Storyline

The obstacles facing the perilous mission of 12-year-olds Ida, Sebastian and Jonas are many: a bank vault 30 meters above ground to open, secret combinations to crack, vicious guard dogs to wrestle, watchmen to distract and a bank manager to fool. Not to mention surviving a hair-raising go-cart race through narrow city streets with a hoard of cops in hot pursuit. Equipped with state-of-the-art climbing gear, a few borrowed go-carts and a couple of wild, throbbing hearts set on winning Ida's love, the trio plan the most audacious bank heist in the history of Denmark: to steal 1.5 million DKK from CCT Bank Europe's new headquarters - by breaking into the world's most secure bank vault.

Questionable premise but good for children.
18 September 2020 | by Animany94See all my reviews

I liked this movie for its plot, despite its improbability.

Ida is a young girls who got a passion for climbing from her father who climbed Mount Everest before she was born. Because of an accident where he fell down, he isn't too happy to see his daughter climbing. That accident haunts him and ends up critically numbing his entire body and without an affordable cure in immediate sight Ida arranges a bank robbery to get the money.

When the plot is in undivided focus it keeps your interest with its steady pace and great build-up with atmospheric music and some surprises along the way. The determination expressed from the main actress to save her dying father is what drives the plot and its action along with her friends' support.

But I can't deny that the acting could be pretty wooden especially from the younger actors. The lines can be pretty corny, but at times when the lines are supposed to be, it's possible to make me chuckle. The romance subplot serves its purpose and works in the context of the movie being for children and acted by children as well.

So to sum up, a good movie for children with a cool plot despite its impropability and some wooden acting here and there.
