Editor's NoteHis time as a director may have seen Spike Lee gently creep away from the controversial material that made his name, but he hasn't lost his eye for creating an entertaining spectacle; INSIDE MAN is a deliriously constructed crime caper designed to keep audiences guessing right up until the final moments. The plot, written by Russell Gewirtz, works from a devilishly simple premise and spins off on a number of interesting and creative tangents. Detective Keith Frazier (Denzel Washington) and his partner Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are sent to deal with a hostage situation at a bank in lower Manhattan. Dalton Russell (Clive Owen) is a masked man holding a number of people hostage in the bank while its chairman, Arthur Case (Christopher Plummer), worries about a secret document he has hidden in a safety deposit box in the vaults. Madeline White (Jodie Foster) is a sassy power broker who Case hires to enter the melee in order to get his mysterious object out of the box and out of the bank. As Gewirtz gradually confounds viewers' expectations by threading neat twists and turns into the plot, Lee briefly--perhaps too briefly for hardened Spike fans--returns to the racial themes he overtly tackled in his earlier work. The director uses a number of visual tricks to keep the action humming, such as spectacular overhead shots and grainy, darkly hued posthumous interview clips with the hostages, but INSIDE MAN is essentially a fun popcorn movie executed with an intelligence usually lacking in the genre. While many of the themes--cops are racist, people in power are corrupt, the innocent are persecuted--may be hackneyed, it's testament to Lee's stature as a filmmaker that he manages to pull an engrossing and enjoyable romp from such ostensibly standard subject matter.

Customer Reviews of Inside Man
Inside Man: Thriller6/8/2012
As some people have said in their reviews, it's not quite what you'd expect a bank robbery movie to be. It's hard to explain why that is without giving away the whole plot of the movie. The f word is thrown around a whole lot. If you don't mind a little bit of violence and a lot of vulgar language, then I highly recommend this movie, especially if you enjoy a good bank robbery movie (even though this isn't your average bank job). It is a little bit slow at some points. Some parts could probably be taken out without really losing much. It can get a little confusing if you don't pay close attention to every detail. So, if you don't mind spending a couple of hours watching a thrilling "bank robbery" movie, Inside Man should definitely be considered.
The cleverness of the plan is what makes it great
