Storyline Heading
A notorious group of criminals continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies.

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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Crime - This is an ensemble action/heist drama that may have a bit more female appeal than usual due to the heartthrob-heavy cast. Violent content and language make the film inappropriate for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Takers is an entertaining throw-away - fun but ultimately unmemorable. It's hard to imagine anyone who sees the movie not being at least moderately engaged.

USA Today Full Review
Average Attempts at Quentin Tarantino-esque artiness go overboard. A protracted slow-motion shootout — an overused visual device — relies heavily on imagery of floating feathers amid the bullets, as the volume is pumped up on swelling orchestral music. The poetic aspirations of this slick, empty-headed gangster caper are hard to take.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Longtime friends Gordon Betts (Idris Elba), John Rahway (Paul Walker), A.J. (Hayden Christensen), and the Attica brothers, Jake (Michael Ealy) and Jesse (Chris Brown) finance an extravagant lifestyle filled with hot cars, hotter women and unlimited cash by staging high stakes bank robberies. They avoid being caught by planning to the tiniest detail, leaving no clues and pulling off one—and only one—job per year. 

Their latest successful caper, a $2 million heist, attracts the attention of LAPD Detective Jack Welles (Matt Dillon), an old-school cop who has sacrificed his marriage, his child and any semblance of a personal life for the job. Despite a lack of support from the department, Welles is determined to track down the elusive gang before they strike again. 

As the crew celebrates their latest daring robbery in a chic downtown cocktail lounge, Ghost (T.I.), a former comrade-in-arms recently released from prison, drops in with an irresistible proposal. The only member of the crew arrested for an earlier job, Ghost says he has a plan that will net each of them enough money to hang up their ski masks forever: the robbery of an armored car carrying over $12. But it has to happen in five days or the opportunity will evaporate. 

Although doing another job right away goes against the crew's strict rules of conduct, the lure of all that money proves too great and they decide to risk a daring daylight hold-up on a crowded downtown Los Angeles street. With just a few days to prepare, the crew sets in motion an intricate scheme that unknowingly puts them on a collision course with a group of ruthless Russian mobsters. 

In the meantime, Welles is unraveling a complex web of evidence that takes him from a small time arms dealer to the Russians and finally… crew leader Gordon Betts. With the clock ticking down, ancient rivalries, unexpected double-crosses, unknown enemies and just plain bad luck complicate the plan, resulting in a deadly showdown no one saw coming.
