Catch That Kid is a classic heist film, perfect for the young and young at heart. The movie tells the story of Maddy, a spunky 12-year-old girl played by Kristen Stewart, who hatches a plan to rob a high-security bank in order to pay for her father's life-saving surgery. Along with her two best friends, Gus (Max Thieriot) and Austin (Corbin Bleu), Maddy puts together a team to carry out the daring theft.

Maddy's father, Tom (Sam Robards), used to be a professional mountain climber until a tragic accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. Desperate to raise the funds for his experimental surgery, Maddy turns to her love of climbing and her determination to get her father back on his feet. With her friends and her climbing skills by her side, Maddy sets out to plan the heist of a lifetime.

Assembling the team is no easy feat, but Maddy manages to convince her friends Gus and Austin to join in on the fun. Together with Maddy's new friend, the tech-savvy computer whiz-kid Austin, the trio sets their sights on the high-security bank in downtown Los Angeles.

The team is faced with various obstacles along the way, including the skeptical bank manager, played by Jennifer Beals. The team also has to deal with Maddy's overprotective mother, Molly (Bebe Neuwirth), who is unaware of her daughter's risky plan.

The group's plan involves meticulous preparation and careful execution, both of which are done with the help of Austin's technological prowess. With cameras rigged and passwords cracked, the team is ready to break into the bank and abscond with the valuable contents of a safety deposit box - Maddy’s dad's life-saving money.

But things go awry very quickly, and the group finds itself dealing with unexpected obstacles that threaten to ruin the heist. From structural damage to slipping on a floor, the team is faced with one challenge after another in this nail-biting adventure.

With all the drama, action, and humor that a kid's heist movie could offer, Catch That Kid is a thrilling ride from start to finish. Kristen Stewart shines in her role as Maddy, bringing her natural charisma and witty humor to the role. Her character is an inspiration to young girls everywhere, showing that with a bit of courage and determination, anything is possible.

The movie's cinematography is impressive, with stunning aerial shots of Los Angeles and the surrounding mountains that capture the scale of the heist beautifully. The score is also noteworthy, with upbeat, high-energy tracks that perfectly complement the film's pace and tone.
