<p>In his spare time between beating Rihanna and apologizing for it, Chris Brown made a movie! In <em>Takers</em>, Brown breaks type by beating up baddies instead of pop-stars as he and his BFF's T.I., Hayden Christensen and his Super-sized version, Paul Walker try to outsmart the downright lovable Matt Dillon who was assigned to track down these vagrants. The movie looks all flashy and new but its really just a "one last" heist movie. One wonders why these thieves ever stop, they seem to do pretty great until their last big score.</p><p></p>Reviews have been typical fare for a Hip-Hop Heist film (yeah, that was just coined), with Nathan Rabin from <a href="http://www.avclub.com/articles/takers,44613/">The A.V. Club</a> saying: "Takers is all about impossibly handsome, chiseled men in exquisitely tailored suits looking thoughtful and sophisticated while enjoying fine liquor poured from crystal decanters in a series of glossy, glamorous urban locales. Thereâs also a heist or two, plus the requisite chases, gunfire, and betrayals, but that all seems incidental to the filmâs real purpose: allowing a cast of handsome young men to live out their Rat Pack fantasiesâand by extension, the audienceâs.<p></p>"Director John Luessenhop and his co-screenwriters Peter Allen, Gabriel Casseus, and Avery Duff futilely attempt to add a little substance to the flashy nonsense with a subplot involving Elbaâs troubled bond with crack-addicted sister Marianne Jean-Baptiste. But in spite of the pedigree of the actors involved, the relationship feels shoehorned in from another movie altogether. Besides, too muchâor for that matter, anyâcharacterization might get in the way of the filmâs raison dâÃªtre: standing-around-looking-cool sequences."
