Takers, the new gangster movie starring Matt Dillon and Paul Walker, hits theaters nationwide August 27, 2010.
A notorious group of criminals 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 who is hell-bent on solving the case.
The cast of Takers includes Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris, Chris Brown and Zoe Saldana. Takers is directed by John Luessenhop.
Takers got favorable ratings overall.
“The stunt work is amazing, and the pace is breathless enough to keep one watching right up to the somewhat ambiguous conclusion.” -Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
“A crackling crime drama assembled from a scrap heap of hoary cliches, Takers proves that everything old can sometimes really be new again.” -Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
“Leaning very heavily on style and attitude, the film won’t win a single point for originality, but director John Luessenhop keeps the action rolling along at a steady clip.” -Tim Grierson, Screen International
