‘Den of Thieves‘ is coming to theaters on January 19, 2018 and will star Gerard Butler (300), 50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black), and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton). The film is set in Los Angeles and focuses on a top notch team of the LA Sheriff’s department and the most successful bank robber gang in the state. The robbery crew plans to rob the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Los Angeles in this movie. Will there be twists? Will there be turns? Will there be people on the “inside”?
You bet your ass, there will be. This looks like a watered-down version of ‘Bad Boys‘ and bank robberies. Tons of car chases, shoot outs, and one-liners. I just hope Butler kicks someone and yells “This is Sparta.” O’Shea Jackson Jr. on the other hand looks amazing in this and exactly like his father Ice Cube. It’s uncanny. I doubt this movie will do anything that you haven’t seen before, but you just might have some early year popcorn fun with it. The director is Christian Gudegast, which marks this film as his film debut as a director.
Prior to this, Gudegast wrote that terrible Vin Diesel vehicle ‘A Man Apart‘, which made me laugh all the way to the bank. Well, maybe not the bank, but to Shipley’s donuts, where I ordered a baker’s dozen Boston Cream pastries and punished myself by eating every single one of them for seeing ‘A Man Apart‘. The other movie Gudegast wrote was ‘London Has Fallen‘, which made friends out of him and Butler.
Next thing you know, they are working on this film, which is more or less the same as the previous movie mentioned above. Still, for a movie that comes out in Early 2018, I can see myself laughing, rolling my eyes, and eating another baker’s dozen donuts after this one. Enjoy the trailer.
