Takers follows a group of professional robbers whose lives are interrupted by the release of one of their former ally, Ghost, who got caught after he was shot. Ghost’s appearance brings another job to them – the heist of $30 million from an armoured car. Even though some members are wary of Ghost, they take the job anyway not knowing that the detectives are closing on to them from their previous heist.
The movie boasts quite a cast – Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Hayden Christensen, Chris Brown, Tip ‘T.I’ Harris and Matt Dillion. I think for this kind of “heist movies”, you mostly watch to see how the heist goes and what they do to avoid capture. In this case, it was arrogance and carelessness that led to their exposed identities. The final heist was interesting because one chase led to the other and there were so many guns! 3 out of 5 stars.
