Product Description

Academy Award winner Denzel Washington, Academy Award nominee Clive Owen and Academy Award winner Jodie Foster star in this intense and explosive crime thriller. The perfect bank robbery quickly spirals into an unstable and deadly game of cat-and-mouse between a criminal mastermind (Owen), a determined detective (Washington), and a power broker with a hidden agenda (Foster). As the minutes tick by and the situation becomes increasingly tense, one wrong move could mean disaster for any one of them. From acclaimed director Spike Lee comes the edge-of-your-seat, action-packed thriller that The Wall Street Journal calls "a heist film that's right on the money."

I just finished watching "Inside Man" (2006) on TV (with Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Christopher Plummer, Willem Dafoe). Washington plays an ambitious, smooth talking NY detective. Owen plays an ivy league bank robber (probably a history buff). Foster is an expensive "fixer" with connections in high places. Plummer owns the bank, and harbours 50-year old secrets. These are the main characters. I heard this was a heist film so was not really interested in seeing it, but I was wrong to judge this film by its genre. I was pleasantly SURPRISED by the intelligence this film exudes throughout. The "heist" (bank robbery) is actually of secondary importance to the underlying storyline. It merely sets the stage, and mobilizes the characters into a dance with each other. The well thought out master plan for the heist does not include stealing the many piles of neatly stacked money that is laid bare in the inner sanctum of the bank. Other forms of currency are worth more in that the rightful owners of this property are unable to declare anything missing. The items removed from safety deposit box 362 cannot be traced. The perfect crime. Although the four major players begin with seemingly opposing agendas, they quickly find themselves able to communicate easily with one another. And one aspect of human nature puts them on common ground in end. Intrigue builds to a crescendo as the movie progresses to its conclusion. This is a film that is WELL WORTH SEEING - AT LEAST TWICE. For those who like movies with intrigue, drama, character development, action, etc., this one's a win/win/winner.

"My name is Dalton Russell. Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and I never repeat myself."

It is so great to go to a movie and have it fulfill high expectations for one. The trailer and the television commercials for "Inside Man" piqued my curiosity, and since Denzel Washington, Clive Owen and Jodie Foster signed on, and Spike Lee ended up directing the movie, I decided I had to go see the first showing the first day do that I could find out what exactly is the game going on with this bank robbery that is not a bank robbery. I figured that armed with the idea that the perfect crime is the one that you do not know has been committed,

Dalton Russell (Owen), the man who came up with this perfect crime, might not repeat himself, but the words he speaks into the camera at the beginning of the film are repeated when the revelation comes and you see the total audacity of his plan. This is one of those movies where somebody tells you what they are doing and it does not matter because you are probably not going to figure it out (okay, some people will, but they are either smarter than me or we are talking the old saying about blind hogs). Detective Keith Frazier (Washington), is in the hostage negotiator in charge, with fellow Detective Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor), at his side. The bank in question belongs to Arthur Case (Christopher Plummer) and clearly the last thing he is worried about is the money that is there. So he contacts Madeliene White (Foster), who has always been the sort of woman who arranges thing for a nice but not necessarily small fee.

It takes Frazier a while to catch on that the guy in charge inside the bank is the smartest one in the game (or, at the very least, he has all of the angles figured out).

I have always been a big Denzel Washington fan. He is excellent in this movie as is Clive Owen, another favourite of mine. Denzel has a lot of humour in his dialogue and excels at this also. A real twist at the end makes for a great ending.

Good heist movies can be a lot of fun, and Inside Man is one of my favorites. Why is the genre interesting? I think it's because it's fascinating to see a robbery unfold, and the particular method used. In order to keep us interested in what could be a stale topic, modern heist movies have tried to invent new ways to pull off such a crime. Inside Man is one of the most inventive that I have seen.

There are countless examples of strong entries in the genre. I'm particularly fond of The Killing, from Stanley Kubrick, which showed us how a robbery might be planned and executed. His use of a narrator was especially effective. Another favorite is Dog Day Afternoon, which is even mentioned in Inside Man. The original version of The Italian Job (1969) focuses on the getaway; Jackie Brown and Heat are more concerned with characters and the method; while more recent efforts, such as Reservoir Dogs and The Town, focus on events after the robbery has taken place.

Inside Man falls into the same category as The Killing and Jackie Brown, and it works because the method is so unusual.

The story opens with a shot of the gang's leader, Dalton Russell (Owen), advising us to listen closely to what he says. He hints at what is to come, but you might not appreciate the full meaning of his comments until you see the movie a second time. His team dresses as painters and seizes control of a bank, taking around 20 or 30 hostages in the process.

The movie doesn't stick to a completely linear structure. Instead, we see some of the former hostages being interviewed by the police after the robbery is over. This choice works well, and we gradually come to understand why Russell's gang made the hostages wear painter's outfits.
