Den of Thieves (15)

Action, Crime, Drama

A gritty crime saga which follows the lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank.

The critical consensus

Despite its pace and fine sense of place, Den of Thieves falls far short of greatness.

The film isn’t ever as slick or ingenious as it needs to be.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 31/01/2018

Analogue in its effects, it’s the kind of throwback that may just win over video-shop nostalgists – though they’ll still have to plough through hunks of unleavened cliche, a dumb-as-nuts final flourish, and so much pec-flexing and armed alpha willy-waggling it often resembles a men’s rights bonding weekend more than it does a movie.

Entertaining enough as it passes by but you don’t believe a word of it.
