‘Den of Thieves’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Gerard Butler, Pablo Schreiber, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Dawn Olivieri, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Evan Jones, Cooper Andrews, Lewis Tan, Maurice Compte, Mo McRae | Written by Christian Gudegast, Paul Scheuring | Directed by Christian Gudegast

Gerard Butler and Pablo Schreiber star in this off-the-boil Heat knock-off from writer-director Christian Gudegast, the screenwriter of London Has Fallen, here making his directing debut. However, while there are a handful of strong moments in the film, it ultimately falls short of its ambitions, thanks to some shoddy story-telling choices.

Set in present-day Los Angeles, the film centres on two grizzled hombres on either side of the law: swaggering cop “Big Nick” Flanagan (Gerard Butler) and criminal mastermind Ray Merrimen (Pablo Schreiber), whose opening gambit is to steal an empty armoured car in broad daylight. When Nick leans on bartender-slash-getaway-driver Donnie (O’Shea Jackson Jr.) for information, he learns that Merrimen has a big heist planned,

Stars: Gerard Butler, Pablo Schreiber, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Dawn Olivieri, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Evan Jones, Cooper Andrews, Lewis Tan, Maurice Compte, Mo McRae | Written by Christian Gudegast, Paul Scheuring | Directed by Christian Gudegast

However, while there are a handful of strong moments in the film, it ultimately falls short of its ambitions, thanks to some shoddy story-telling choices.

Movie Review – Den of Thieves (2018)

Den of Thieves, 2018.

Directed by Christian Gudegast.

Starring Gerard Butler, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Pablo Schreiber, Evan Jones, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Dawn Olivieri, Brian Van Holt, Jordan Bridges, Eric Braeden, Maurice Compte, Sonya Balmores, Cooper Andrews, Meadow Williams, Kaiwi Lyman, Jay Dobyns, Nick Loeb, Mo McRae, and Jermaine Rivers.

Synopsis:

As a series of heists escalate across the L.A. landscape, we get to see both sides of the law; riding with Nick O’Brien (Gerard Butler) and his group of Semper Fi elite unit cops, and Ray Merrimen (Pablo Schreiber) with his tight-knit crew of career criminals. Den of Thieves chronicles their respective preparations during the build up to an ambitious take down of the Federal Reserve Bank.

The only director capable of remaking Heat was Michael Mann, whose crime-epic was a redo of his own 1989 TV movie L.A. Takedown. With Den of Thieves it appears that the

Second Opinion – Den of Thieves (2018)

Den of Thieves, 2018.

Directed by Christian Gudegast.

Starring Gerard Butler, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Pablo Schreiber, Evan Jones, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Dawn Olivieri, Brian Van Holt, Jordan Bridges, Eric Braeden, Maurice Compte, Sonya Balmores, Cooper Andrews, Meadow Williams, Kaiwi Lyman, Jay Dobyns, Nick Loeb, Mo McRae, and Jermaine Rivers.

Synopsis:

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.

If there’s one thing Den of Thieves is good for, it’s reassuring audiences that writer/director Christian Gudegast has *definitely* seen Michael Mann’s Heat. No question. Gudegast undoubtedly flipped Heat on one night while writing this rugged thug cons versus thug cops standoff, which lead to connective ties in multiple scene by scene comparisons. Inspiration,

Den of Thieves, 2018.

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.

Believe it or not, I’m always up for a cheesy action romp headlined by Gerard Butler, as he knows his wheelhouse and the extent of his capabilities as an actor. It has gotten to a point where he elevates mostly terrible concepts into dumb fun. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Den of Thieves (the directorial debut from Christian Gudecast,
