I loved it.

Top Critic

The year's best action thriller with excellent performances from its two leads and Mann's brilliant direction making something as pedestrian as a taxi ride a pulse-pounding thrill ride.

Lyles' Movie Files

Powerful but violent thriller -- not for kids.

Common Sense Media

Mann takes a predictably clichéd, far-fetched crime yarn and transforms it into a fascinating thriller.

Movie Metropolis

If anyone is ever to mount an argument for the superiority of video over film, this movie would of necessity be very near to the center of that argument.

A captivating, accelerative, albeit glossily cliched ride through LA after dark. Shout-out to the horrible soundtrack and the awfully boring side characters.

I'm definitely not comfortable seeing Tom Cruise in negative character but he was good.
