    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.

    The Bank, despite its faulty finale, is a fun and thrilling ride.
  4. The upshot is a whopper of an ending that is as silly as it is satisfying.

    Handsomely shot and edited, The Bank benefits greatly from the brutal ministrations of LaPaglia,

    Like the film itself, Jim Doyle is smart enough to be engaging and lovely to look at, but he's too one-dimensional to be satisfying.

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