    A suspense story enriched by its psychological dimension and three quietly compelling performances.

    It's in the relationships that these men come home to that defines Inside Men as markedly more engaging and effective than a great deal of its ilk.

    The performances are all first-rate, so much so that they help the audience overcome very minor skepticism when events in Tony Basgallop's script feel a bit too convenient to be entirely credible.

    It's such a bravura, tightly wound performance--played with restrained intensity by the kind of star seldom featured on American TV--as to keep one glued to the show right up until its slightly anticlimactic, disappointing payoff.

    It's got a smart pace, good performances and it's a relief not to have to commit to something long-term.

    A lean moral thriller, Inside Men considers the core impulses of such justification, and draws out severe implications with considerable skill.

    The story ends with a final, not quite believable, flourish on John's part, but Mr. Mackintosh carries it off, riding comfortably above his middling material.

    I watched Inside Men on BBC 1 in February and thought it was a great drama. its a good crime doesn't pay story about an armed robbery at a secure money counting house in England . i recommend it for its good story and great cast. Expand
