TAKERS is one shaky mess of a heist (review)

Rating:  (Bad)

I saw Takers with a theater full of rowdy, loud women. Midnight showings often bring out the dedicated and hardcore, but these ladies came to see one man. No, not heartthrob Paul Walker, not Michael Ealy, not T.I. They came to see Chris Brown. The moment Brown hit the screen, all I could hear were "woo"s, "aww yeahs", and "mmm mmm"s. Pretty hilarious, really. The ladies made the same sounds later on when Idris Elba (Stringer Bell from The Wire) got out of bed in his underwear. This was not a quiet experience at the theater. 

It's fitting that Takers is about as overblown as its audience. Like all urban heists, all the pieces are in place.

Trailer Roundup: Little Fockers, Red (awesome), The Social Network, Predators, The Divide, a new Twilight: Eclipse clip, Takers, and more

(Before I begin, do these noses look weird to you? Maybe it's just me, but this is not the most flattering photo of the Eclipse triangle.)

Jeesh. I was complaining last Tuesday about how many trailers there were. Now there are even more! I may have to get more selective in the coming weeks. I've highlighted some interesting trailers and there's a list at the end of the post for some others, should you care to take a look. Most notably, The Social Network teaser is here, which is a semi-accurate account of the founding of Facebook. The new Predators trailer made some waves earlier this week along with Little Fockers. Neither have got me excited.

What does look awesome is Red, starring Helen Mirren (still hot), Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich (not in a western thankfully), and Morgan Freeman. Also check out The Divide for a unique take on the end of the world. Trailers embedded below!
