Synopsis: “While planning a bank heist, a thief gets trapped between two sets of criminals.”
Look – no one is saying this is going to be a modern heist classic. The crime genre in today’s more family-friendly and warmly earnest (borderline smaltzy/corny) climate just isn’t right for something like a Michael Mann-esque heist movie to really thrive in. Triple 9 couldn’t do it, Logan Lucky couldn’t do it. Hell or High Water, as well as it was received by critics, only made $27MM domestically. So, yeah no one’s expecting the world from Den of Thieves, but we gotta say – just based on the trailer alone having film that’s pretty close to a live action adaptation of Overkill’s Payday: The Heist isn’t the worst thing ever. That honor is probably going to go to whatever hot mess Ready Player One turns out as.
