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."
It looked like the perfect bank robbery. But you can't judge a crime by its cover.. 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.. Inside Man Wiki
A great watch of a movie. Greast cast and story that showcases just how talented Spike Lee is.
This is the 1st Denzel movie I actually wish I hadn't rented. Such an amazing cast and I was bored 😐 to death 💀. It's good as a sleeping aid. I'm really surprised at the good reviews. It could have been a great 👍 flick but was filmed, scripted so badly. Really disappointed 😔
This movie is supposed to be complicated - it's about a real moral dilemma that only few will understand. The message of the movie is relayed through the bank heist and will be realized entirely by those who have a moral compass. One quote in particular sums it up, as the Inside Man himself says: "Respect is the ultimate currency."
this movie tries to seem a lot more sophisticated than it is.
Complicated plot, several mis-directions, why were they digging up the floor? Who WAS the inside man? Clive? Well acted, but poorly written plot with more twists and turns than I could handle.
ok, but I won’t recommend to anyone.
Radio Rhett. Yes. You won't see "it" coming. Fantastic writing. Superb execution. Great acting. This is entertainment at its best AND it's plausible and I wish I had the mind that wrote Inside Man. Your gonna LOVE it.
The best bank heist film I have ever seen! Has it all: twists and turns, plenty of action, a villain you love to hate, and Denzel. Great film! 💵💵💵💰💰💰
Great movie with a well-written screenplay and superb acting. It will keep you engaged and guessing while displaying a wit and humor that will not leave you disappointed. It is definately added to my list of favorites... I can't believe I missed it. Two thumbs up to Spike Lee!
A good movie with bursts of dramatic acting - but mostly dialogue, but the story-line is easy to follow with everything coming together at the end. Great high-class actors. A modern crime movie.
It is serious and almost stressful; the viewer is left constantly searching and constantly shocked. Told in chronological order, the viewer is shown the beginning, given a clear account of what is happening and told exactly what the main character thinks is going to happen. The majority of the time the story is told from outside the bank however, there is a lot shown from inside too. At the end of the movie when extra information is discovered and existing information linked, the film turns into a masterpiece. Like a teacher solving a simple algebraic equation that a student has been struggling with for hours. There is new perspective and completion.
Superb. What a hero... (Though ending could have been a bit better...)
Extremely well planned, the whole movie flowed, giving more detail into the plot all the time. For those out there who complain the pace was too slow I disagree with. If you want a fast paced action movie with nothing but guns, cars, hot babes and more guns this is not the movie for you. This movie actually HAS a story, with an ACTUAL meaning.
Fantastic film, one of Denzel Washington's seldom overlooked films is actually quite well written and keeps the tension through the implementation of a non-linear plot, using recounts from the hostages in the bank. The ending is one of the best movie moments that really makes you 'ahhh' with mutual understanding and definitely leaves on a high note. Despite the presence of weapons and such, at the hands of the NYPD, don't expect any Michael Bay-esque explosions and firefights throughout Inside Man, instead utilising clever dialogue and plot complications to drive the story forward. Generally, a decent film.
This movie moved very slowly, I would not recommend this movie, just a waste of 2 hours! This is one of clive owen's worse films i have seen him in. If your a Clive Owen fan like me i would recommend "Derailed" if you havent already seen it!
alright movie. liked the ending
Not the best not the worst, just good action-kinda movie. It kept me interested the whole time, Denzel Washington as usual acts very well, Clive Owen also does the good job. It's definitely worth renting it.
The plot progressed very slowly. Not really worth the watch.
