Takers
Matt Dillon’s the only thing going for this heist flick

Takers

Rated:None
Genre:Action

Published 9/1/2010

The Takers are a group of criminals who drive Porsches and live in high-rise condos. They pick and choose heists with discretion. So when old pal Ghost (played by ex-con rapper T.I.) returns from prison with a plan to hijack an armored truck, they're a bit suspicious. But because Ghost used to be part of their crew before he got nabbed during a bank robbery, they decide to go along with him. Not so surprisingly, things don't go exactly as planned — especially since a relentless cop with anger-management issues (Matt Dillon) is hot on their tail. Dillon gives the only credible performance in Takers, but even he has trouble breaking his character from stereotype. Writer-director John Luessenhop builds some suspense in this rudimentary heist flick, but T.I. and much of the cast (including singer Chris Brown and Hayden "Anakin Skywalker" Christensen) are so terrible, Takers ends up like a very poor man's Oceans 11.
