Inside Man

Director: Spike Lee

Cast: Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, Clive Owen, Christopher Plummer

Cert: 15

When is a seemingly conventional bank robbery more than it appears?

When a group of people take over the premises and force everybody there to dress in similar boiler-suits, making no secret of the fact that this is a stick up … or is it?

You’ll love trying to out-guess the plot as Lee piles one box of herrings on top of another and gives detective Washington lots of twists and turns to figure out.

The fine cast works to pull it off – and not just the heist – and succeeds magnificently in a top-class thriller.

Star Rating: 4/5
