Inside Man knows the right combination

29 Apr


What happens when director Spike Lee and producer Brian Grazer collaborate on a film? Actually, an entertaining bank heist film with a talented cast of veteran actors with pockets of Spike Lee’s signature style and commentary. Dalton Russel (Clive Owen) plans the perfect bank heist, but detective Keith Frazier (Denzel Washington) is much smarter than he expected. Lee successfully negotiates all of the moving parts of the film in a way that makes audiences want to figure out who the inside man is in the robbery.  Everyone is a suspect and that is the beauty of the film, but there are times that the film takes unnecessary detours for a moment and the exit interviews with hostages do not do enough to satisfy an audience’s curiosity. Spike Lee’s Inside Man knows the right combination to making something more than a simple action film.
