Ladrones

[3 stars]

This silly heist film never quite finds solid ground, but it manages to stay entertaining, in a broad kind of way. To anticipate the sense of this film, understand that director Joe Menendez is best known for TV shows like Siren and From Dusk to Dawn; entertaining, yes, but not exactly top of the heap.

If you approach this as a less capable A-Team, with silly choices, marginal acting, weak script, and absurd science you’ll do fine. The good guys do win and the bad guys are humiliated; sometimes that’s enough. To be fair, it also has a bit of a message to go with it. But I can’t recommend this with any kind of real conviction. You’ll have to decide that on your own.
