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...

This little flick is amusing and fun. It has nothing to do with the Mark Twain characters of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn outside of it is the names of the two main characters played by Kyle Gallner and Adam Nee. The story starts with these two as childhood friends and then jumps forward to them as adults. One (Gallner) being released from jail the other (Nee) a mostly half hearted policeman.
They get back together, now adults, to continue their search for a legendary treasure of gold they have been seeking since childhood. In this pursuit they cross paths with numerous underworld criminal types. There is suspense, guns, chase scenes, etc. Not too much to be said about this movie outside of it being fun but mostly forgetful due to it's episodic editing. It's worth seeing for lite entertainment.
