The Banker's outstanding performances from Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson are powerful! How their characters fought through systematic racism/white supremacy to acquire wealth through the banking system is a story we all can learn from.

Not once did I lose interest or enjoyment in it, I just can't help but feel it could have been told better... A great, feel-good story and one that really does deserve to be told, inside a movie that does deserve to be watched.
