Check them out.


Well, I think so.

Check again, please.

I left those papers in the office...

I brought some, but not all of them...

Now you tell me!

I am on my way.

Sir, somebody just spit on you,

be careful.



Watch out for the cops!

Come on, run!

Run, run. Run!

Calm down! Let's go!

Help is on the way.

Stop them!

Get him there!

You go that way!

Hold it right there!

Hold it there, don't jump!

Stay calm.

The cops almost got you, you idiot.

We didn't need to mess

the guy up like that.

Well, I thought you were gonna give him


Doggy, Maicol pulled out a knife...

It's no big deal, Fresh.

I'm serious.

Next time you need to stay sharp.

Next time...

not even the saint on your keychain

will save you.

Okay, go ahead.

Where is it?


Now where is it?

No. Here it is.


Good evening.


Well, look at this...

one day they will have

cameras everywhere...

under the bed...

in the bathroom...

up your ass.

You know, Chucho...

you're watching everyone...

but I'm watching you.

What we came for.

I need more time.

Which is your good hand, Chucho?

No, Rico.

That one.


We'll cut the other one so

you can't say cops don't have hearts.

Flaco, go ahead.

Look here!

Take a look at these!

Let's see...

How did you get those?

You just left them in the lurch.

You had to go into hiding,

and that happens.

But it speaks well of you.

Because you still love and miss them.

Your wife is really pretty.

Not my family, Rico.

Not me...

but people in Spain are very corrupt.


What are you doing, you damn thief?

Let me go!

-Got a light?


A light.

Thanks. Sorry.


Son of a bitch!

Hello... Sir?

Young man, it's for you.

-For me?

-Yes, for you.


I saw you trying to rob that guy.

You're lucky you didn't get caught.

Who is this?

Say hello to the camera!

I'll give you another chance.

What are you talking about?


Calm down, I'll give you back your phone.

-See that statue?


Look over by the door.


Hello... What do you want?

I want to teach you to be

the best pickpocket in Bogot.


I'll see you in two hours

at the Saint Moritz.

Son of a bitch.


What do you see?


Look closer.

They're drinking, they're playing cards.

You know what I see here?



Ma'am, you dropped some money.

-Thank you.

-You're welcome.

-Excuse me, the restroom?

-In the back, to the left.

Thank you very much.

You see?

You don't have to beat them up

to steal from them.

-Sir, an aguardiente and a soda, please.

-Yes, sir.

Excuse me, sir...

you dropped your wallet on the floor,

be careful.

Thank you.

Yesterday was an accident.

It was just plain stupid.

You almost killed him.

It's my job to see everything

on the streets.

To monitor, in a room with cameras.

I see everything.

And I f*ck anyone who disobeys.

I don't care about your cameras.

Thanks, man.

-Thank you.

-You're welcome.

How much did you make today?

I bet it was less than $60,000.

What is it to you?

I made more in five minutes than you can

dream about making in one day.

How did you do it?

You saw me.

Skill, intelligence.

If you're smart you'll work for me.

I don't work for cops.

We all work for the cops in this city.

Now let me teach you something else.

Soon, somebody's gonna miss their wallet,

so I'd best be out of here.

And so should you.

Just what you wanted, right?

What's up, Jaime.


Here's what I made today.



This isn't even 10% of what we brought in.
