Remember the movie Inside Man starring Denzel Washington? Well, this is not a review of that film. Inside Man: Most Wanted, streaming now on Netflix, is a “kind of” sequel. In one of the first scenes, the main FBI character, a hostage negotiator instructing recruits at the FBI Academy, points to lớn a photo of Detective Keith Frazier (played by Denzel) & praises his handling of the Nazi diamonds ‘takeover-style” ngân hàng robbery portrayed in the original movie.

In Inside Man: Most Wanted, a group of robbers storm The Federal Reserve ngân hàng of new york and hold the customers and bank employees inside as hostages. Dr. Brynn Stewart, an FBI agent negotiator, teams up with Detective Remy Darbonne, an NYPD negotiator, lớn bargain for the safe release of the hostages.


Before I nhận xét the film for FBI policy and procedure inaccuracies, a major issue with the movie’s premise should be noted. Federal Reserve Banks don’t serve the general public. Bank customers are the federal government và other banks. With billions of dollars inside, security measures to enter the facilities are extensive. Only securely vetted and identified visitors & groups are allowed inside for training and tours. No one can simply walk in off the street. (By the way, the exhibit at The Federal Reserve bank of Philadelphia is fantastic. Todd, thanks for the annual invite to lớn speak).

In Inside Man: Most Wanted the hostage negotiators are in charge. Throughout the movie, Agent Stewart & Detective Darbonne negotiate with the robbers for the well-being & eventual release of the hostages & conduct related interviews while at the same time battling with an NYPD SWAT team leader who wants khổng lồ carry out a dynamic rescue mission with guns a blazed.

In real life, during a crisis sự kiện like the one depicted in the film, FBI hostage negotiators would not be calling the shots. They would, instead, be part of a crisis response team coordinated by an on-scene-commander. Other crisis team participants would include SWAT, hostage negotiators, bomb techs, Evidence Response Teams (ERT), technical & other units. In situations where the big guns (pun intended) are required, FBI headquarters và the Critical Incident Response Group (CIRG) may also deploy the Hostage Response Team (HRT), a tier-one counterterrorism team & tactical unit capable of responding to lớn major critical incidents throughout the United States & the world.

Crisis managers from CIRG use management tools and resources khổng lồ coordinate and unify the different disciplines, and tactical strategies in response lớn crisis events, such as a hostage-taking, kidnapping, siege, and natural disasters. CIRG was established khổng lồ minimize the issues that surfaced during the Waco siege, where negotiators and HRT struggled to coordinate their disparate opinions và viewpoints on how to lớn resolve the standoff. In Inside Man: Most Wanted a CIRG-like intervention was sorely needed.

CIRG operates out of facilities located at the FBI Academy campus in Quantico và Stafford, VA. It should be noted that the NYPD, one of the largest police departments in the world, also has an equally capable crisis management unit.


My last observation regarding Inside Man: Most Wanted may seem khổng lồ be a bit superficial. Why was NYPD Detective Darbonne wearing an FBI ballistic vest during most of the movie? It was like a Philadelphia Eagles player wearing a NY Giants jersey. Weird, just weird.

(Disclaimer: My review does not critique the entertainment value of this movie. I’m here lớn educate và provide a reality kiểm tra for those who want to learn about the real FBI. I understand that attempting khổng lồ create an accurate portrayal of an FBI investigation is an impossible task if the investigation must be solved in less than two hours. However, to counteract the “CSI Effect” this sometimes creates, I’m pointing out a few issues.)
