Not a bad story idea...I just didn't particularly like the direction the film went in the end
2 February 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film begins with a young lady who is obviously having financial problems. She has creditors after her and she loses her job. Into this life comes a weird random event. As she stands on the street dressed as a clown, a group of criminals also disguised as clowns pick her up--assuming she's one of the gang. She has no choice but go along with these armed bandits but at the end when the job falls apart, she splits with the money and seemingly lives happily ever after.

My friend recently told me that I am a "hopeless moralist" as I have an overly strong sense of right and wrong. While I am sure this is true, he also said that this colors my reviews some times and now that I think about it, he's probably right again. I bring all this up because although I really liked the story idea for BANKRUPT, the way it ended just felt wrong to me--and the "hero" ended up being a very selfish person--and thereby making me like the movie far less. Had it ended with the lady capturing the gang or alerting the police, I would have loved the film. Having her ending up being just as bad as them and keeping stolen money made me feel disappointed. Just my two cents worth.

Overall, good but flawed.
