Critic Reviews

  1. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    Handsomely shot and edited, The Bank benefits greatly from the brutal ministrations of LaPaglia,
  2. A hokey but highly entertaining tale of corporate greed that should be especially satisfying if you're pissed off at big business.
  3. 70
    Like "Wall Street" before it, The Bank never amounts to more than a glossy comic book, and first-time writer-director Robert Connolly stumbles with his plotting and his direction of Wenham.
  4. The sleek, well-oiled, well-acted The Bank, while as meaty as a steak, is short on sizzle.
  5. 75
    The Bank, despite its faulty finale, is a fun and thrilling ride.
  6. It blends an intriguing concept with a suspenseful plot, and the result is a gripping 103 minutes at the movies.
  7. The film is not without its flaws, but it sports a terrific production design that integrates magically into the story -- as well as another top-notch performance by Anthony LaPaglia.
  8. The upshot is a whopper of an ending that is as silly as it is satisfying.
  9. Reviewed by: David Stratton
    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.
