Don't listen to the BS reviews, this is one of the years best movies!! (by mrlasvegas2u)
I went to see this movie on a friday night with low expectations, thinking it will be an average fluff heist action movie. Rotten tomatoes critics gave it 38%, and as usual, they are full of crap, the movie is really good. That's why the rotten tomatoes audience score is 87%. First time director Christian Gudegast writer of screen plays such as A MAN APART, LONDON HAS FALLEN did an really good job, and looked like a veteran director. Gerard Butler was fantastic, 50 cents and O'shea Jackson Jr. Ice Cube's son were pretty good, but the break out star of this movie will be this <more>
guy named PABLO SCHREIBER paternal half brother of Liev Schreiber . He was the main bad guy, and his acting will blow your mind. He was a bona fide bad ass, and I am sure we will see him in a lot of other movies to come. He has definitely arrived. He also acted in 13 HOURS, Orange is the New Black. Pablo will be the breakout star from this movie. If you want a non-stop edge of the seat action movie, with a huge twist, GO watch this. Don't listen to the haters that are miserable with their lives, and can't ever appreciate anything good. It's definitely one of the best heist movies I have seen in a long time. Loved the twist in the end.
One of the best of the new year. (by nermalstanley-58868)
I have wanted to see this film since they kept me awake when making this movie. I live two blocks from the Angel City Donuts.This movie is two hours twenty minutes long but did not seem long at all. The acting is very good. The actors are well cast and the movie holds your interest for the entire time. Gerard Butler gives a great performance as the head of the sneriff's unit. 50cent and O'Shea Jackson show they can act well and I look forward to future projects from them.Like I previously said, this movie is well worth your time. Had this been released in LA prior to the end of the <more>
year, this movie might receive several oscar nods. Well worth yourtime.
Really great movie! Reminds me for the movie "Heat" with De Niro and Pacino which was great as well! The end of the movie was so unexpected,which makes it that high rated and gives us hope for Den Of Thieves 2.
Great movie ruined by a silly ending (by thebricks)
Absolutely loved the movie from start to finish. Every actor does a great job in this film. O'Shea Jackson, Paolo Schrieber, Gerard Butler did an incredible job. From start to finish, it was a riveting movie. If I ever rewatch it though, I'm going to ignore the end. It was terrible, a ripoff of The Usual Suspects. I don't even think it worked either, nor did it make sense. They had so much to work with and they just didn't follow up to create a great ending. There is an aspect of Gerard Butler's character and his team that is never answered in the movie. It's just <more>
dropped, but it was an element of the character that differentiated this film from other heist movies.It's one of the best heist movies I've seen since Heat and Ocean's Eleven, but the ending was just maddening. It would be a classic otherwise, and it's a shame.
Going back to the essence of classic action movies in a convincing way (by kluseba)
Den of Thieves might be a stereotypical movie about tough guys trying to outsmart one another but it's a really entertaining ride and worth the praise it gets.First of all, the story is fast-paced without any lengths. Each character is introduced appropriately, the tension slowly rises until a gripping climax and the final twist is quite impressive as well.Secondly, the acting performances are stellar. Gerard Butler fully impresses as tough and pitiless detective who convinces with unshakable determination but also shows his flaws with his aggressive recklessness. Pablo Schreiber offers a <more>
very solid performance as strong, intelligent and ambitious criminal who turns out to be much more complex than meets the eye. The secret protagonist of the movie is O'Shea Jackson Junior's character who goes through a spectacular development from being a curious bartender, becoming involved in a gang of highly trained criminals and ending up what seems to be an undercover collaborator with the local police force. Each character has important flaws and strengths which makes everyone of them particularly authentic. Identifying a clear protagonist or antagonist is nearly impossible which sets this movie apart from other genre flicks.Thirdly, the action sequences are quite spectacular, including car chases, gun fights and hand-to-hand combat but these elements are never overused and keep the movie diversified yet credible.Fourthly, the main heist is truly spectacular and nerve-firing as the clever criminals face quite a few serious challenges. The whole sequence lasts about half an hour but feels less than half as long because it's so gripping.Fifthly, despite being an action movie, this film doesn't overuse special effects, employs lighting techniques smoothly and utilizes calm camera work. Stylistically, this movie goes back to the great action movies of the eighties which is quite refreshing and not headache-inducing. Great action movies don't need shaky cameras and zombies but should stick to the simplest ingredients to fully convince. This is what Den of Thieves accomplishes very successfully.In the end, watching Den of Thieves was a surprisingly positive experience. I haven't watched such an overall enjoyable action movie in a very long time. Fans of action cinema with tough guys in the key of the Die Hard franchise just can't get around this film. I certainly don't aim to sound controversial but the only thing to point out is that this movie was made by men for men and might appear somewhat stereotypical to most women. On the other side, it's just the other way around with films like Pitch Perfect. If this movie seems to be right down your alley, you will enjoy it for sure but if it's not your type of movie, just ignore it.
Absolutely brilliant. A total guy film. Gerard Butler Big Nick is - as Gerard himself mentions it in Kimmel - "Silverback Gorilla". Pure alpha male in a group of bunch of alpha males.He soon meets his match in the form of Pablo Schreiber's character Merriman. Another totally buff, totally shredded, former Special Forces who is incredibly smart and highly intelligent.Basically the movie is a tic-tac back and forth between their lives' portrayals with some glimpses of 50's life, O Shea and others'. I get that most people are trying to compare it to Heat, but for me <more>
it was more in line with Training Day.Now frankly, I went in with a Law Abiding Citizen mentality about a self-righteous cop s who break all the rules, acts as vigilante and makes their point proven with unconventional tactics.It was actually nothing like that. It is heist film with a brilliant misdirection. It delivers all the macho, high octane action. There are some subtleties and details that highly stands out:-O Shea's nostrils flaring after being harassed and bullied loved this touch of microexpression ever since I saw in the trailer -The way the robbers step in or wade in. Almost as if wearing fins and they first slide in and step in with one foot and then the body follows. Of course, 50 and Gerard said how they trained to get the movement down in military fashion.-Sushi bar scene, the Rowland Heights scene which truly depicts how a real Alpha carries himself was phenomenal. Loved the tension building and flaring and the subdued suspense and of course the breakup scene was strong-The muscle of Butler and Schreiber in the final scene with each sinewy muscle mass pumping was brilliant.. Probably they pumped irons before shooting those scenes.-Merriman character became a surprise favorite of mineMerriman character is not that much of a downright and outright alpha. Not a grey man either. He is just trying to have a meal and chill with his "family" or makes his point proven in the shooting range without reacting directly to Butler from getting his paper target riddled center mass. Possible spoiler alert Now as far as the spoiler or twist. Well if the movie had no twist it actually would have been boring. Another Mann-ish drama about real life grit. Although putting the twist at the end may sacrifice some of the content and make it 'cheesy' as some might object but THAT actually makes it more unique, original and movie-y.Listen. Reviews are subjective. C---pola like Wonder Woman - which is comparable to cringey chick flick - gets rave reviews by "stalwart" critics and these same critics lambaste this movie.Don't listen to anyone else. Watch a movie, judge it for yourself and then you'd have much better understanding and appreciation how life operates.For me art is something which "I" want to enjoy and savor again and again and again and again...This movie passes it on all accounts. A movie doesn't have to Oscar nominated with Brandeberg Concerto or discussing pilpul of Rauschenberg in Annie Hall-y style to get my respect.All "I" care is what makes me happy. That is art for me. What "I" want to watch again and again and again..Hence the solid 9 stars.
I went into Den of Thieves with low expectations, and walked out pleasently surprised with this movie! Im a huge heist movie fan and Michael Mann's 'Heat' is one of my favorite movies of all time. And while its true that Den of Thieves takes almost TOO MUCH inspiration from HEAT, it certainly delivers some unexpected turns that make the movie unpredictible and not generic. Sure, there are a lot of heist films out there, but I found Den of Thieves to bring some new elements into the genre that i have never seen, which i thought was pretty great. I was actually surprised with Gerard <more>
Butler's performance in this movie, he was actually REALLY good and played the role with commitment. The same goes for the other cast members, Great Acting! What really sold this movie for me, was the incredible action sequences. They are directed fantastically, and the firearms in the movie sound robust and authoritative, which gives the film a hard edge that i found to love. There are a few scenes in the film that feel out of place and some of the character development isn't really there, but overall i had a blast watching this movie and plan to see it again. Definately Recommend to anyone a fan of the genre.
A fun, well paced movie that isn't pretending to be something it's not (by naregian)
You can't enter a movie like this expecting some cinematic masterpiece. If you do so, you'll be obviously disappointed. Otherwise, it's a completely entertaining and fun ride through some surprisingly complex characters and an unexpectedly intricate game of cat and mouse.There have been some comparisons of this movie to the movie Heat, and I think they may be somewhat warranted. OBVIOUSLY, this does not hold the gravitas of a mid-90's DeNiro/Pacino face-off, but plot structure, pacing, character development and the Los Angeles backdrop were all very familiar. At the core, you <more>
have Pablo Schreiber, who is 1 or 2 decent movies away from being given a real shot at a career defining role. He led this film effortlessly and truly gives you a very raw sense of character. Gerard Butler plays Gerard Butler and convincingly so. The two square off for 140 minutes and it's surely fun to watch.The 140 minute runtime seems to have garnered some attention from reviewers. Yeah, it's long, but it really doesn't feel that way. The pace of the film is stellar, and you never really feel any "look down at your phone" moments. The heist movie is often times full of overdone clichés and unconvincing "suspense" but for some reason this film was able to put a fresh twist on everything you see. If you've seen a trailer for the film, you'll be very happy with it. I think this is a case of extremely good marketing and a trailer can make or break your audience's expectations for a film. From the trailer, you see a crew of goons led by some wannabe badass and a crew of cops trying to intimidate them and take them down. The trailer doesn't give you much of a glimpse at anything more than elementary storyline, which is why if you see this film, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Had more fun in a theater than I can remember in recent years. 8/10
A one time watch crime thriller with awesome gun shot sequences n a clever but dangerous heist. (by Fella_shibby)
Bank robbery, gun shot action sequences, trailer of this film n Gerard Butler, all these were suffice for me to view this n i was not at all disappointed. Saw this in a theatre. Comparisons with Heat n The Town will b inevitable but this movie is a solid crime thriller with enuff action/gun shot sequences n a dangerous n clever heist. The final shoot-out scene will satisfy fans of Miami Vice the shoot-out scene . Another good aspect is that the pacing is good and it's never dull. Pablo Schreiber Preservation was convincing as an ex military leader turned into a robber. Gerard Butler <more>
has a solid screen presence. O'Shea Jackson Jr. gav a solid performance spitting image of his father Ice Cube . Action fans will not b disappointed. Looking forward to its sequel.
