stay hidden when hope has been STOLEN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and riveting! March 21, 2010
I watched this movie expecting to see an ordinary murder mystery. Instead, I was deeply moved by the story of one man's journey to redemption and the unbearable grief a father sustains at the tragic loss of his child under circumstances that lead the fatheer to blame himself.

A policeman (actor John Hamm)investigates the discovery of a child's body in a box in the foundation of a 50 year old building and determines that the death of the child is connected to the disappearance of his small boy ten years before. Meanwhile, a parallel story is occurring some 50 years before to another man (actor Josh Lucas) and the disappearance of his small boy. In each cases the father took his eyes off of his child for a short time and in each case the child disappeared, never to be found.

Now, the detective searches for what happened to the boy in the box, hoping to somehow find his son alive. As the suspense builds and the two stories begin to head toward an intersection, the emotional intensity of the movie takes it from an ordinary whodunnit to tour de force of the power of love, grief, and reconciliation.

The acting is superb, the directing is gifted, and the simplicity of the various settings and characters remind me of another great movie based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize winning "To Kill a Mockingbird".

4.0 out of 5 stars Above average murder mystery that spans decades June 8, 2010
By Viva
Jon Hamm does a great job here as a detective whose son goes missing and who also ends up investigating another case of a missing boy from 50 years earlier. Much of the movie is given in flashbacks, while the present shows what a strain the detective is under because of the conflicts with his wife and his own strong feelings.

James van der Beek, a long way from Dawson's Creek, also turns in a good performance as a hired hand who knows something about the 1958 case.

Worth a look.

"Stolen," of all the disappointing movies I've seen recently, had perhaps the greatest potential to be a memorable and heartrending thriller. Shot as two interwoven stories about child abduction, the film has a pleasantly grim feel. And while the main plot points certainly aren't revelatory or new, I found the narrative shot in parallel timeframes to be quite effective and interesting. Add a top notch cast headed by Jon Hamm and Josh Lucas, and I'm not quite sure what went wrong. By no means is "Stolen" a bad movie, it just left me a bit underwhelmed. Even so, it stands as a showcase for a couple of great performances. I've long thought that Josh Lucas was one of our more underrated actors, and it's always good to see him. And Hamm, now at the height of his popularity, brings a believable intensity to the proceedings.

When Hamm's son goes missing at a rural town carnival, there are no leads in the disappearance. Hamm, a local police officer, doggedly pursues the case to no avail. When a child's body is unearthed many years later, Hamm is convinced it's his son. But the body has been in the ground far too long, even though it bears a disturbing similarity to the current investigation. Through flashbacks and alternating timelines, we are then introduced to Lucas decades before--and you know that this story will explain the unmarked grave. And if Hamm can unravel this mystery, it just might help him determine what happened to his own son. Again, I thought both actors did well and both of the stories had grittiness and emotional anguish.

However, the actual mystery is a bit of a no-brainer, not altogether believable, and lacks the impact necessary to drive this tale home to a successful conclusion. I was left with my first reaction of "Duh...

3.0 out of 5 stars Just not that good July 2, 2010
This was a good idea. A detective's son is kidnapped and after 8 years another boy's body shows up at a construction site. The problem is this boy's been dead for 50 years. But the detective sees similarities in the two cases so he's all over it. The movie then volleys between the story of the old murder and the detective's investigation of his own son's case.

This is an intriguing premise on the surface but it doesn't come off. The movie is a slow ride and some of the plot elements, such as Josh Lucas' hooking up with a married woman with a violent husband, just don't make sense. Then there's the climax. This is the scene where everything is supposed to come together and it falls flat. This is a poorly written scene containing some skewed logic and it felt lousy that I had to sit through this slowness to get to this scene and be fed this garbage.

The acting is decent though nobody is really straining their milk. The production values, music, etc. are all decent. This fails at the script level. I gave it 3 stars but it could easily slide back to 2 and a half. If you think you want to see a movie like this try reaching for Gone Baby Gone. It's much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aren't mystery movies supposed to be mysterious? November 23, 2013
This movie had okay cinematography but it was over-acted and the plot seems contrived (WARNING: BAD MOVIE SPOILER ALERT!) It takes a while to get going and once it did, I already figured the ending out. Maybe I've just watched too many mysteries and crime shows so I know what to expect. Even so, the ending was way too obvious and even if I had not figured it out, I still would not have been happy with the resolution. I don't like having a mystery spelled out for me and this movie involved no critical thinking skills. It seems like it was meant to be a mystery-thriller but the problem's not mysterious or thrilling in the least. I would call this movie a crime drama because it literally tells you everything and it comes off more like a true crime show but it isn't nearly as satisfying.

The movie focuses on two fathers, one modern day cop that had his son vanish 8 years ago. The other father is seen in flashbacks from 1950's and his missing son is found in a box buried in cement many years later. This could have been a great premise for a mystery-thriller...Cop with missing son tries to solve the 50 year old murder of another man's young son...not such a bad idea...The writers just were not creative enough to fill in the blanks with likable characters, believable actors and a story that is interesting. A good mystery usually isn't action-packed and I expect somewhat of a slower pace and more detail than an action movie...but this movie just dragged and anytime it tried to be suspenseful, it just didn't deliver. It wasn't an action movie but it wasn't a "thinking" type of movie either.

A good mystery story should make you think and keep you guessing. It should have a few red herrings, clues and a reason to care about the characters. This movie had none of that.
