The light and comic Ladron que roba a Ladron isn't deep or hugely substantial, but it's still a very fun heist flick nonetheless.

Movie Info

Two crack thieves, Emilio and Alejandro, reunite to rob the biggest thief they know--Moctesuma Valdez, a TV infomercial guru who's made millions selling worthless health products to poor Latino immigrants. Valdez's empire is next to impossible to infiltrate. But Emilio and Alejandro know if they go undercover as day laborers - chauffeurs, gardeners, maids, and repairmen--they can rob Valdez blind right under his nose. It's a perfect plan... except that no one on their team wants the job.

Comic touches are obvious and broad, while helmer Joe Menendez lacks the essential energy for a vital heist entertainment.

This film is like Ocean's Eleven if directed by Robin Hood and financed by Telemundo.

The con they carefully plan is perilous and close to impossible, but the outcome is surprisingly heart-warming and satisfying.

The movie is primarily about fantasy, and everything is exaggerated to such a degree that you play along.

If you want dangerous schemes to be light-hearted entertainment, you've got to make allowances. Besides, the payoffs are worth it - in any language.

However derivative the film may be, director Menendez and writer Henrickson infuse a zippy energy and a fair amount of personality into this tale.

While it's easy to lambaste a film that's obviously derived from an inspirational predecessor, props go to successfully advancing a U.S.-created plotline and uniquely delivering a story that stands on its own.

Mostly it's silly caper stuff that works moderately well.

Painfully didactic storytelling.

Ladron leans far too heavily on a lifeless script and sluggish pacing to get its well-worn point across. The film's been-theres and done-thats are widespread.

Ladr%uFFFDn is slight and silly, and plays happily within its limitations.

This good-natured genre piece gets the job done while sneaking in a couple of pointed observations about contemporary Latino immigrant life.

Grand Hollywood entertainment for and about a long-ignored culture that's just now starting to sense the potential vastness of its own economic and political influence.

It's good vs. evil on a plain, flat playing field, but this welcoming minimalism only seems to embolden the entertainment factor of the film, instead of simplifying its appeal.

Audience Reviews for Ladron Que Roba A Ladron

Lighthearted caper concerns two career criminals who assemble a hand-picked team to rob an unscrupulous millionaire. They hire immigrants they believe will be underestimated with the required skills but no criminal experience. The struggling actor, the chauffer, the television repairman, etc. It's an eclectic group. Bright, colorful production coupled with a sincere and unaffected desire to entertain. Make no mistake, this is fairly typical stuff. It kind of plays out like a Spanish language version of an American heist movie with actors from telenovelas. It's almost impossible to describe without comparing it to Ocean's 11. True, it gets a bit routine at times, but it's also extremely entertaining and in no way boring. That Hollywood series ultimately came come off as somewhat smug, particularly by Oceans 13. What makes this Mexican film with English subtitles unique is in its utter lack of pretension. The story's structure is decidedly old-fashioned. The script is definitely funny, but it never feels like it's trying hard to be hip and that sincerity is refreshing. The title, from a Latin-American proverb that translates "the thief who robs a thief earns 100 years of forgiveness".

Funny and yet brilliant robbery of a informercial guru...that deserved to get robbed. Nobody deserves it but if wrong can revenge wrong....why not go for it!
Worth seeing to find out if they pull it off. Check it out.

A modest, moderately clever heist picture with a distinctly Hispanic flavor.
