TAKERS, directed by John Luessenhop, revolves around a notorious group of criminals (Paul Walker, T I, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen, Michael Ealy and Idris Elba) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists.

Their slick routine has amply rewarded them, but when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans will go awry as the heist is interrupted by a hardened detective, Jack Welles (Matt Dillon), who is hell-bent on solving the case.
