Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Imagine if Heat was remade by a lesser director with a ‘D’ level cast and mixed in with TV’s The Shield and The Usual Suspects… well you’d get Den of Thieves. Add a slice of Gerard Butler giving full on Gerard Butler and you have a film that is oddly more than the sum of it’s parts. Just. Look there’s nothing original or new here, everything is old hat and been done before. BUT it’s fun and ultimately that’s what popcorn cinema is all about. Having fun. So check the brain, grab a beer and enjoy this slice if enjoyable rubbish.
Best Bit: Gerard Butler being good
