An efficient gang enters a Manhattan bank, locks the doors, and takes hostages. They work deliberately, without haste. Detective Frazier is assigned to negotiate, but half his mind is occupied with the corruption charges he is facing. The bank’s president has something to protect in a safe deposit box, so he brings in Madeleine White, a high-power broker with a hidden agenda. With an army of police surrounding the bank, the thief, the cop, and the plutocrat’s fixer enter high-stakes negotiations. Why are the robbers asking for a plane, if they are so competent and they know they won’t get one? Why aren’t they in more of a hurry? If the job’s perfect, why is the thieves’ leader in a cell?
Plot: When an armed, masked gang enter a Manhattan bank, lock the doors and take hostages, the detective assigned to effect their release enters negotiations preoccupied with corruption charges he is facing.

A pleasure from start to finish. An older Denzel Washington has begun to emerge, and his performance here suggests he has many good years left. Clive Owen is terrific as the mastermind. He, and the plot, keeps you guessing. And while there are plenty of clues, they are so well incorporated that very few viewers will see how this one comes together in the end.
One major quibble: Jodie Foster’s character is more archetype than person so it’s to her credit that she pulls it off as well as it does. However, don’t let that deter you from enjoying one of the best movies of the year. I’m glad to see Spike Lee tackle another genre film. He brings a re-invigorating approach to what, in other hands, would be a tiresome rehash. That liveliness seems to have worked on him, too — this is his best film in several years.
High time the academy gives Spike Lee some respect!
Whether I was into the subject or not, there’s always a filmmaker at work in a Spike Lee film… he’s one moviemaker who never loses sight of being a filmmaker first and foremost, and he’s absolutely outdone himself with INSIDE MAN, a taut thriller which avoids the colloquialism that alienated mainstream audiences from some of his earlier work.
If you’ve seen the trailer or heard anything about this pic, you have been misled. Everything I heard left me feeling like yeah, OK, I’m going for Denzel. Denzel vs. Clive Owen will be interesting.
From the first shots and opening credits, you are submerged in artistic vision, and a finely honed piece of work the likes of which I haven’t seen in years. I’d almost give this one a ten.. and I don’t hand out tens freely. I do not want to spoil this. You have to walk in cold, and let this film grab you by the short and curlies.
This is one film where there isn’t a spare frame or wasted cheap shot. Every zinger zings, and there are laughs too, laughs at merciful intervals to break the tension and remind an audience on the edges of its seats that movie-going’s supposed to be entertaining, dammit. The cinematography is brilliant, and the music is fantastic – true cinematic score, true genius. I can’t praise this one enough.
Christopher Plummer is superb, in what is (perhaps coincidentally) an ironic bit of casting. Jodie Foster rises to a challenging persona with aplomb and ease, and my only complaint of the entire exercise is that her character’s name ‘Madeline White’ is perhaps a little cliché. Beyond that, there isn’t a filmmaker alive who brings New York to the screen with anything approximating Spike Lee’s vision.
It seems there hasn’t been a lot of junket for this one, and that Spike Lee’s presence has been downplayed… as if the studio downplayed the fact that this is a Spike Lee film slightly, until the word was out that this film is over and beyond what an audience might already expect from one of his films.
So… let me just say.. man o man this is a cinematic mind-blowing amazing one and a half hours… it’s brilliant, tight, funny, articulate, intense, and high time the academy gives Spike Lee some respect.
