Inside Man – Filtered


NYPD hostage negotiators Detective Keith Frazier (Washington) and Bill Mitchell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are dispacted to a bank heist perpetrated by Dalton Russell (Owen). But the canny crook has a meticulous plan to disorient both the cops and his hostages. Soon, Frazier begins to think that Russell isn’t working alone, suspicions that aren’t eased by the appearance of Madeline White (Foster), a mysterious power broker who wants a private meeting with the thief. The bank’s director (Plummer) is inside the building, and it’s possible he’s not on the up-and-up either. With lives at stake and a crowd of curious New Yorkers outside, Frazier can’t afford to make one

Dove Review

Denzel, Denzel, Denzel! “Inside Man” was a great movie, especially if you enjoy watching Denzel Washington. It was captivating, interesting and it kept moving. The only violence was some shooting between the SWAT Team and the bank robbers, a couple of punches and some rough handling of some of the hostages. This filtered version has really been cleaned up well.

There is one scene where the robbers force the men and women to take their clothes off and change into matching outfits. You do see a few women in their bras and underwear and a couple of guys in their boxers, but it’s a fairly quick scene with no sexual intention. Overall, “Inside Man” would be a great watch and in this filtered version, is approved by Dove.
