Spike Lee Does it again!

Mar 26, 2006
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:A great movie with lots of twists and turns!

Cons:slightly unrealistic, but very well done indeed!

The Bottom Line: Definitely spend the money on this flick...I don't think you will be disappointed..,this is the closest thing to the next "Usual Suspects"


This Spike Lee Joint is absolutely terrific. It is my understanding that this is really the first movie that Spike Lee had any kind of a budget for whatsoever, so if you were not a huge fan of his previous movies, do not let that deter you! Starring Denzel Washington and Clive Owen, The Inside Man is an awesome detective movie that will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat until the very last minute.
Denzel Washington plays a New York City detective and hostage negotiator who gets assigned to a hostage situation at a prominent New York City bank. The twists and turns are endless as the criminals have planned out the operation nearly flawlessly. In many ways this movie is on the same level as The Usual Suspects is, and when it comes to drama and thriller and mystery movies, it can not get any better.
The movie runs one hour and twenty-nine minutes, and is worth every minute! I do not want to give away too much of the story but the following will summarize it as best as possible without giving away too much plot detail:
There is a bank heist and the criminals inside seem to be motivated by something other than the money that they have at their will. There are many hostages but much of the details of the robbery are unknown because surveillance footage is unavailable (due to some nifty operations by the hostiles). In the end, the twists and turns will surprise you!
I should also note that Spike Lee’s use of camera styles and his method of telling and unfolding the story is quite unique, and a pleasure to watch. It is a change from the monotonous style that is so often perverse in movies today. I definitely recommend that anyone who likes to be thrilled and watch stories twist and turn right in front of them go see this movie!
