Storyline

Piggy Banks tells the story of two charming and brilliant brothers who finance their lifestyle by robbing and murdering pretty much anyone foolish enough to get in the car with them. They learn the business from their sociopath father (Tom Sizemore) who doesn't bother to hide his crimes, or the brutal philosophy which drives it. He tells his sons people are just piggy banks. You need money? Just break one open. Michael is sloppy and reckless he goes about his work with a demented glee, John perhaps even more horrifyingly, understands the misery he inflicts he simply doesn't care. It's just a job. Lock all your doors. Written by Michelle

If boring could kill
28 February 2016 | by jim-67915See all my reviews

Born Killers has got to be one of the lamest and boring movies I have ever suffered through. The actors who played the 2 brothers are not star material to begin with. They are supposed to be stone cold Killers and they come off as soft wannabe tough guys. The kind you have a strong urge to slap for just looking your way. This movie was a dismal failure. Who cast these people ? Was it out of pity ? Lack of a budget ? A casting director who is incompetent ? The actors are dull. The plot is lame. The story is incredibly boring. This has got to be a planned tax write off or something. It would take a complete idiot to read the script and not see it for exactly what it is, as lame as lame can get. It's like someone thought hmmmmm let me find the worst script out there and pick the wimpiest no name cast I can find and see what happens. Well , as I am sure you suspected, nothing happened for a nothing movie ! This movie deserves a minus 10 rating. Born Wimps would be a more appropriate title. LOL
