3 stars out of 4 -- "Denzel Washington energizes the movie....[He] has the kind of star quality other actors would die for: unfakeable cool." Rolling Stone "[Lee's] most polished and satisfying work in years....[Foster delivers] her wittiest, most relaxed performance in ages..." New York Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "While he slaloms around the plot's slippery hairpins, Lee relishes the interplay of character that pulses through Russell Gewirtz's screenplay, and a pedigree cast helps him to tweezer out the tensions and innuendos." Uncut "Lee orchestrates the high-stakes drama with a slick adrenalised urgency that wouldn't be out of place in a multiplex actioner." Sight and Sound "Exceptionally well written with clever twists and witty dialogue by first-time screenwriter Russell Gewirtz, INSIDE MAN is adroitly executed by director Spike Lee."USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he first half's a gripper, twitchy and tense with plenty of nods toward modern urban anxieties..." Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Lee has managed to assemble a fantastic cast, with everyone from relative newcomer Ejiofor, to old-hand Plummer and especially Washington, as the slyly intelligent Frazer, making an impression." Ultimate DVD "It's smart, twisty, and talky." -- Grade: B+ Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "With a knowing nod to Lumet's DOG DAY AFTERNOON, Spike Lee shows he can deliver a straightforward heist thriller."Uncut "The screenplay, by Russell Gewirtz, operates confidently in action mod but is always willing to pause for an oddball encounter, a rambling story or a great, tossed-off joke."Wall Street Journal17.30469
