Bank Roll (2012)
User ReviewsReview this title
The movie was about a guy who pays each one of his friends to help mimic a bank heist that his brother was just busted for. The idea was to cause reasonable doubt that the brother committed the crime. Everyone had their job. The movie was filled with a lot of long drawn out scenes that made you question what you were watching. There was a long scene in which you watch one of the characters work out. Seriously. How pointless was that? After all you watch, you never see the bank heist that should cast reasonable doubt for the brother in jail as the movie ends right before he enters the bank. I wouldn't recommend this movie, but if you were going to watch it just know it is low budgeted with long pointless scenes and no actually bank heist.
At one point the film attempts to be funny by using English subscripts for a guy talking slang, but it really wasn't necessary, nor was it as funny as when we saw it in "Airplane."
The film also lacks an on screen climax because Doug couldn't figure out how to make the inside of his apartment look like a bank.
It should be a crime to sell or rent this film.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. Sex talk. No sex or nudity.
That would not be much of a problem if there was more to this movie, however that is ALL that this movie is. No action, just those rambling stories.
I liked few jokes in scene in a car between guy with dreads and guy with glasses, but that was just about only barely OK part of entire movie.
As I marked this 'spoiler' here's a big one ... there is no bank robbery. The entire thing is basically just bunch of guys talking about how they are going to do it, and then just nothing.
It left me feeling disappointed. In a bad way. Like being young in back of the car with girl, but her going 'this is as far as I go' and going home with blue balls. Not cool.
