The film is made largely without urgency, without concreteness, without any apparent awareness of the particular lives people are leading in America today.

Cruise's performance is a fine one, nicely seasoned with just the right touch of piquantness.

...Jamie Foxx manages to steal the show.

While Cruise was obviously the box office draw for Collateral, it was Foxx who was on a career-high in 2004.

Collateral holds up despite its more pedestrian elements.

If the final destination's a bit of a disappointment, getting there is a lot of fun.

Cruise lacked the deepdown malevolence required to bring Vincent to life. I wished him dead in the first few minutes he was on the screen -- and for the wrong reasons.

A visually striking film from the unhinged, endlessly creative mind of Michael Mann.

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.

Powerful but violent thriller -- not for kids.

In the homestretch the thrills get too generic and farfetched for their own good. But the first two thirds are a knockout.

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

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 very superior thriller with excellent direction and utterly top-notch performances...

Awesome vision and a compellingly villainous Tom Cruise save this cool contemporary noir from its lukewarm patches.

Every bit as satisfying as a thriller should be, keeping us hanging at every turn. As the credits roll, we are out of breath.
Aug 7, 2008
Strong performances and Mann's muscular direction provide plenty of tension, atmosphere and action-packed teeth.

It's a solid servicable thriller, one that works throughout watching it but not one that stands particularly out from the bunch...
Jul 30, 2007
A welcome change-of-pace dramatic thriller, in which the formerly too-emphatic director hints at depth rather than insisting on it.

Both actors and the director are having a great time and it shows in every frame.
