The volatile showdown between a determined cop and a perfectionist bank robber is sent spiraling toward disaster when a scheming power broker steps in to take control of the situation in this hair-raising heist flick directed by Spike Lee and starring Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, and Jodie Foster. Dalton Russell (Owen) is a bank robber with a difference. In his quest to execute the perfect heist, Dalton has taken every possible factor into consideration. Dalton's uncanny ability of staying one step ahead of the law thwarts even-tempered Detective Keith Frazier's (Washington) best efforts. But there's another factor at play. The bank president (Christopher Plummer) has requested the services of high-profile negotiator Madeline White (Foster). Despite her commendable track record, Madeline is something of a wild card, and before the day is over, this bank robbery will go down in history as one of the most elaborate heists ever executed. (

Spike Lee's direction coupled with Denzel's on-the-fly, from-the-hip acting merge wonderfully in this totally satisfying detective/heist thriller.

My favorite element in the film is Fraizer's slow metamorphosis from modern, police-procedural style NYPD officer, all business and bulletproof vest, to straight-up no chaser noir detective with attitude and cream colored suit to match. It's an enjoyable homage that sneaks in just under the radar, and by the time you notice it the transformation is complete.
