The film was in development for roughly fourteen years, where director Christian Gudegast and a writing partner had a blind deal with New Line Cinema in 2003. The project was also later supposed to be distributed by the now-defunct Relativity Media at one point as well. See more »
In the shoot out while the traffic is stopped and Ray Merrimen sets up the M249 (SAW) on the hood and pulls back on the cocking handle assembly, two sounds are heard.. Normally when a closed bolt weapon's cocking handle is pulled back it will make two sounds, the first would be the bolt being pulled back and a second sound when the bolt closes as it chambers the round. However the M249 is a gas-operated weapon that fires from the open bolt position, so there would only be a single sound made when the cocking handle is pulled back locking the bolt into the open position and it will only close when the trigger is pulled.

"Den of Thieves" is an entertaining crime film with the showdown of Los Angeles County Sheriff "Big Nick" O'Brien and his team, and the criminal Ray Merrimen and his skilled gang of bank robbers. The plot is full of action and twists and the identity of the mastermind is a great surprise. The pace is perfect and the viewer does not feel the 140 minutes running time. The shootout recalls "Heat" and O'Brien´s personal drama with his wife is pointless and only a filler in the story. "Den of Thieves" is not a film for intellectuals and the target audiences will be very satisfied. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Covil de Ladrões" ("Den of Thieves")
