5.0 out of 5 stars A Taxi Drivers worst nightmare... But what a film!, 13 Jan 2005
This review is from: Collateral - 2 Disc Collectors Edition [DVD] (DVD)
After seeing this movie it is hard to beleive that some were put off it by the fact that cruise plays the villian. Indeed Cruise delivers one of his greatest performances to date as a ruthless human-first Killer-second manhunter, who hijacks the taxi off Max, Brilliantly played by Jamie Foxx. However this movies' streanth is not just in it's biseps, it is firmly a directors film and Mann excells himself, creating a picture that is both edgey, thrilling, gritty, and incredibly cool. Mann describes this film as an 'excestential drama', and most of the films dialouge does concern itself with the meaning of life (brought on by the profession of Cruises' character), but the brilliantly constructed action sequences and tense atmosphere place it squarley in the realm of the great action thrillers, it sits side by side with movies like 'the hunt for red october' and 'patriot games'. Having said this, it does sport a pridictable ending (and I mean REALLY pridictable) but this doesn't stop it from reaching that last star. You must see this film.
