Stolen (2012)

Nicolas Cage is a master thief forced to pull off a heist when both the cops and his former partners go after him following his release from jail.

The gimmick seems to be: Crapsack post-hurricane New Orleans, heist film done old school style, filmed with 80s extravagance of crashes and explosions.

Watch for: a very competently written and directed heist film, the resurrection of very old school heist tropes.
