No excerpt available.
Andrew Jenkins' amateurish, half-hearted romantic comedy-cum-heist film twists itself into unconvincing knots to pull off a guilt-free bank robbery.
An excellent actor too often stuck in unworthy roles, Nick Stahl deserves much better than Andrew Jenkins' derivative, self-conscious heist flick.
An 81-minute movie that runs out of ideas well before the halfway point.
It seems especially depressing when so-called independent filmmakers have nothing on their minds except aping the style of Hollywood's hip caper movies.
So objectively awful it ceases even to be a reflection of writer-director Andrews Jenkins's non-talent, How to Rob a Bank calls into question the distribution filtration process that should protect delicate consumer eyes from things like this.
Audience Reviews for How to Rob a Bank
This one took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting much from watching the trailer, but after seeing the film, I really liked it. I loved the style of this film. The film reminded me of another bank caper, Flypaper. The big difference is that Flypaper had wit and great dialog. This film has style that Flypaper lacked. I was surprised by the short running time of the film. Nick Stahl and Erika Christensen shine in the film. They have a great on screen chemistry. Gavin Rossdale, Terry Crews, and David Carradine provide solid supporting work. I loved the Duran Duran references and the end credits playing Hungry Like the Wolf. I definitely recommend this film.
The film is about a man, Jason"JINX" Taylor (Nick Stahl) who goes to withdraw $20 bucks and gets caught in the middle of a bank robbery, ending up in the vault with one of the would be robbers (the hot-and-sexy Erika Christensen) he then treats as a hostage. The robbers want in, whilst Jinx wants out... and his 20 bucks. Meanwhile Officer Degepse (Terry Crews), is stuck outside the bank trying to defuse the situation. A fun scenario lol: 10 tips to rob a bank and get away with it: 1. Decide to rob a bank 2. Have a plan 3. Have a back-up plan 4. Establish clear communications 5. Choose your partners carefully 6. Expect the unexpected 7. Shit happens 8. Don't get greedy 9. Remember, shit happens. 10. Hang up and know when to walk away
Builds enough on solid ideas and interesting characters to make up for its clumsier attempts at suspense.
