The castoff Inside Man
The leading actor is Denzel Washington who plays the part of Detective Keith Frazier, the master hostage negotiator connected with NYPD.

From the cell of a prison, an inmate informs us that he is going to conduct the perfect bank heist and asks us to watch him do it. Soon after a well-organized gang breaks into a Manhattan bank, locks all the doors from inside and begin taking several hostages. They are without any hurry, and do what they set out to do with calm deliberation. To solve this critical situation, the authorities assign Detective Frazier to do the negotiations. However, at that time his mind is heavily preoccupied with the many corruption charges that he is facing. Besides, the CEO of the bank has something very important to protect, and it is kept in a safe deposit box. To resolve this situation, he invites Madeline, a high-power broker who has her own hidden agenda. With a troop of policemen surrounding the affected bank, the cop, the thief, and the tycoon's fixer go through negotiations for very high stakes. What puzzles everyone is the fact that the robbers are demanding a plane, when they are so sure that they are not going to get one. Then there is also the fact the robbers are in no hurry at all to get the ransom and make a quick getaway. And if it is a perfect robbery as the robber's leader claimed, why is he still in cell? Puzzles that escapes an answer! The only way to find out is to buy the DVD of the famous movie.
