Epic!! one of the best movies in recent years i loved this & own the bluray.
Unexpectedly good. Both Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx give some solid performances. The plot is simple but it's very well done and engaging. The subway train scene is my favorite, I loved every second of it.
Surprisingly funny and entertaining to watch for a movie with as simple a plot as Collateral has: professional killer Vincent has to eliminate 5 targets in one night to avoid a trial against an drug lord. To get around fast enough in L.A. he hires a cab for the entire night and by making the cabbie Max his accomplice after the first murder, Vincent tries to force Max to cooperate for the remaining 4 murders. While Max tries to obstruct Vincent as much as possible, he only achieves the killing of bystanders when they get shot be Vincent or the police during the 2nd, 3rd and 4th murder.
Shortly before the last target is located, Max can stage an accident with his cab and thereby escape from Vincent's grip, only to find out that the last target is a recent acquaintance of his: DoJ prosecutor Annie. Max then risks his own life to safe Annie. That he achieves only in an all-out gun shooting with Vincent, which he miraculously wins. This ending (cab driver Max shooting the professional assassin Vincent) and the casting of Tom Cruise for the role of Vincent are the two things that I did not like about Collateral.
Sehr beeindruckender Film!
Hat mich zum nachdenken gebracht!
