Spike Lee departs from his usual heavy-handed filmmaking to present an entertaining and inventive heist film. The antagonistic duo of Washington and Owen are powerful on-screen, but a lot of the believable supporting performances from the SWAT crew and the hostages make the film work.

Clive Owen and Denzel in a cops-and-something standoff. They're not robbing the bank and shooting hostages, so what's it all about? Interesting and satisfying.

Lee's smart film distinguishes itself from other heist films by demonstrating how undistinguishable the human face can be. Tricked me.

Inside Man review

"You gotta be crazy to go in there." This critic recalls enjoying this innovative heist flick. It starts with the story of Dalton Russell (Clive Owen), Detectives Keith Frazier (Denzel Washington) and Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Captain Darius (Willem Dafoe) become involve in a bank robbery and Madeleine White (Jodie Foster) become involve. In the same league of Fair direction, nice soundtrack and solid performances all around. One of the memorable lines - Dalton Russell: "Unfortunately, the further you run from your sins, the more exhausted you are when they catch up with you... and they do." The Italian Job and Ocean's 11 in terms of it's genre and entertainment value. Inside Man is an enjoyable well casted crime picture wherein your attention will be glued from start to its...

"Inside Man" by Yojimbo

A cunning bank robber plans the perfect heist and plays a cat and mouse game with hostage negotiator Denzel Washington. Oh, my...the originality. Well, this is a polished Hollywood thriller and I could probably just leave it at that and everyone would know exactly what they were going to get. Spike Lee directs with style and efficiency and there's some smart dialogue between Denzel and the always reliable Clive Owen, heading up a quality supporting cast. But let's face it this formula has been used so many times that the entire film left me with a feeling of Deja Vu, reminding me of everything from Dog Day Afternoon to Swordfish. Even the now inevitable twist failed to produce any surprises and I guessed literally EVERY aspect of the plot well before it happened. Jodie Foster's character ...

Pretty interesting mystery

A group of what appears to be painters enters a New York City Bank, and lock the doors. One of them then disables the security cameras with a flashlight equipped with an infrared light.

They then reveal high-powered weapons, and ordering everybody on the ground. When they secure the place, they order all the adult hostages to strip down to their underwear, and put on clothing identical to their own. The strange thing is, they aren't interested in the vault.

Two NYPD detectives are assigned to the case, and head to the scene to negotiate with the robbers/hostage takers. One of the detectives, played by Denzel Washington, believes that there is a lot more to the story than the villains are telling the authorities through released hostages.

The bank's president (Christopher Plumb...
