During a final scene in the movie, Big Nick is seen, from a front camera shot, visibly holding his handgun with his right hand and supporting the grip with his left. However, when the camera cuts to an "over the shoulder" shot, the handgun is now being gripped in his left hand and supported by his right.

"Den of Thieves" is an entertaining crime film with the showdown of Los Angeles County Sheriff "Big Nick" O'Brien and his team, and the criminal Ray Merrimen and his skilled gang of bank robbers. The plot is full of action and twists and the identity of the mastermind is a great surprise. The pace is perfect and the viewer does not feel the 140 minutes running time. The shootout recalls "Heat" and O'Brien´s personal drama with his wife is pointless and only a filler in the story. "Den of Thieves" is not a film for intellectuals and the target audiences will be very satisfied. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Covil de Ladrões" ("Den of Thieves")
