Take it or leave it…

Takers review

Put it head-to-head with Heat and Takers seems lightweight, a baby-faced brat in a Mann’s world.

It walks the walk – Idris Elba and his crew taking down a bank in balaclavas; Matt Dillon’s weather-beaten cop on the case – but it’s easily seduced by its own stylised spectacle.

“That was some Bourne Ultimatum shit,” jokes rapper-turned-actor T.I. at one point.

Pity, since there are neat character beats, from Dillon taking his daughter on a stakeout to Elba dealing with a crackhead sis.

Ultimately, though? Take it or leave it…
