Storyline

When two trash-picking boys from Rio's slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet's return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they've found must be important. Written by Universal Pictures

Brazilian Kids vs. Evil
21 February 2015 | by billcr12See all my reviews

Two fourteen year old boys find a wallet at a garbage dump with money and pictures with numbers on the back. Through a series of silly and highly unlikely events, the pair are chased by nasty police who are involved with corrupt politicians. Martin Sheen; who was the reason I watched this movie in the first place shows up as a priest with a small church near the dump. Rooney Mara is his assistant, and seems to be teaching English to the children while having difficulty with Portugese. This is a badly written story with competent acting. The kids are likable enough but even without a spoiler alert, you can figure out the ending without much effort. At least the scenery of Rio is interesting, but that is not enough to recommend this film.
