    Will connect with anyone who ever had a bad experience with a bank or finance company, and provides a satisfyingly loathsome character in Anthony LaPaglia's engaging protrayal of a corporate shark.
  2. A hokey but highly entertaining tale of corporate greed that should be especially satisfying if you're pissed off at big business.
  3. 75
    The Bank, despite its faulty finale, is a fun and thrilling ride.
  4. The sleek, well-oiled, well-acted The Bank, while as meaty as a steak, is short on sizzle.

    Handsomely shot and edited, The Bank benefits greatly from the brutal ministrations of LaPaglia,
  6. 50
    Though the script's twists and turns are fairly conventional and the Davis subplot is handled in an awkwardly obvious way, first-time feature filmmaker Robert Connolly understands the power of style.

    Neither a stimulating satire nor a serious exposure of the operations of the finance industry.
