    Synopsis


    Collateral
    A taxi driver is unexpectedly taken on the ride of his life in this stylish thriller from acclaimed director Michael Mann. Max (Jamie Foxx) is a cab driver who hopes to some day open his own limo company; one night behind the wheel begins promisingly when he picks up Annie (Jada Pinkett Smith), an attorney working with the federal government who is attractive, friendly, and gives him her business card after paying her fare. Max thinks his luck is getting even better when his next fare, Vincent (Tom Cruise), offers him several hundred dollars in cash if he'll be willing to drop him off, wait, and pick him up at five different spots over the course of the evening. Max agrees, but he soon realizes Vincent isn't just another guy with errands to run -- Vincent is an assassin who has been paid to murder five people who could put the leaders of a powerful drug trafficking ring behind bars in an upcoming trial. As circumstances force Max to do Vincent's bidding, the cabbie has to find a way to prevent Vincent from killing again and save his own skin, a task that becomes especially crucial when he discovers Annie is one of the names on Vincent's hit list. Collateral also stars Mark Ruffalo, Peter Berg, and Bruce McGill as police detectives hot on Vincent's trail. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      One of Mann's last great films (IMO)

      With classics like HEAT, MANHUNTER, THIEF & LAST OF THE MOHICANS in his catalogue, it is somewhat dismaying that Michael Mann seems to be slipping in the last 10 years or so. One of the first big-name Hollywood directors to champion digital photography over film (alongside David Fincher), Mann seems to have allowed his sense of visual aesthetics to dwindle into amateurish TV-grade production levels since this, his first digital feature. MIAMI VICE was fun, but looked like doody at many points & I couldn't bring myself to watch PUBLIC ENEMIES because it looked like garbage. But I digress; COLLATERAL was/is fantastic! Tom Cruise is a new riff on his usual maniacal self & Jamie Foxx is excellent up against said mania. The disc is cheap & chock full of extras. And the storyline is kind of a further exploration of concepts in HEAT, concerning the communication and closeness of the good & bad guys...

      "Collateral" came out in a great year for Jamie Foxx. I believe that he also did "Ray" based on the life of Ray Charles that year. Cruise's character, Vincent, hires an innocent cab driver, Max (played by Foxx), to drive him for a whole night for a large sum of money. After reluctantly agreeing to the deal, Max realizes at first stop that Vincent is a hit man and he plans to kill someone at each stop. This is my kind of movie, in that it creates and grows in tension as the story unfolds. There is also a great philosophical aspect to the film as Max and Vincent talk about Max's life and Vincent's work. The movie has action, suspense and philosophical undertones, leading to an exciting conclusion. Highly recommended.

      Rather than focus on the film, I'll focus on the disc. That said, the film itself if solid and well worth owning. Michael Mann's movie is solid. The cast is great. The script it phenomenal. As for the disc, it's quite a treat. The film looks stunning. The film, which was shot with digital camera in part, looks great. Given the fact that this is an older film, there's a grain to it when the digital camera is in use. Honestly, it's a phenomenal transfer. The extras are ports from the original DVD and are a bit light, but Mann's commentary is worth a listen.

      I love this movie it's one of the best I have seen in recent years I watched the DVD on release and it's taken me a very long time to get around to buying the blu ray version. This blu ray for me is well worth the upgrade the picture quality is great and the audio is well up there to ! Even if you own the DVD like I do it's worth double dipping. As for the movie itself GREAT is all I'm gonna say fantastic the acting from cruise and fox is brilliant one of the best movies I have seen Tom cruise in and the man as been in a lot of films.

      Not a Tom cruise fan really but this is probably one of his best movies period. The movie would be 4 or 5 stars if not for the stupid ending and Jamey fox acting, his character, and his personal slime baggedNess. Overall a good blue ray for 5 bucks. I just stop watching when Jamey fox character goes from untrained cab driver to Cia trained super soldier because he's Jamey fox and he can.... If you can get passed the stupidity of the ending and suffer through fox, it's a decent movie..

      Collateral is a very interesting movie that require one to sit through and experience. From beginning to end, you feel connected to Max, and you can feel the horror he is going through. I can't spoil the story, but the plot itself is very engaging and takes some very unexpected turns. The match up between the two actors getting in each other's heads is worth checking. If you just want an entertaining movie on a week night, this is worth checking out.

      Tom Cruise shines through the darkness that is his character. He plays a hitman, a vagabond delivery service of crime and punishment while Jamie Foxx is his driver. He forces Jamie's character into a deal where he helps him (Tom) complete his jobs and he'll get a HUGE some of money... at what cost? Deception, Paranoia, Religion, and Philosophy wrapped in the basic human condition of how much can one guy take and is what you want/need really worth it?
