Den of Thieves ★★★★½

Is the traffic-jam shootout officially the 21st century’s cowboy standoff?

I found this really engaging. “Oh, it just takes from Heat and Inside Man.” Well, Heat took from White Heat, and Inside Man is far from original (Dog Day Afternoon). The moral gray areas are interesting, Schreiber and Butler are just eating the script, and the action is immensely well shot. 
I forget the importance of placement, coverage and continuity to a gunfight until I watch something like Die Hard 4 and have no clue what the fuck is happening.

Can’t wait for the bad sequel!
