As a comedy it's not very funny and as an adventure it doesn't keep you on the edge of your seat. It does have some charm to it, but the appeal seems more to the pre-teen group than to an adult audience. The principal actors (Fernando Colunga, Eduardo Yanez) will be familiar to audiences of the Mexican telenovelas, and the director Joe Menendez has a long time association with Disney. In many respects, the film itself is a blend of the novella with Disney. Ladrones" is a follow-up to Menendez' 2007 "Ladron que roba a ladron" which was a film about thieves stealing from thieves. Of course if you're looking for "heist" films, your best bets are "Snatch" (2000), "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" (1998), "Rififi" (1974), "The Thomas Crown Affair", "The Killing" (1956), "The Usual Suspects" (1995) and "Reservoir Dogs" (1992)
