At the 1hour 14minute mark, Merrimen proceeds to tell Donnie to "always keep your finger off the trigger until you're gonna shoot somebody, if and when that happens, safety selector switch. One for semi, two for full auto." Earlier in the movie it was stated that Donnie did 1.5 years in the Marine Corps. With Merrimen being a former MARSOC Marine he would have no reason to go over that with Donnie. Aside from the significant amount of time being trained on the M16 platform at boot camp, Donnie would have attended either the Infantry Training Battalion or Marine Combat Training where he would have dedicated even more time to learning that weapon platform. Merrimen would have already known Donnie is more than proficient with that rifle. See more »
I went into Den of Thieves with low expectations, and walked out pleasently surprised with this movie! Im a huge heist movie fan and Michael Mann's 'Heat' is one of my favorite movies of all time. And while its true that Den of Thieves takes almost TOO MUCH inspiration from HEAT, it certainly delivers some unexpected turns that make the movie unpredictible and not generic. Sure, there are a lot of heist films out there, but I found Den of Thieves to bring some new elements into the genre that i have never seen, which i thought was pretty great. I was actually surprised with Gerard Butler's performance in this movie, he was actually REALLY good and played the role with commitment. The same goes for the other cast members, Great Acting! What really sold this movie for me, was the incredible action sequences. They are directed fantastically, and the firearms in the movie sound robust and authoritative, which gives the film a hard edge that i found to love. There are a few scenes in the film that feel out of place and some of the character development isn't really there, but overall i had a blast watching this movie and plan to see it again. Definately Recommend to anyone a fan of the genre.
