Movie review: ‘Den of Thieves’

“Den of Thieves” is co-written by and is the directorial debut of Christian Gudegast, who previously wrote “London Has Fallen.” As his first film, Gudagest did a solid job. However, it is far from being an original or memorable movie. “Den of Thieves” is the classic, rehashed ...

Shortly after the Twin Towers fell in 2001, a crack team of just 12 Green Berets drove deep into Aghanistan in hopes of dealing a retributive blow to Taliban forces. Wildly outnumbered, and armed with only guns, horses and radios, these men teamed with local warriors to inflict heavy ...
