A group of bank robbers stage a bank heist that turns into a hostage situation that turns into a locked room mystery. Detective Frazier (Denzel Washington) is assigned to the perplexing situation. He has to deal with the heist mastermind Russell (Clive Owen who sports a dodgy US accent). He also has to deal with the bank chairman Mr Case (Christopher Plummer) and his political fixer Miss White (Jodie Foster). It's soon apparent that Case has secrets hidden in the bank that he doesn't want revealed, but Russell does want them revealed.
This is a good film with some non-liner storytelling and a decent mystery and some humour.
