Collateral

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Action/Adventure; Starring: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Javier Bardem, Dennis Farina, Jada Pinkett Smith, Mark Ruffalo; Director: Michael Mann; Author: Stuart Beattie; Producer (person): Frank Darabont; Release Date Wide: 08/06/2004; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 116; Distributor: Dreamworks Distribution L.L.C.

Michael Mann?s tensely funny and alive L.A. night-world thriller is, in its way, a very high-stakes buddy movie. Vincent(Tom Cruise), a hitman, hires Max (Jamie Foxx), a mellow cabbie who becomes his hostage, driver, and wary pupil in Nietzschean self-glory. The film generates suspense by dividing our sympathies in clever and unexpected ways.
