Band of Robbers movie full length review - A Great Balance of Realism and Fantasy

Band of Robbers is a modernized version of the story of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and makes it more of a gangster story. It follows Tom and Huck as they search for an ancient treasure while that same treasure it been searched for by another man.

Let me start off by saying that I don't actually know the original Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn story, nor did I know that this was a modernization of said story until at least a day after watching it. Regardless, the source material for a movie doesn't affect my opinion of it whatsoever, but it just means that I would have had less of an idea of what was going to happen going in.

Band of Robbers is a fun movie. There was one scene in particular involving an early robbery that made me laugh a little harder than a probably should have. There are a handful of other jokes scattered about, but this scene specifically stood out to me. Also the movie does a great job of balancing both fantasy and realism. The movie's setting is realistic, yet the plot is more of a fantasy with the characters looking for buried treasure. Yet it all fits into the universe very well, nothing about that really feels out of place.

Despite these things this movie is very cliché and a little predictable. It often indulges in a handful of clichés that probably wouldn't have changed the story that much, and simply exist because the average movie watcher expects them to be there. Not all of these scenes were entirely pointless, but without all the things that I liked this movie would be very average.

Overall Band of Robbers is good. There are some very genuine laughs here and there and it manages to blend fantasy and realism very well. It suffers from being cliché and often predictable, but in the grand scheme of things was an enjoyable movie. In the end I would recommend this movie.
