Great thriller! Solid cast with Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise.

A thriller to pass an evening without regret.

Great movie. Good plot. Nice build up to unexpected finale.

Very good action scenes, though some were in dark environment and hard to make out.... and others just could have been slowed down and not so "busy" (surrounding crowds, etcetera)....

Still, enjoyable entertainment.

Not to be confused with "Collateral Damage." Michael Mann, the master of sleek, nocturnal crime films ("Heat," "Thief") directs this sleek, nocturnal crime film about a hired killer who enlists a helpless cab driver to take him around L.A. as he shoots some people. As with most Mann movies, it looks great, but the movie has two fatal flaws: 1. I couldn't get past the premise. Why would a professional killer use a cab? Couldn't he just rent or steal a car? 2. Tom Cruise, in a rare villain role, is hard to buy as the hit man and you just keep thinking "Why is Tom Cruise's hair white?" Those issues aside, it's skillfully directed, tense, and well acted by Jamie Foxx as the cab driver and a rather underused supporting cast, including Mark Ruffalo, Javier Bardem, Peter Berg, and Jada Pinkett Smith. And, despite what another reviewer said, this is hardly an oldie; it was released in 2004. You might also like "Drive."

Michael Mann directs this nuanced, riveting, action thriller.

This is a very good movie. Cruise and Fox are great together. Story is excellent, a few rather long moments, of course a few unrealistic parts but overall very well done.

Although this film has many quiet scenes and a few good scenes with teriffic sound, it's still a great idea to watch this on your HOMETHEARTER. I'll probably get set-up for a hit when i say i wasn't feeling Jamie Fox in this movie. He's a very good actor but....There are a few good scenes for audio and one of my favorite is the disco club shootout.. The music is thumping and so Mr.Cruise gun. Each shot he takes sound powerful and it looks cool with him on the floor shooting at the bad guys. I did enjoy this film and i give it 4 stars. Good story and a very cool hitman. A large pizza with crushed potato chips and pepperoni. Home made lipton ice tea.

Oldie with Tom Cruise as an unlikely yet scary contract assasin who forced and involved a LA cab driver to his jobs which was to eliminate the key witnesses against a Mob king.
