Someone's been playing a little too much Hitman on their PlayStation 2.

We're supposed to be fascinated by what makes Cruise's Vincent tick, but he turns out to be just a heavily armed gasbag.
May 10, 2004
A master of grand operatic gestures, Mann's broad-sided portrayals of machismo don't work when confined to a chamber piece.

Somewhere along the way, the gimmick and suspense had worn out leaving the only real gray matter as the product coloring Cruises' hair.

[Mann's] still looking out the car windows for something to make a movie about as he's filming the convictionless scenes.
August 3, 2004
A slim drink of thin beer, remarkable only as evidence that Mann might have a modern masterpiece in him if he were cut loose and allowed to roam around in his own obsessions.
August 6, 2004
Collateral is the kind of sleek Maserati that can make men weak in the knees, but the sad truth is that it has a straight-4 under the hood.

August 6, 2004
A fairly typical bang-bang exercise with outrageous shootouts, lots of dead bodies and well-placed comic relief.

Feels a lot like the sort of stock, early-'80s thrillers that Mann once tried to make extinct.
August 6, 2004
A suspense thriller with little real suspense and few thrills.
August 6, 2004
As realistic as an episode of HBO's Taxicab Confessions, without that stimulating voyeuristic quality modern audiences crave.

I empathized with Foxx's plight: Collateral dragged me on a long, violent ride in the dark to nowhere.
September 9, 2004
There's another, more interesting movie lurking behind the pulp, glimpsed fleetingly in a stunningly-angled shot or a tantalizing line of dialogue.

in a flick where soap operatic contrivances literally kill the mood, coincidental twist endings just ain't cool

Could someone please let Michael Mann know that we're in the 21st Century, Miami Vice has been cancelled and he can move on?

August 2, 2004
A pretty cool idea, however, two or three "unbelievabilities" soured the film for me; they might not for you.

While engaging the senses, it starves the brain...the picture is all flash and no light--but the flash is brilliant.

It's too bad that halfway through, Collateral turns into a series of loud, chaotic, over-the-top action set pieces in which the existentialist Mann proves he's lousy at action.
