Movie Review: Inside Man

We watched Inside Man the other night. This movie was better than I expected. It was full of plot twists, well developed characters, good guys/bad guys that were hard to discern and at least one evil bastard getting what they deserve.

Bank robbers, disguised as painters, march into the busy lobby of Manhattan Trust, a cornerstone Wall Street branch of a worldwide financial institution. They waste no time rounding up the patrons as they start the wheels rolling on the ultimate heist.
NYPD hostage negotiators Detectives Keith Frazier (Denzel Washington) and Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) have the unenviable job of making contact with the heist’s ringleader, Dalton Russell (Clive Owen), in hopes of finding a peaceful solution to the situation.
Things getting even more complicated for Frazier with the entry of Madeline White (Jodie Foster), a seemingly all-powerful player with less than transparent motives. She demands a meeting with the ringleader and has the mayor present to ensure she gets it.
The hours drag by and Frazier becomes convinced that robbery is not the primary object of the standoff. Things are afoot and tries desperately to cling to unraveling pieces before the robbery turns into a bloodbath.

What are the robbers really after? Do the good guys win and the bad guys go out in body bags? I guess you will just have to see it to find out. I recommend that you do just that.

Rating: five stars.
