Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Told over the course of four one-hour episodes, Inside Men might be too plodding for some tastes, but it's a boon for viewers who appreciate an artfully crafted narrative. In fact, the real pull is a well-penned script that reveals critical plot points and character traits in a manner that keeps you interested -- and is also inherently interesting. The whole heist thing's been done before; it's just never been done quite like this.

There are three main characters to contend with. But at the center of it all is John Coniston, a seemingly upright citizen ruled by a complex moral compass that leads him to make some surprising choices. Good role models in Inside Men might be hard to come by, but there's good fodder here for discussion with older kids about right and wrong.
