    Den of Thieves is such a dumb misunderstanding of the genres in which it plays, such a loud, interminable shart of unmitigated machismo, such a heavy-handed rip-off of Heat and The Usual Suspects and even Ocean’s Eleven (and maybe even The Fast and the Furious, but for scumbags) that it feels anachronistic on arrival, the kind of melodramatic, pulpy studio action flick that doesn’t get made anymore because it shouldn’t. show more

    Clichés combined with poor dialogue and badly drawn characters that lack dimension bog down the heist movie Den of Thieves, which fails to sustain, or generate, any real tension. show more

    Despite its technical gloss and effective performances, Den of Thieves never manage to feel other than hopelessly derivative. show more
