2006 M Contains violence and offensive language.

It looked like the perfect bank robbery. But you can't judge a crime by its cover.

Directed by Spike Lee, Inside Man stars Denzel Washington as New York police detective, Keith Frazier, a tough, street-smart cop fighting for a promotion while trying to live down accusations of misconduct connected to his last case.

When he and his partner, Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are despatched to the scene of an in-progress bank robbery and hostage crisis, Miller must face off against a well-educated criminal, Dalton Russell (Clive Owen), masterminding a concisely plotted operation. As negotiations grow more strained, a power broker with mysterious ties and a hidden agenda (Jodie Foster) becomes involved in the crisis, injecting even more instability into an already volatile situation.

Miller slowly begins to realise that in this ultimate game of cat-and-mouse, rules are arbitrary, all roles are up for grabs and the black-and-white of right and wrong has blurred to a shadowy landscape of grey.

Not flash... pretty predictable really, and you have to wonder, with the M rating for violence (which is minimal) and bad language (of which there is plenty) why why why do some movies even have to... Read more

Good twist and plot. Definitely worth a look. Acted well by all three leads - could have been more gripping though.

This was a pretty good story, it keeps you guessing right up until the end although the Jodie Foster part was a bit odd and didn't really fit in well with the overall storyline. Recommended viewing if you like suspense.
