This German film finds a way to be entertaining on its own terms, despite having a style and content similar to so many other action-crime-comedy movies. So while Four Against the Bank has much that's reminiscent of Guy Ritchie movies, Quentin Tarrantino movies, and the Oceans franchise, it seems to be enough to stand out even using such a well-worn formula. Much of the humor is derived from the fact that these four character archetypes (washed-up actor, socially inept banker, meathead fighter, and entitled rich kid) don't seem capable of even getting through the average day, let alone being able to reclaim their stolen savings from the very bank that ripped them off. Somehow, it works, despite it being overdone.
