Director: Michael Mann
Starring: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx,Jada Pinkett Smith, Mark Ruffalo.
Collateral is a crime thriller film . It follows taxi driver Max Durocher(Jamie Foxx), who is held hostage by ruthless contract killer Vincent(Tom Cruise).
Tom Cruise is seen in a role that is poles apart from the “goody two-shoes” roles that cemented his position as a movie star. His portrayal of the cold, calculating and intimidating Vincent ranks among his finest performances, and certainly scores points on the “serious ” actor board. Jamie Foxx was splendid as Max, a cab driver who dreams of driving a limo someday,and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
If you’re a fan of neo-noir crime thrillers, Collateral isn’t a movie to be missed.
