How to Rob a Bank (2007)

Nick Stahl, Erika Christensen, and Gavin Rossdale star in a high-stakes caper film in which the only thing for certain is that nothing is as it seems. Fed up with the manner in which super-sized corporations continually stack the deck… More

Andrew Jenkins' amateurish, half-hearted romantic comedy-cum-heist film twists itself into unconvincing knots to pull off a guilt-free bank robbery.

It seems especially depressing when so-called independent filmmakers have nothing on their minds except aping the style of Hollywood's hip caper movies.

Film Threat

In spite of the caveats, it makes for a good time with Christensen providing lovely eye candy, but as for Jenkins and his hipper than thou dialogue, and gritty direction? I'm not impressed...

New York Daily News

An excellent actor too often stuck in unworthy roles, Nick Stahl deserves much better than Andrew Jenkins' derivative, self-conscious heist flick.

Village Voice

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.

Boxoffice Magazine

For a hip commercial and music-video director, Andrews Jenkins is oddly behind the curve and out of step in his feature directorial debut.

An 81-minute movie that runs out of ideas well before the halfway point.

David Cornelius

Builds enough on solid ideas and interesting characters to make up for its clumsier attempts at suspense.

This film had some serious potential. We start out with a sound premise; Young guy fed up with the system and how he is getting sucked dry by it goes in to vent… More

about the only thing going for this movie is Erika Christensen, hot, sassy and keeps you in suspense on whether or not she is in on it or not. The movie starts… More

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… More
