Storyline

Two brothers, Mihalis and Nondas are working in a mortuary trying to make money, since Nondas owes a great amount of money to the Greek Mob and has to repay it; so he proposes to Mihalis that they start robbing banks. In order to stop the rapid increment of crime activities, the chief of the police has placed undercover officers in all bank stores, making the two brother's lives harder. The situation gets even worse when Mihalis falls in love with a bank employee. Big Bang is a insane comedy where nobody is the one he seems to be, no one does what he has to do and the consequence of all the above is something you wouldn't wish not even to your worst enemy. Written by Orfeas V.

At last...
28 January 2010 | by Skino473See all my reviews

As a Greek citizen, i am deeply disappointed with our cinema. The most of the movies we produce and send to the cinemas are garbage (Soyla Ela Xana), and our really good films stay unrecognized (Dogtooth). I am very happy that we produced Bank Bang. Its a film with the style of "Snatch", great actors , great screenplay and amazing direction. Its a comedy, based on the adventures of a working man whose brother is having problems with the maf. The whole movie is s very good piece of modern cinema and i have to say that i can easily watch it again. My congratulations, therefore, and let it be an example for the movies to come...
