BAND OF ROBBERS REVIEWED
“Band of Robbers” is a loving idea for a modern adaptation. However, it wears its wannabe Wes Anderson cleverness on its sleeve. The cast is pretty strong, but no one seems to operate with any idea of what to do next. Melissa Benoist, Stephen Lang and Hannibal Buress are squandered in bit roles, while the leads keep trying to make the base concept work. I’d recommend a rental/stream, as your enjoyment of the film will deplete by the third act. Just read the original instead. Nick Swardson narrates it on Audible!
