We Got This Covered

Takers is an above average heist film and while it could have benefited from an R rating, it is still one of the better movies of the summer.

A fun and engaging film with an exciting young cast making the most out of an uneven script.

It seems the writers thought the essentials of a heist film were a half-baked heist sequence and lots of gunfire. They seem to forget that if there's not a good story and characters in place to carry those extra elements, none of them will matter.

Lessons of Darkness

A mini-Michael Mann effort populated by one-dimensional clichés.

No one's asking a low-priority contemporary robbery movie to be Rififi, but there's such a thing as striving for some kind of quality that will set you apart from the anonymous pack. And no one thought to do that here.

What Culture

Not even a good effort from Matt Dillon -- who seems to play the hard-done-by cop/security guard for the umpteenth time here -- can provide this stodgy outing with the caffeine kick it is sorely in need of.

The film borrows from dozens of classic heist pictures, but adds very little fresh, original or exciting to the mix.

Mindless mayhem perfect for fans of pyrotechnics for pyrotechnics sake!

Laughable subplots about Elba's addicted sister (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) and Dillon's crooked partner (Jay Hernandez) only slow the action, which is all this movie has going for it.

It all crumbles into a series of chaotic gun battles filled with shaky camera moves and excessive noise.

Marks the on-screen collision of Hayden Christensen and Paul Walker, two actors so charmless and wooden this reviewer feared their combined presence would result in the creation of a charisma black hole that could wipe out the universe.

Noisily vacant.

An empty-headed heist movie which makes no effort to endear us to the slick gangsters or the police pursuing them.

You could write ten thousand words about the outlandish cack-handedness of Takers, but I'll limit myself to just seven. Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, rubbish.

There's nothing particularly wrong with Takers, but very little that's right.

A slickly satisfying genre exercise with sufficient thrills, spills and frills to keep you hooked.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

The director of Takers, a try-hard heist movie of clomping unoriginality and self-regard, is labouring under the embarrassing delusion that he's Michael Mann.
