Taking on the classic American heist crime thriller story, Den of Thieves is an action-packed film sprinkled with satirical comedy.
The film is co-written, produced and directed by Christian Gudegast starring Gerard Butler, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Pablo Schreiber, 50 Cent and Evan Jones to name a few.
After the robbery of an empty armoured truck, Major Crimes squad lead by Nick Flanagan (Butler) are called in to find the crew responsible and solve the mystery as to why the empty truck was stolen. While trying to dodge the erratic antics of Detective Flanagan, the crew plan their next hit, the Federal Reserve Bank of Los Angeles.
The film kept a good pace and was generally an entertaining watch. Gerard Butler absolutely nailed his role and personally I would like to see him in more roles of this calibre. Filled with all the good stuff, shoot outs, fight scenes, suspense and a great story, Den of Thieves is worth the watch.
