Bandidas is a Western comedy starring Latin sensations, Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz as the vindictive gun-wielding and knife-throwing bank-robbing duo. Set in 1848, a New York bank wants to put down a rail line across Mexico. Tyler Jackson is the vile land baron out to do the dirty work of deposing farmers, leaving them landless and without food, as well as help overtake the smaller banks of the region. The two women who sit at extreme opposites of the personality spectrum, Maria Alvarez and Sara Sandoval, initially can’t help fighting over their differences. Alvarez is a poor daughter out to avenge her ousted father, while Sandoval has just recently returned from her studies in Europe and now seeks revenge on Jackson for killing her father. The two come under the tutelage of famed bank robber Bill Buck and learn how to trust each other. Jackson resorts to hiring a criminal investigator to go after the now infamous ‘Bandidas.’ However, he soon finds himself falling into the right hands and the heists get bigger than ever. Rated PG-13 for sexuality, nudity, and violence.
