About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In the homestretch the thrills get too generic and farfetched for their own good. But the first two thirds are a knockout.
Fresh: It's straight-up entertainment, not something to see and then talk about a month later, but definitely something to enjoy.
Fresh: Throughout the gruesome cat-and-mouse game being played by Vincent and Max in Collateral, there's something psychologically, dramatically and even sociologically interesting going on.
Fresh: If Collateral is all formula, it's polished to a fine sheen.
This is a instant classic Tom and Jamie at there best
Well it's about time!
I've been waiting for this movie to appear on iTunes in 1080p for a long time! Tom Cruise was absolutely a beast in this movie! I'm surprised he didn't get any nominations! Jamie Foxx was also superb, and he received a well deserved nomination for best supporting role. Overall this was an excellent film and is truly one of Michael Mann's best.
Truly a sleeper
Top notch action, tension and acting. Great music score.
