Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Comic touches are obvious and broad, while helmer Joe Menendez lacks the essential energy for a vital heist entertainment."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Needlessly complicated and kind of silly."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"An American comedy for the other America."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"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."
‑ Adam Fendelman,
"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."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"This film is like Ocean's Eleven if directed by Robin Hood and financed by Telemundo."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"The movie is primarily about fantasy, and everything is exaggerated to such a degree that you play along."
‑ Peter Debruge, Miami Herald
"Subtitled heist movie for teens and up scores."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Mostly it's silly caper stuff that works moderately well."
‑ Donald Munro, Fresno Bee
"Ladr%uFFFDn is slight and silly, and plays happily within its limitations."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"The con they carefully plan is perilous and close to impossible, but the outcome is surprisingly heart-warming and satisfying."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"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."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"However derivative the film may be, director Menendez and writer Henrickson infuse a zippy energy and a fair amount of personality into this tale."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Painfully didactic storytelling."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"This good-natured genre piece gets the job done while sneaking in a couple of pointed observations about contemporary Latino immigrant life."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
