More Detail:

BANK OF DAVE is based on the true story of a self-made successful businessman who decides he wants to open his own bank to serve his needy community, after the latest recession. The problem? No one has even dared to apply to open a bank in 150 years. The elite few who control the banking system will do everything they can to stop him. BANK OF DFAVE is a truly great and entertaining underdog story which extols the importance of each person regardless of status or wealth. However, the movie has foul language, a few drinking scenes, which includes a character who guzzles wine to mask her emotional pain, and adult themes.

Dave Fishwick is a self-made millionaire who’s made his fortune selling vans. Dave lives in the economically depressed town of Burnley, a town Northwest of London. When the latest recession hits, the people of Burnley like all those in the Great Britain are charged exorbitant lending fees by corporate socialist bankers, if they are even approved to borrow from the banks. Then, the banks start to fail and are bailed out by the government using the tax money from the very people the banks hurt. So, the bank executives award themselves millions in bonuses, while the ordinary people, who have already lost their money, suffer.

Dave recognizes he’s been blessed with wealth. He begins to lend money to fellow community members of Burnley during hard times. Every lender pays him back in full. They also ask him to invest their profits. Best of all, over one hundred jobs are created by the new businesses. This gives Dave an idea to start his own bank.

Dave calls on expert legal advice from London to help him apply to start his own bank. The bank will serve its own people. Any profits will be donated to the needy of Burnley. The London legal team sends a junior member with little experience, Hugh, to the town of Burnley, to let Dave down softly. They know it’s impossible to start an independent bank in the face of the cartel that runs the banks.

After a few days, Hugh is taken in by the town, and by a young doctor, Alexandra, who wants to open a free medical clinic. Dave convinces Hugh to help, though the odds, along with the greedy system of elites who play dirty, are stacked high against them. At least, Dave wants to expose the corporate socialism!

BANK OF DAVE is a great uplifting movie about an underdog who stands up to the greedy socialist elites, who run the banks in the United Kingdom. It has great messages that point to the inherent importance and dignity of each person and promote love and care for others, and shows that capitalism prospers the community, while socialism destroys. The sentiments support biblical commands to take care of others (such as Mark 10:21, Luke 6:30-31, Matthew 19:21, Mark 10:45, Romans 12:13, Galatians 6:2). The movie supports standing up for what is right even when it seems there is no chance for success.

In fact, at a funeral in a church that honors Jesus Christ as the pastor says, “The Lord said, I love you and I will never leave you”, Dave says that the real heroes are not the politicians but people like the deceased nurse who saved lives for years.

The movie shows that governments are notoriously bad or corrupt in running anything, as shown by the government’s failed involvement to bail out the banks and the governments collusion in trying to stop Dave. In fact, the government sends police from London to arrest Dave and the prosecutor lies, committing perjury. Hugh gets the case thrown out. Furthermore, the power and control to make decisions are often taken away from the individual when the government steps in to make laws that determine the value and quality of life, or which lives are worth saving with costly medical treatment. Thus, when Hugh can’t wait for the hospital to see him, he mentions he has private health care insurance.

Regrettably, there is vulgar language (much is muffled British accents), drinking and adult situations, so caution is recommended.
