The film starts with gothic faces from New York City buildings with "Chhaiya Chhaiya" pounding in the background. Now that sort of purposeful incongruity suits Spike Lee really well. He is all about the melting pot. "Inside Man" is what Hollywood movies are all about or were at least supposed to be. Tight plot, stylized and popcorn fun. It doesn't matter how many plot holes it has. It is about speed and thrill. A fantastic 60s style thriller that keeps to entertained thoroughly.
