Critic Reviews for Ben Banks

All Critics (2)

This modest independent film takes full advantage of its beautiful locale, and while rough in spots, contains an unexpected moral boost to counter its somewhat edgy spirit.

This is a message to Bryce Clark, the writer-director of the made-in-St. George comedy "Ben Banks": Your movie's awful, dude, but don't give up on filmmaking.

Audience Reviews for Ben Banks


This film is beautiful. Funny at times, touching at times but overall a love letter to southern UTAH- some of the best cinematography I've seen. It's a story about finding yourself that's spiced up with some interesting enough B and C story lines and the soundtrack is perfect. See this movie with friends. You'll have plenty to talk about.
