"Den of Thieves" is an entertaining crime film with the showdown of Los Angeles County Sheriff "Big Nick" O'Brien and his team, and the criminal Ray Merrimen and his skilled gang of bank robbers. The plot is full of action and twists and the identity of the mastermind is a great surprise. The pace is perfect and the viewer does not feel the 140 minutes running time. The shootout recalls "Heat" and O'Brien´s personal drama with his wife is pointless and only a filler in the story. "Den of Thieves" is not a film for intellectuals and the target audiences will be very satisfied. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Covil de Ladrões" ("Den of Thieves")
