Editor’s Pick: ‘Den Of Thieves’ Starring 50-Cent hit shelves

The inevitable clash between an unbeatable crew addicted to the heists and an elite unit of Los Angeles detectives comes to a head in Den of Thieves, arrived on Digital April 10, 2018 and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on yesterday April 24, 2018, from STX films and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

DEN OF THIEVES is a gritty Los Angeles crime saga which follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Department and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as they plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of Downtown Los Angeles.

Directed by Christian Gudegast(London Has Fallen), the film blurs the lines between good and evil by examining the rivalry between a police unit, led by Gerard Butler (London Has Fallen), and a crew of career criminals featuring Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Trying), Pablo Schreiber(13 Hours), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton) and Evan Jones (A Million Ways to Die in the West).

I haven’t felt the fire of a Colors, Boyz N Da Hood, or Training Day in quite some time. Den Of Thieves brought that back for me and I found myself stuck in my spot. O’Shea Jr. makes a nice debut and holds his own with the on-screen experience of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Visually, even though the scenes are familiar, there are some layers there and you have to watch the background players to get the full effect…that makes it a great movie to me…it’s on my #goto list. ~ JD
