Inside Man is a competent crime drama, but it falls short of its potential. The film’s disjointed narrative, underdeveloped characters, and uneven pacing keep it from reaching the heights it could have, despite its intriguing premise and talented cast. While Emile Hirsch and Greg Finley give good performances, the script ultimately falls short in terms of revealing the complexity of their characters.” C+ Caillou Pettis Movie Reviews
