5.0 out of 5 stars It's The Inside Man That Counts, 5 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Inside Man [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Denzel Washington and Spike Lee have been working together for many years now, and this is their 4th venture together, and this time, Washington is a detective, Keith Frazier - who's a bit of a maverick, yet does he best to take his work seriously. He's called to a robbery in the Wall Street area of New York, when a young man, and his compatriots decide to pull a robbery at a bank; with many hostages. Not only does he play games with Frazier, but he makes a tensioned-filled moment really tense.

This film just show what an excellent film maker Spike is, the story is detailed, yet he keeps the characters as enigmas which makes this even more fascinating than you would expect. Things like the plot, the actions of both men, and the power struggle are just so interesting you'll find it hard to take your eyes off the movie, and with this being the highest bitrate for Blu-Ray yet, you're not going to be disappointed.

The picture quality is amazing - with a steady 40Mb/s bitrate, using AVC video, the audio is flawless, and actually moving at times, with a steady 4024kbps True HD soundtrack, which is hard hitting at times. The music is beautiful too, which makes this even better soundwise, the leading theme played at the end and start sound as amazing as they did in the cinema when I went the first time round.

The extras are not bad, but you might be disappointed to know that they're in SD. For me this was not a big deal, as the making of and the number 4 featurette didn't really need the HD treatment. The 19 minutes of deleted scenes are great too, giving us more insight, but the best one has to be the making of, as it's interesting.

Altogether this is a fascinating take on e robbery, and well transferred to Blu-Ray- every moment is well captured and memorable.
