Pretty Good Thriller!!, 20 March 2007
Author: Rolf Pavian from Finland

This film is not as bad as you might think by reading the other user comments. Of course The Inside Man is not original or artistic thriller, but I think it is far more better than an average thriller. The production values are not high, so the filmmakers haven't even try to make spectacular action-scenes. And that's good. Otherwise the film could have been unintended humorous.

And I don't agreed what people say about the accents. Gösta Ekman's 'Swenglish' doesn't disturb me. Ekman is a charismatic actor and I like the way he talks. And i't's great to see him with such great stars as Hopper and Krüger. But I agreed with those who think that the role of Thomas Kallin should have played by someone else than Kåre Mölder. Rolf Lassgård would have been suitable for that part.
