Den of Thieves ★★★★

75

Groaned at the 2 hour 20 minute run-time, originally, but I was thoroughly invested, not only with Gerald Butler's wacko, muscle-built intensity, but with the crispness of the location-work, the clarity of the action, and the specific character details that make Den of Thieves a full-size meal and not just some tasty leftovers. Shout out to Cliff Martinez for going all-in on the score, as expected.
