Packed full of violence, shooting, shouting and bad language Den of Thieves is basically about a bunch of police who bend the rules led by Gerald Butler and a shifty bunch of bad guys. For what could have been a generic action picture, the film is well over two hours long and has a decent plot and is well paced. I’ve yet to be impressed with Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson as an actor, maybe it’s because I stand his ‘music’ but here he is very good.
The film is definitely one to annoy your neighbours with so crank up the volume on your telly or home cinema. I rather enjoyed it and it’s a shame I didn’t catch it at my local Cineworld as it was only there about a week. Apparently it made enough money worldwide so a sequel is in the works.
