Fifth about The Seventh

Federal Bank Heist (Assalto ao Banco Central)

Assalto ao Banco CentralFederal Bank Heist: despite being based on actual events, Marcos Paulo’s film presents itself unashamedly as a derivative work. However, the tone never settles, swerving between gritty and funny without doing either very well. Furthermore, the characters are uninteresting and hard to relate to. The large, interesting cast is wasted and acts too broadly (furthering the idea that the characters are mere archetypes) and unappealingly. José Roberto Eliezer’s camerawork is slick and polished, but also generic.
