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.

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

This take on the classic cop v robbers formula makes for handsome, smart and fast-paced entertainment.

Stylishly directed thriller with some terrific action sequences and mostly strong performances, but the cheese factor is ridiculously high, the characters are thinly drawn and it's morally dubious to say the least.

as long as you understand exactly what kind of hack cinema you are getting into, Takers can be pretty fun.

Luessenhop gets good performances but bobbles the many gunfights and action scenes ...

It's no Heat, but it does take in a small haul of thrills.

Takers refines a genre that has been hollowed-out by the cold repetitions of such cliché movies as Soderbergh's Oceans franchise...

Not a fresh idea in the script, not a fresh character, not a fresh stunt, some will feel taken by Takers. Others will find it a decent but, not great, popcorn movie.

[S]lyly set[s] up a dichotomy that is at once strange, compelling, and so pertinent that it becomes tragic...

'Takers' works because of its solid pace and action scenes, including one chase sequence that will have the audience rooting for both the cops and robbers. It's the perfect popcorn film to end the summer season.

A serviceable, passable, entertaining heist movie until it collapses under its own weight towards the end of the movie.

Solid direction, an almost-terrific story, good ensemble acting and fine behind the camera work make the trip to the air conditioned theater on these dog days of summer worthwhile.
