I'm not even pretending to be a reviewer but I saw Spike Lee's new movie, Indside Man, last night. It's a cracking good story and in my opinion, well worth seeing. Denzel Washington stars as a hostage negotiator for the NYPD who is assigned to respond to a Manhattan bank robbery in progress with multiple hostages. There are enough twists and turns to the plot to keep you talking about it all the way home and then some. My only quibble with the movie would be that Willem Dafoe as the uniformed officer in charge on scene seems to have gotten short shrift in the final cut and that's a waste of a really fine actor.
This isn't a "scenery" movie but I still think it will work better on the big screen rather than waiting for DVD just because of the scope of the robbery scenario. This isn't a couple of small timers in pantyhose masks trying to score a few thousand bucks at a branch bank in the suburbes.
As I said I'm no reviewer but I did like this movie...a lot! It has an R rating but that seems to be almost exclusively for language.
