Inside Man

Inside Man, featuring Denzel Washington in his usual detective role as Keith Frazier, and Jodie Foster as Madeleine White is rated R for violence and language. This movie takes you deep into the plot of a bank heist on one of the main banks in, where else, New York city. It starts off with a chilling scene of Clive Owen as Dalton Russell, telling you that he has the perfect plan. He's only going to tell you once, however, so pay very close attention.

The many many twists and turns in this plot will have you glued to your seat, and with any good Drama/Thriller you'll think you have it all figured out. Or do you? Tantalizing flashes of strange plans will have you wondering if you know the master plot at all. Then you meet Miss Madeleine White and, of course, the plot thickens. All of a sudden a "simple" bank heist turns into something rather different. You start to wonder if the money is what they're really after.

But of course, you can't forget the hostages, and at the moment? Every single one of them is a suspect. Detective Frazier can't be sure who to trust and he's got a rather large puzzle on his hands.

Think you can figure it out? Good luck! I thought I had until the very end. Unfortunately in some ways this plot seems to come up short. It has all the right twists, and will keep you glued to your seat, but in the end it's not that original. Compare it to any other bank heist/mystery movie and it just follows the formula. Still, it's worth going to see, and it'll definitely keep you watching. I give it Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
