Good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.

This movie has a lot of good surprises to it.

I'm not a big fan of Malin Akerman, but I'm not going to say she's not good in action sequence (and she does it in heels), but Joe Manganiello and Ken Marino (who is credited in IMDB as "Glen" though there is a whole running joke with his name being "Ron") both sort of rule the spotlight when they're on screen and she gets overshadowed even though she's the "main" character (at least out of the adults).

The kids mostly do an amazing job, I think they'll be worth watching as they grow in their careers.

The only big "problem" I'm seeing in this is that you're crossing a heist movie with a rescue movie, with kids.....and it feels a lot like "Dora and the Lost City of Gold" they're is even 4 of them, 2 are related. It's more likely just a coincidence of similarities, but it's a god comparison of when it gets noisy versus how to make it more seemless (Dora wins).

Can't imagine this will be disappointing watch for younger audiences, and it's definitely good enough for adults too.

Did You Know?


Sarah Rothschild's script was included on The Black List, an annual survey of the "most-liked" motion picture screenplays that haven't been produced yet.


It seems completely ludicrous that all the children just stand looking at the child trying to climb into the window for several minutes without trying to help him until he asks.
