Piggy Banks tells the story of two charming and brilliant brothers who finance their lifestyle by robbing and murdering pretty much anyone foolish enough to get in the car with them. They learn the business from their sociopath father (Tom Sizemore) who doesn't bother to hide his crimes, or the brutal philosophy which drives it. He tells his sons people are just piggy banks. You need money? Just break one open. Michael is sloppy and reckless he goes about his work with a demented glee, John perhaps even more horrifyingly, understands the misery he inflicts he simply doesn't care. It's just a job. Lock all your doors. Written by
With a title like "Born Killers" and Tom Sizemore, you would think the film had some potential to be entertaining. Unfortunately, Seizemore's screen time is limited to short flashbacks. For a movie that you anticipate would have lots of brutal action, "Born Killers" has very little action of any kind. Off screen violence, frequent flashbacks, and a plot adrift in nonsense, is all there is. These killers are so perfect that even though they pursue violence like a hobby, zero police are involved. The most obvious flaw however is that the film threatens to talk itself to death. Boring conversations, between characters you don't find the least bit interesting is the real "killer" here. - MERK
