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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The con they carefully plan is perilous and close to impossible, but the outcome is surprisingly heart-warming and satisfying.
| Original Score: 3/4
Needlessly complicated and kind of silly.
| Original Score: 2/4
The movie is primarily about fantasy, and everything is exaggerated to such a degree that you play along.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
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.
While the caper attempts to ape the Ocean's style...it proves to be a pale immitation when it comes to sparkling repartee and crisp pacing.
International talents converge for an entertaining genre exercise.
Easygoing heist flick.
It's refreshing to see a bit of escapism that takes place in contemporary Southern California as seen, and lived, by those uninterested in aping the Ocean's 13 vibe of ice-coolness.
A long overdue Hollywood overture to America's Latino immigrant community.
| Original Score: 3/5
Ladrón's earnest tone works against the film's hoped-for irreverent stance, and Menendez's slack pacing undercuts the project's attempt to offer a viable alternative to Hollywood fare.
