By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on August 6, 2012
Format: DVD
This four part British series about a heist gone wrong starts out so strong, it's difficult to maintain the incredible initial intensity throughout. But anyone who likes contemporary crime drama should definitely check out "Inside Men." This series has a refreshingly hard edge. Its central protagonists are not unscrupulous villains, but ordinary men looking for a shortcut to a better life. As two lower level employees (Warren Brown and Ashley Walters) at a money counting house look to skim from the take, they don't realize that this risky caper is going to open the door to something unfathomable. When discovered by their supervisor (Steven Mackintosh), his response is not what they would have predicted. Soon these three "inside men" are plotting a scheme that will net them millions! And as you might expect, it's not easy to plan the perfect crime.

The narrative is divided into two timelines that alternate back and forth within a given episode. The series starts in the midst of the big heist, and the other plot line backtracks to many months before the event. Not only, therefore, are we seeing the present-day heist spin out of control, we are seeing the tumultuous days leading up to the event. The actual action sequences are extremely well done and exciting, while the planning stage is also fraught with tension. All of the men have women and/or families that figure into the scenario in one way or another (kudos to Kierston Wareing, so good in The Take, for channeling her best Lady MacBeth as Brown's girlfriend). The beauty of this story is that you really never know where it is going. Having seen the heist in the opening episode, there are still plenty of surprises once the back story catches up and gives us a fresh perspective on what's going on.

Although this 2012, four-parter from the BBC exploded at the start but fizzled at the end, it's still an excellent story. Steven Mackintosh (Luther, Prime Suspect); Nicola Walker (Spooks, Last Tango in Halifax) and Ashley Walters (Hustle, aka the rapper Asher D) gave their usual superb performances.

Nothing particularly good, for anyone, it turns out. The lead is a meticulous strident little man caught in a life hemmed in by anxieties and fears, with petty ambition and an unhealthy co-dependent marriage he's headed for ulcers and middle age at the speed of ennui. Then something happens that gives him a chance to stand on his own, only it just happens to be acting as the inside man for a major heist at his own place of employment...

Shackled by generally unlikable characters and driven more by the conceit of a time jumping plot that gives away just enough to re-engage the audience this would be a tedious snore without this trick. It's entertaining and interesting and the performers do a solid job but it's more rental fair than purchase.

I was very excited to watch this series from the BBC. With actors like Warren Brown and Steven Mackintosh, it promised to be quite good!

I like the creative ways that the series goes back and forth between present and past, but at times it gets a bit confusing to maintain the correct order of events. What makes this series different from other heist movies is the look into the main characters' personal lives, and what influences their choices.

While I won't give anything away as to whether the heist is or isn't successful, the ending falls flat, with a few loose ends not tidied up. In addition, since most of us viewers expect dramatic endings, the lack of such left me a bit deflated. When one invests that much time in watching a series to see it end on such a bland note is disappointing.

Not my favorite BBC series, but I'd still recommend it. British TV manages to be so much more original and clever when it comes to scripts than American TV.
