The mob has a plan. Recruit three renowned bank robbers from different parts of the world and put them into acton robbing banks posing as black men. Deposit an insured diamond worth millions into a banks vault. Steal it back. Collect the insurance. And, sell it in pieces all over the world, tripling their money. But when three down and out plumbers from the hood decide that robbing the same bank would make them Ballers, the mob's plan falls apart. They make their first heist at the same time that the mob is depositing the diamond. Now the mob wants their diamond back and they will stop at nothing to get it. Written by
Imagine if the Three Stooges had an urban makeover and concocted a way to make some fast cash and you would have Bank Brothers. For what appears to have been made on a low budget, this film is truly an independent. With this in mind, the cast and crew pulled through to make this a charming, straight to video find. Guertin is able to blend several types of humor while sticking to the storyline, thus creating a film of dimension that still remains lighthearted. If you're interested in a blockbuster hit that has the budget to make a film with seemingly no limitations, than this film is not for you. If you want a true indie that has a modern comedic appeal, than check out Bank Brothers. For what it is, it's worth the watch.
