The film has a strong rating of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Listen, the weather is a bit dull, sp we won’t hold it against you if you’re planning on spending this Monday evening inside watching some movies on TV.

In fact, we’re here to facilitate that scenario, by providing you with the best options for tonight, with our pick of the bunch being a star-studded crime thriller – Inside Man.

The 2006 flick from Spike Lee only needs one name to get you excited – Denzel Washington. However, starring alongside him are Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Christopher Plummer, Willem Dafoe and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Denzel stars as Detective Keith Frazier, the NYPD’s hostage negotiator, assigned to negotiating with the perpetrators of a bank heist on New York’s Wall Street that descends into a hostage situation.

Inside Man has been praised for its smart plot, its twists and particularly the performances of Washington and Foster, who plays a Manhattan power broker who is hired to act as a “fixer” in response to the bank heist.

With an 86% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Inside Man is absolutely worth your time if you love crime thrillers.

The movie remains one of Lee’s most successful films and is a rare example of the iconic director going full Hollywood.

You can check out Inside Man tonight on Film Four at 9 pm or catch it anytime on Netflix.
