Den of Thieves Movie Review
My theater experience pretty much sums up what this film is: the lady next to me had her phone flashlight on for the first ten minutes looking for something, and the dude a few rows in front of me snored throughout.
This actually turned out to be a bit of a frustrating one. There's some genuinly solid, B-movie heist stuff at work here. The heists themselves are fun and entertaining. The cast is game, and the 130 minute run time moves at a surprisingly nice pace. Oh yeah, just an FYI, Google has this thing at 90 minutes. It's not. The more you know.
But the plot is a head scratcher. They try to pull off a 'Heat' type relationship with Gerard Butler and one of the robbers, but it's so poorly handled, I was shocked. Once the film ends and all it's cards are on the table, nothing adds up. Nothing. There are also some attempts at giving our characters backstories, and those are pretty lame.
Overall, Den of Thieves will be a solid HBO watch in a year. It's entertaining enough, but when you take a second and think about what you just watched, the whole thing collapses. You can do alot worse for a January wide release, but you can also do alot better (see: The Commuter). Score: 2.5/5
