Great heist Drama movie. Not seen many of Spike Lee's work, but this one has to be one of his best.

Da grande fan di heist movie le mie aspettative per questo film erano elevate, ma in fin dei conti sono rimasto piuttosto deluso. Sotto gli aspetti tecnici il film convenzionale e accademico: la colonna sonora fuori luogo, la fotografia banale e il film in generale diretto senza uno stile preciso e senza scelte originali. Se sotto gli aspetti tecnici non eccelle, ha i suoi buoni momenti sulla trama e sulla sceneggiatura. Tralasciando rari dialoghi ridicoli, il film ha una storia ben strutturata e ben pensata, che funziona grazie ad un antagonista motivato, intelligente e realistico. Purtroppo questi aspetti positivi non riescono a salvare un film che non riuscito a coinvolgermi come voleva, soprattutto per la mancanza inaccettabile di uno stile personale e unico di un regista come Spike Lee.

Not bad, but a little slow and odd at times.

What's the meaning of inside man? Who's inside the game....... seems to be the criticism to the wealth, while the candle stand implies the most iconic moment in the movie.

Clive Owen carries this smart heist thriller as best he can, but Inside Man is overall a forgettable experience.

Had the feeling of a brian grazer production...perhaps would have ben better with Ron Howard taking the wheel...

Even a good Spike Lee film is shit.

An entertaining heist movie with some good plot twists. Denzel Washington carries this film from start to finish with a good supporting cast as well. Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, William Dafoe, Christopher Plummer, and Chiwetel Ejiofor are all good as well. This is a good addition to the bank robbing genre. Good job Spike Lee.

It's good movie to watch

Here's a film that rates just a little bit lower every time I see it. In many ways it's a decent genre exercise. A clear work-for-hire for Lee, but he clearly takes the assignment seriously and adds a lot of interesting touches to what could be generic fodder, and attracts a fine cast in the process. What he can't really fix though is a screenplay that needed more work. It has a good set up and at least one decent twist, but it drags it's feet during the middle hour and introduces entire characters (Jodie Foster) that are nothing but pointless red herrings. In the end, I can't buy a critical plot point that without spoiling anything, involves my needing to believe that Christopher Plummer is at least 20 years older than he clearly is, and would still be the active chairman of a major bank even if he was.

It is so rare a thing; to see one of those 'bank-robbing' movies and leave so satisfied with every aspect. Owen and Washington were destined to play their respective parts in the film and complement each other well. The plot was both engaging and unpredictable with subsequent plot twists being exciting and the outcome, unexpected. Without a doubt, this relatively unknown film is a 'diamond in the rough' of repetitive 'detective hostage mystery' films that seem to bore audiences to death.

Unusual heist thriller with a great cast and intriguing twists.

Spike Lee as always, great satisfying story with 0 mistakes, ultimate favorite
½ August 26, 2016
Not entirely Fresh nor Certifiable. This is a Spike-Denzel near cliche with Jodie just clinging to the vine. Almost overripe. And a tad slow in places with all the flashbacks. The end was only partially perfectly clear and should've been better. SPOILER ahead ... (close eyes quick)




... a twist on Robin Hood.
