Den of Thieves

A morass of crass. Gerald Butler is a rogue and troubled Los Angeles police officer chasing after a hyper-violent crew of bank robbers who have, as their ultimate goal, the heretofore-unassailable Los Angeles Federal Reserve Bank from which they hope to "withdraw" $30 million in untraceable cash. Director Christian Gudegast, who co-wrote the screenplay with Paul Scheuring, launches several scattershot, implausible plot lines that never quite come together.

Watch out for: Skewed view of law enforcement, pervasive gun and physical violence, frequent racial slurs, pervasive rough language and profanities

Rated: O, morally offensive; MPAA: R.
