A whole lot of suspension of disbelief is necessary to take this movie seriously. Let's just say Tom Cruise is one extremely merciful assassin. In one part he basically lets himself get shot. Even though earlier he had no problem taking out a squad of heavily armed cops. So many times I was distracted by the ridiculousness of the plot holes.

Collateral might actually be my favorite movie from Michael Mann. Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx both gave a great and unforgettable performance in this movie, and the fact that Tom Cruise is playing a villain was so brilliant and payed off excellently well, and that was pulled off by the writing, the directing, and Cruise himself. Michael Mann has a beautiful and yet stunning vision of LA nights that got me this warm feeling inside of me with this open world feel to it and the amazing cinematography that got me so awe-stuck. A lot of people say Heat is their favorite Michael Mann movie and while I do like Heat I got to say that I enjoyed and loved Collateral a little more.

Jamie Foxx is very good in his part, particularly during the scene when he has to bluff his way into the lion's den but it suffers for having a miscast Cruise in the role of the killer.

Vincent (Cruise) is in Los Angeles for ten hours to murder five people for a kingpin named Felix (Javier Bardem). His ride is a taxi cab, driven by the unsuspecting Max (Jamie Foxx), who’s been driving for twelve years while in the stagnant pursuit of his own limosine company; a dream he swears he will make happen. Vincent's proposal is for Max to drive him around for $600. Max is fine with the arrangement until a dead body falls on the hood of his car. There are soon some cops and feds in pursuit of both Vincent and Max, and the unbeknowing Max fears he has just met quite possibly his soul mate in …
