Movie Review: ‘Den of Thieves’

January 25, 2018 at 9:08 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

The trailer for Den of Thieves looked interesting, but I went into this one without much in the way of expectations. I walked away very surprised at how much I liked this film. Yes, it’s a heist movie with criminals and action, but this one captured a little bit of the magic of movies like Heat. It follows both the good guys and the bad guys, telling each side of the story as the criminals try to pull off their biggest heist while the cops try to stop them. It’s cat and mouse as they play off each other and strive to outwit their opponents. It’s also evenly matched.

On one side you’ve got Pablo Schreiber playing a criminal mastermind leading his crew of ex-military convicts in a lead up to taking down the Federal Reserve. On the other side, you’ve got Gerard Butler giving one of his best performances yet as he disappears into the role of a rough edged sheriff leading a major crimes team. This movie does a great job of focusing on the characters and rewarding the audiences with bursts of action, suspenseful heists, and a surprisingly good story. It’s not completely unique as there really are a lot of similarities with Heat, but it plays out well. It’s worth checking out.

I give it a five out of five metal bikinis.
