Prequel has likable thieves, less thrill; cursing, violence.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The amusing series takes us back to the years before the infamous Spanish heists, when the criminal mastermind was healthier and in charge of his own gang of thieves. You can't help but root for the charming Berlin and the other quirky characters, whose antics are entertaining. From their point of view we see how each stage of the master plan comes together, what challenges they face along the way, and, of course, the success or failure of the entire enterprise. It's fun, but there's some obvious sexist behavior, and Berlin lacks the thrill of its parent series because it feels more focused on the likable cast than it does the heist that's being planned. Some franchise fans will be disappointed by this, but it's still entertaining, and even those unfamiliar with Money Heist can enjoy it.
