    Take it Away



    Take it Away The real Takers are the creators of this mess which is nothing more than fast-paced action resting awkwardly upon the concept and scenes lifted primarily from the movie "Heat," directed and written by Michael Mann. What's added is either borrowed from other cops and robber releases or is so ludicrous it could have been written by, hmm, perhaps by a rapper. The movie is supposed to portray a group of experienced thieves who plan their capers well and execute them with precision (just like those in "Heat"), but this "slick" bunch wouldn't be able to layout a scenario to steal $10 from a child's lemonade stand. The clichéd, shallow script and lack of originality take us on a predictable ride through various familiar L.A. locations, leading inevitably to the botched "BIG" armed car heist and the ensuing gun battle. To add an expected twist, Russian mobsters come gunning later for their share of the loot following a friend's double-cross. The young girls will love to watch the attractive male cast, but with the wooden efforts of Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen together with the stunning performances (!) of Chris Brown and T1 there' s not much acting going on. That mediocrity extends to the pathetic contribution of Matt Dillon who plays a burned-out, veteran detective. You might, however, get a chuckle - though it's not intended - when, even though the gang drops security guards and innocent bystanders right and left in the armored car shoot-out, one of the leaders of their gang (Idris Alba) chastises Chris Brown's character for shooting a cop - Matt Dillon's partner- who cornered him in a restaurant kitchen. "We don't shoot cops," he yells after later seeing the TV coverage. Chris Brown cowers and says, "But he got the drop on me." "We don't shoot cops!" Alba repeats.
    There's action galore and some drinks and smiles, but not too much substance or depth. It's a poor attempt to follow in the steps of those who have done this kind of film so well in the past. Unless you simply want to watch guns, fights and chases, take a pass.
