Rating: 7/10 -- If anyone is ever to mount an argument for the superiority of video over film, this movie would of necessity be very near to the center of that argument. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: 4/5 -- For Vincent's sharp-witted command of the cab and the echoes of The Third Man and Heat, Collateral is well worth targeting.
[A] feast for the eyes....[Mann] really uses the electronic sheen that comes with the format.
I loved it. Full Review
[An] elegantly crafted and genuinely thrilling thriller....The crackling-smart script was written by Stuart Beattie...

Collateral holds up despite its more pedestrian elements. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- Mann takes a predictably clichéd, far-fetched crime yarn and transforms it into a fascinating thriller. Full Review
Jamie Foxx plays Max, a Los Angeles cab driver who has a pretty wild night in this thriller from Michael Mann (HEAT, THE INSIDER). First, Max picks up, flirts with, and gets the number of Annie (Jada Pinkett Smith), an attractive District attorney. Next, Vincent (Tom Cruise) climbs into his cab. He is a professional hit man who reserves Max for the night with a whole shopping list of victims he needs to visit. As the night moves forward and the body count rises, Max must wrestle with the question of how to do the right thing while staying alive. Gradually the two men bond in unlikely ways, as each learns survival mechanisms from the other, and it all doubles as a metaphor for morality vs. capitalism. Mark Ruffalo and Peter Berg play cops who eventually get on Max and Vincent's trail, leading to a spectacular action set piece inside a night club. Irma P. Hall (2004's THE LADYKILLERS) gets laughs as Max's hospitalized "momma," and Javier Bardem (BEFORE NIGHT FALLS) is a sinister drug lord. With a capable director like Mann at the wheel, this remains a smooth, enjoyable ride while also being fast, bumpy, and full of twists and turns. The streets of urban, nighttime Los Angeles--captured via a specially modified digital camera--never looked so beautiful or desolate. As typical of the director, the film is both artistic and action-packed; operatically over-the-top while never skimping on the little details.
