A comedic adventure that re-imagines Mark Twain's iconic literary characters of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer as grown men in current day. Petty criminal Huck Finn hopes to leave his criminal life behind when he is released from a stint in prison, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies of wealth and adventure, Tom forms the "Band of Robbers," recruiting their misfit friends Joe Harper and Ben Rogers, to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure. But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences...

Band Of Robbers is quirky, but predictable
27 February 2016 | by PeterLormeReviewsSee all my reviews

Band Of Robbers( 2015) is a quirky modern day take on the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. If I had to describe this film in one word, it would be eccentric. I mean that in a good way. Its a great balance between zany comedy and heartfelt drama. However, I can't ignore the problems. Certain things happen in the movie that are completely illogical. Those things only occur so they can push the movie forward. This happens frequently throughout the movie. It can be quite frustrating at times. Also, several intriguing characters are either underwritten or underused. Especially Hannibal Buress' character, Ben Rogers. I loved every scene he was in. While it does have its apparent problems, Band Of Robbers still manages to give you a warm feeling at the end of the movie. Heartfelt, with a truly great message.
