    Cruise Steals the Show

    Tom Cruise is the guy everybody loves to hate, and he's given many people ample reasons to over the years. But after watching his performance in Collateral, I will tell you this Tom Cruise can act, and he can act very well. Cruise plays Vincent, a cold-blooded contract killer who is simply the best at what he does. His job in L.A is simple, take down five witnesses in a drug case for a Narco-terrorist cartel. At least it would have been simple if his first victim didnt fall onto the roof of his cabbie's car. Jamie foxx is that cabbie, and he realizes that his life will never be the same. I liked foxx immensly in this role, it was a nice change of pace from his portrayals of brash, arrogant men. As Max, Foxx is humble and thoughtful, and a little undermotivated. He becomes Vincent's escorteee, and as the death toll mounts, things start to unravel. Haunting and Powerful, with the surreal nightlife Of L.A. as it's backdrop, Collateral is a pure adrenaline rush.

    Michael Mann's vision is truly very awesome.

    Michael Mann's new movie Collateral is nothing short of a masterpiece. The characters were throughly played out. The Picture looks crisp clean and the action and plot twists are placed gracefully. Tom cruise's character is by far the best and a really cold sadistic killer. Max is a humble yet smart character who doesn't show it till the end. ITs truly worth buyin!!

    Story, Cast, Direction, all shine

    Wasn't really sure about renting this originally. Too many action movies out there with two male actors are becoming rather predictable. This movie had me hook, line, and sinker from beginning to end. Cruise plays one of the most cold, calculated, and unsympathetic contract killers ever committed to film. Foxx does a great job as a low key cabbie who gets caught up in the whole mess. And the photography and direction is almost a character in itself. Thoroughly enjoyable!!

    Outstanding... all the way around!

    Short... sweet and to the point. One of the best of 2004... period. Tom Cruise puts forth an outstanding performance... anyone who says other wise was a Cruise hater going into this. Jamie Foxx... WOW... blew my socks off! Most under rated movie of 2004 no doubt... what a thrill ride... rent it... buy it... whatever... just watch it and enjoy!!!

    Best Picture of the Year

    This was easily the best picture of year. It was enthralling. You didn't know what was going to happen. This is in my top ten along with Cruise's last flick 'The Last Samurai'. Cruise and Foxx should win Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor.

    I'm going to buy this movei !!!

    This is an excellent film that is worth owning. Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx were both outstanding. It was both great and strange to see Tom Cruise playing a bad guy. He looks great, too. Every minute is good. I swear Cruise gets better as he gets older.

    Outstanding Movie!!!

    "Collateral" is one of the best acton packed movie that I've ever seen. Tom, Jamie, and Jada all give Oscar worthy performances. Definitely, a classic movie.

    Definitely a 'darker' Tom Cruise in 'Collateral'

    Michael Mann's film "Collateral" was a great film. It was not only action-packed, but it was very interesting and engaging. I was on the edge of my seat when I saw it in the theater. It was quite something to see Tom Cruise in a performance as a "bad" guy, which exactly what his character of the sadistic hitman named Vincent was! Jamie Foxx, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Mark Ruffalo turned in good performances too! When this comes out on December 14th on DVD and VHS, I do intend to buy this film on VHS to add to my video collection! Next to the 1995 hit film "Heat", Mann has directed another winner! Kudos to both Cruise and Mann for this watchable, engaging crime drama!!!
