Not that great of a movie. About below average. 4/10 score.
14 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I received a bit of hype before seeing Takers. I'm not going to say it is an awful movie. Takers has a bit of style in the reels that's for sure. Just no substance to carry that style.The film is hip in its looks, almost like its wanting to follow a trend. This pop culture stuff is a cliché that films use for success when released over and over.

With some substance in the plot though, it really makes the difference between bad and alright. This ones a bad one and that's unfortunate considering that its really a young stylish fast cash grab for the box office. Only tomorrow to be gone and forgotten.

Not that great of a movie. About below average. 4/10 score.
