DreamWorks Animation cements their reputation with a breezy, smart, and spectacular heist comedy.

Reviled by human society for their species, five predator animals get payback through a series of daring heists, playing the police and living the high life. Their self-centred routines are halted when their cocky wolf leader suddenly feels the appeal of helping others during a botched robbery -and, to pay for their crimes, a leading philanthropist educates them in using their talents for good. This doesn’t come easily for them all -and a new threat to the city makes things even harder. Based on a popular graphic novel series DreamWorks reminds everyone what they’re capable of after the inevitable Boss Baby sequel, with visuals that fuse cartoon dynamism with sharp cinematic detail and a clever, funny script delivered by a skilled cast.
