Synopsis

“Takers,” directed by John Luessenhop, revolves around a notorious group of criminals (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I., Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective (Matt Dillon) who is hell-bent on solving the case.

Dove Review

“Takers” is a fast-paced action film with your usual twists and turns, robbers stealing from other thieves, cops chasing the bad guys and then the bad guys chase each other. Rather predictable as films of this type usually are.

Heavy language and adult situations permeate this pic making it unwatchable for the family. Dove is therefore unable to award our Seal to this film. At least 41 “s” words, 1 slang term used for sex, 8 a—- (4 used with “hole”), 4 d’s, 4 h’s, 3 S.O.B.s, 11 uses of “GD” and 1 use each of “JC,” “Jeez” and “O/G”.
