Good crime comedy
23 February 2018 | by Alexander_BlanchettSee all my reviews

An entertaining and funny mexican road movie/heist movie. The story is about two friends who decide to rob an archeological museum. Gael Garcia Bernal givres a hilarious performance as an actor who plans the whole thing and thinks more about himself. Leonardo Ortizigris was also okay. The screenplay was full of wit and the film itself very entertaining. A fine direction and very cool locations and settings. The story might not be the most original one but the characters are quirky and its fun to watch them. Also the dynamics between the characters made the movie good. Simon Russell Beale was also good in his short appearance. Its a bit overlong and surely could have been shorten. Still a fun film and I recommend it for everybody who is looking for simple but smart fun.
