Ladron que roba a ladron/ Thieves robbing thieves

Joe Menendez. (USA/Latino, 2008), 98 min.


A pair of professional Latino thieves find their complex plan to take a millionaire and popular Latino television guru for all he's worth complicated by the fact that their old crew wants no part of the high-risk job in this tense crime caper. Emilio and Alejandro have hatched a plan for the perfect crime, but in order to carry out their caper the diabolical duo will need a crack crew who can stealthily inject themselves into the inner circle of their wealthy mark. Moctesuma Valdez is a man of power with many personal servants, and if Emilio and Alejandro's team can simply assume the guise of gardener, maid, or chauffer, they will be in the perfect position to strike when Valdez least expects it. When the skilled members of the regular team all reject the plan, Emilio and Alejandro are forced to hire "real" immigrants to get the job done. Spanish with English subtitles.
