Heist films are always thrilling. A good heist film makes it a point to make sure that viewers empathize with the robbers, so much so that we frequently want them to evade the law, even though we know they are wrong.
However, it is difficult to evade the long arm of the law, and when justice closes in, the most thrilling moments in heist films occur. This is perfectly captured in the 2018 heist action thriller Den of Thieves. Some viewers may recognize influences from Michael Mann‘s “Heat.”
As the thieves plot to attack the Los Angeles Federal Reserve, the police do their utmost to predict and capture them. Notably, the movie is based on an attempt to loot the Federal Reserve.
Den of Thieves generally received positive reviews upon its debut, and it was a commercial success, grossing $80.5 million against its $30 million budget.

Den Of Thieves 2 Plot
Den of Thieves 2 continues where the first film left off. We witnessed the aftermath of the last theft in London, where Donnie plotted his next score, which would be the neighboring diamond trade. At the beginning of ‘Den of Thieves 2: Pantera,’ the setting will change to Europe.
Many exotic locales, notably Belgium, Marseilles, the Cote d’Azur, and Montenegro, are likely to be observed. It is believed that the sequel will have a brighter tone compared to the harsh original.
Nick O’Brien or Big Nick will be observed pursuing the perpetrators of the last robbery while drawing closer to Donnie. Donnie is unfortunately on the run from the Pink Panther cartel following a failed diamond theft.
Donnie is involved in preparations to rob the greatest diamond market in the world while being pursued by Interpol and Big Nick.
Similar to the original film, which was based on actual events, the sequel is inspired by the 2003 theft of the Antwerp diamond trade. Donnie and Nick, the two primary surviving characters, will form the focus of the narrative.
Nick has abandoned his family and problems at home to continue his preoccupation with pursuing criminals. Gudegast stated of the project, “Everything will take place in Europe.
And it will be about Big Nick seeking Donnie, who is involved in a diamond robbery and has paired up with the old Pink Panther mafia.
Another group will also pursue Nick, which I will not disclose now. There will be several different types of twists in this story. It will hopefully be somewhat shocking.”
