Near the beginning when Toshio is sending a fax he places the pages in the machine face up, yet as the page moves through the machine we can see the logo which clearly shows this machine expects pages to be placed face down. The fax is later shown being read by Simon and has been correctly received. See more »
This movie was a great surprise for me. The contrast between LaPaglia and Wenham is very believable. LaPaglia's Simon in his expensive suits and $100 haircut in stark contrast to Wenham's Jim in a leather jacket and unkempt hair. I found myself talking to the characters, from calling Simon (LaPaglia) a dirty bastard, to rolling my eyes at Jim (Wenham) and calling him a sell-out. The Bank really held my "interest" and gave a nice "payoff" in the end with a great twist.
A great movie if you like the David and Goliath-type of movie.
