The Banker

Critics Consensus

The Banker's timid approach to dramatizing its fact-based story is often outweighed by the trio of strong performances at its core.

  • [T]he film is overlong, but the story is an eye-opener and the central performances are terrific.

  • Taken on its own, "The Banker" is a pleasant watch. And who wouldn't benefit from a little Mackie and Jackson banter right now?

  • A potentially great, if safely made, film... ends up as a solid one instead.

  • It's a fascinating story... But it is depicted in the most safe, bland, just meh biopic form.

  • It gets a little weighed down... [But] I admire so much of the early part of the film.

    March 7, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Apple has delivered a credible, modestly entertaining entry into the world of prestige film -- but one that won't lose much if written off against the balance sheet of consumers' streaming-TV budgets.
