I don't like Tom Cruise very much, but he's brilliant in an against-type performance in this ridiculously underrated crime film from Michael Mann!

A very good movie and gets a better than average score of a three, so I gave it a 4. Like to see more of his movies. The author of the book the movie followed is very good and I have listened to many books she has written.

Tom Cruise & Jamie Foxx have a night of it in Foxx's cab. Cruise calls all the shots as a hired killer. Good watch.

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.
