Corrected entry: The bar owner ask Gerald Butler if he wants a "weiƟbier" (wheat beer) and then his wife gives him a becks, which is pils beer. (02:10:05)

Correction: That's not what he said. I checked the theatrical and the unrated version of the movie. In both the bar tender just says "You want a beer?" to which Butler responds "Very much so. Like 50." Then the bar keep tells the woman "Chance give him a nice beer." There is nothing said about the type of beer or anything that you mentioned.

Corrected entry: The opening title sequence of the film states that LA is "The Bank Robbery Capital of the World", a title it was given in 1963 for a history of infamous bank heists. The titles state that the city has a bank robbery about every 48 minutes. However only in its worst year in 1992 did it even come close to this, with it having 1 robbery every 66 minutes - 2,641 robberies in a seven-county region. (00:00:55)

Correction: Actually the numbers are pretty close to spot on if you figure that banks are only open about 8 hours a day (9a to 5p banker's hours), 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year minus holidays - figure 250 days as a round figure. 250 days x 8 hours per day x 60 minutes per hour = 120,000 minutes then divided by the 48 minutes quoted = about 2500 robberies per year, so not that far off really.

That's assuming that banks are only robbed when they are open.

Robbery is the taking of property that involves person-to-person interaction with force, intimidation, or coercion. Burglary is breaking into a property with the intent to commit a theft, which does not involve person-to-person interaction. The statement would suggest banks are robbed during business hours (and burglarized when closed).


Corrected entry: During the 1st armored truck hijack they rip out part of the front windshield, also taking out the mirror on the front right fender. While driving the truck to the hideout you see both windshields intact, and the mirror is back on. (00:03:10 - 00:05:55)

Correction: I watched every shot of the truck closely and not once is it shown to have the window back intact after it's pulled out.

Continuity mistake: As they hold up the van, they drill, then pull the windscreen out. When leaving the windscreen is back in. (00:05:35)

More trivia for Den of Thieves

Question: Early on we see the crooks put wet cash in a microwave, presumably to dry it. Would that work? I just assume you'd end up with hot wet cash - I would have thought an oven or hairdryer or something would be a better bet.

Answer: Considering how microwave ovens work, it seems it would. Microwaves work by bombarding whatever is inside with actual 'microwaves' which works to excite the water molecules within. Paper, and in the case of cash, cotton, wouldn't be effected on its own but the water inside would be. Ever had something wrapped in a paper towel when you microwave it? The cash is not metal, and the water content is what gets heated up inside and evaporated, so I believe it would work.

Answer: There are videos of people drying money in microwaves, but it was a single layer of bills. But it can be tricky because, like wet clothes, it can catch on fire in the microwave if let in too long.
