Bank Robbery is wannabe road movie that talks about friendship of an ex- convict and depressed teenager boy who is dreaming about robbing banks. It could have been a good movie but it turned out quite a mess. First, the director tried too hard to make the film look like it has some deeper meaning but was only full of stupid characters. Over the top acting from Hannes Kaljujärv (ex-convict Madis) that actually goes better while movie develops, nowhere unfortunately. One ridiculous scene is chasing another. All the characters were empty that it was hard to feel sympathy for them. Maybe except Madis because he was the only character that evolved. Henri Kuus' (teenage boy Hannes) performance was totally dull and become more and more annoying. (At one point I thought it was one of the worst performance I have ever seen) I believe that the creators of the movie wanted to show very broken boy from broken family who suffers from violence at home and at the school. Maybe the dull performance wasn't completely the fault of young actor. And what was the suicide attempt scene? 'I'm gonna kill myself if you won't let me to rob a bank!' I don't want to spoil the ending but I have to say it was ridiculous. Worst ending ever!
Bank Robbery is good example of movies that actually has some potential but bad directing can ruin everything.
