    After sitting through Takers with my stomach rearranged by hyperactive camera spazzing, I hereby formally request all directors and cinematographers to just get a grip already and STOP. WIGGLING. THE CAMERA. show more

    The dialogue is clichéd and laughable. It's a film far more concerned with style - architectural, vehicular and wardrobe-related - than substance. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    The stunt work is amazing, and the pace is breathless enough to keep one watching right up to the somewhat ambiguous conclusion. show more

    It comes to the party overdressed and still fails to make an impression. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    A crackling crime drama assembled from a scrap heap of hoary cliches, Takers proves that everything old can sometimes really be new again. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The style feels a little like that of the recently departed TV show "24," albeit without Kiefer Sutherland, the split screens, and the ticking clock. show more

    Noisy, unsubtle, but it gets the job done. show more

    You could make a worse choice for a late- summer popcorn movie than Takers, a Michael Mann-ish heist thriller with a pulse-pounding foot chase and some terrific stunt work offsetting its hackneyed plot and dialogue. show more

    The new heist movie Takers is surprisingly okay. show more

    The performers are given stock types to play, and Elba and Dillon, at least, can do a little with that. show more

    I liked it so well, I saw it 7 times..... I\'d see it again! Critics don\'t know anything about rating a movie....

    I asw the movie and I like it . T.I. was himself , Chris Brown was what I expected , Idris is a true actor & Paul Walker is too sexy for words. It wasn\'t the usual with \"oh the good guys win every time.\" It made you see with a purpose , even the best laid plans can go awry

    Really, realy bad! Bad acting, bad character development, bad story line, and cheesy music score. Kind of a Hip-Hop/Gangsta Rapper version of "Oceans Eleven" series. DO ******** your time or money on this(,) Dog (double entendre intended).

    This was great. I love the men in this movie. Really handsome and fine men. Thanks for a great movie. Idris is my man. Love the real voice.

    Bad acting and extremely predictable. If you are a teen around my age and you follow the actors you may want to see it, but don't save your money.
