Product Description

This high-stakes action thriller stars Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy and Tip “T.I.” Harris. After pulling off a spectacular series of brilliantly planned bank robberies, a notorious team of professional criminals attempts one last heist, a once-in-a-lifetime job with a $25 million payoff. And all that stands in their way is a cop hell-bent on doing whatever it takes to solve the case and bring the Takers down. Chris Brown and Hayden Christensen costar in an adrenaline-rushed thrill ride packed with twists and turns.

Amazon.com

Slick, stylish, and flush with studliness, Takers follows a cadre of thieves as they plot a tricky new heist. The movie has two strengths: it deftly juggles three intertwining plot lines (the mechanics of the heist itself; the maneuvering of the police hunting the thieves; and the scheming of a former member of the gang who feels betrayed) and it walks a fine line between just enough realism to make us care about the thieves (the performances are effectively understated) and just enough absurdity to make everything entertaining (each of the guys has his own fancy car!). It doesn't hurt that the man flesh is all ridiculously handsome (Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Chris Brown, Jan Hernandez, Hayden Christensen, even old-school hunk Matt Dillon) and smashingly tailored in swank suits. And there are a handful of high-energy sequences--including a chase that features zippy parkour climbing stunts through moving traffic--that give the story clichés a nice jolt of pep. All in all, Takers probably won't stick in your memory very long, but it's good fun while it lasts. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
The heist genre has seen a number of films released over the past few years, most notably THE ITALIAN JOB. But there have been a number of others to follow including the recently released TAKERS.

The film revolves around a group of professional thieves who are just finishing up from their latest job, a bank job where they scored big and no one got hurt. These guys try to make sure no one gets hurt and that the plans are well thought out and executed. In return for their heists going well, they aren't charged with murder and the money they take makes them wealthy men.

As this story unfolds another one opens with the release from prison of Dalonte Rivers (T.I.) aka Ghost. Ghost just finished doing time after being caught in a previous job by this same group. In return for his silence they've held onto his share and kept an opening for him. Returned to collect on that debt, he comes to them with a new job.

The group is hesitant to do so having just completed one, but the sure thing information he provides them makes them consider it. The biggest problem is that they have just five days to prepare. And five days not only gives you little time to be ready, but no chance at all to make sure that everything will run as smooth as it has in the past.

While the thieves are preparing their new target police officer Jack Welles (Matt Dillon) is searching for them. Assigned the case, he and his partner are following every clue possible. At the same time Jack is dodging an Internal Affairs officer, fearing he will be reprimanded for accusations of excessive violence while apprehending a criminal. His focus is the bank job and he won't be deterred in his pursuit of the crew.

If you liked the Bruce Willis series of Die Hard movies then this movie is for you. High action with a good story line and interesting characters, on both sides of the law. Good ending with a surprise.

This is definitely a suspense movie. I was not familiar w/the majority of the actors, but they seem to blend very well. It's not about your "corner-store" robbers, but a group of high-level theives--similar to Ocean's Eleven type. There was something going on all the time & moments that left you guessing, but quite enjoyable.

I loved this movie in the theater, so owning it for the low price was a deal for me. I loved the character andthe actors who portrayed them. I could watch Chris perform his stunts over and over; great atheletic abilities. I have watched it three times since it arrived.

I did. A story of a group of bank robbers find their multi-million dollar plan interrupted by a hard-boiled detective played by Matt Dillon. Of course the cast is great, the acting is great. . so I'm glad I took my daughters advice and purchased this before seeing it, I'm pleased.

I have to say that besides the huge cast, I enjoyed the movie. It was action pack there were a couple of times when the plot was predictable but was still a good movie. My friends disagree with me but I still like it. The movie was action packed with a plot that was easy to follow and told a decent story.

***Spoilers*** The best part of the movie is when Hayden Christensen (the atrocity that was anakin) gets blasted in the chest by a shotgun. Absolutely awesome.
