(Hayden Christensen), and brothers Jake (Michael Ealy) and Jesse (Chris Brown) Attica successfully complete their latest heist and lead a life of luxury while planning their next job. When Ghost (Tip T.I. Harris), a former member of their team, is released from prison he convinces the group to strike an armored car carrying $20 million.

The first and last exchange between Idris Elba's character and Paul Walker's character are exactly the same, albeit the lines are switched the second time around. See more »
Before the armored car heist, John puts an automatic rifle together with a scope. He then sights it in. Then between shots of him during the scene, a set of scope cups is alternately on and off the scope. With the scope cups on he wouldn't be able to see through the scope. See more »
The best way for criminals to avoid the curse of the "one last job" is to quit on their second last job.
Unfortunately, the retiring robbers in this thriller went ahead with their last heist. What's more they allowed their recently paroled comrade to organize it.
After he is released from prison, Ghost (T.I.) wastes no time in contacting his former crew (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen, Michael Ealy and Chris Brown) about putting something together.
Although they are skeptical, his former cohorts ultimately decide to join Ghost in holding up an armoured truck.
Meanwhile, a persistent police officer (Matt Dillon) gets wind of their plans and tries to abate them.
While the story lacks character development and originality, Takers does boast some decent shootouts.
As for the best way to rob an armoured truck driver: stand outside the bank in a giant sack with a $ on it. (Yellow Light)
