Couple of comments: this is the directing debut of screenwriter Christian Gudegast, who previously gave us "London Has Fallen". "Den of Thieves" is very much in the same vein as "London Has Fallen", an action movie that is bent on winning you over with hair-raising shoot-outs and heists. The premise of the movie, namely why would the robbers rob, and then take off with, an empty money truck is actually quite clever and intriguing. Alas, it isn't long that we get sidetracked with far too many tangents that do not advance the core story line and dramatically slow down the movie. There is zero reason for this movie to be creeping towards a running time of 2 1/2 min., and the movie would've benefited greatly from an editing trim to bring it in around 2 hrs. On the other hand, the movie benefits greatly from Gerard Butler's performance, who seems he was born to plays this rough-and-tumble character of the corrupt-but-meaning -to-do-well LA cop. I can't say the same thing about Pablo Schreiber who, as the main villain Ray Merrimen, lacks color and personality. Last but certainly not least, there is a delightful electronic score courtesy of composer Cliff Martinez, delivering his usual top-notch electronic noodling (check: "Drive", "Only God Forgives", etc.).
"Den of Thieves" opened strongly at the box office in January. For whatever reason, I didn't get around to seeing it until this past weekend, a month into its run in the theater. The Sunday matinee screening where I saw this at was attended quite nicely, somewhat to my surprise. Looks like this movie benefited from good word-of-mouth. I enjoyed it for what it was, nothing more, nothing less, but tighter editing would've made it even better. I encourage you to check out "Den of "Thieves", be it in the theater, on Amazon Instant Video or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
Ice Cube's son has a major role in this. He's pretty good, actually. But the headlining star is Gerard Butler, who hams it up almost to the point of parody.
Schreiber's team is attempting a bank heist, and Butler's team of cops are trying to take them down. There, it's that simple. Is it fun? To a certain degree, yes. Worth watching once, for sure. Not sure if I'd watch it a lot if I owned a copy, though.

This movie is full of cliches. It is as tactically sound as the "Hurt Locker".Read more
