I'm suprised no one commented on this movie yet. But alas, since I have not seen this motion picture, I cannot indulge my positive or negative feedback. Either way, Joe, this was a good review. I really enjoy reading your material and I am very excited to see this mainly because I love Mann and I heard Foxx was good.

Just gone done watching this frisky flick tonight. I must say I was a little disappointed, especially in the ending. Ebert hammered the nail on the head when he said he had seen too many subway chase scenes at the end of films. Nevertheless, Collateral had this kinetic feeling and the character Max was really well drawn. I'd give it 3.5/5

Collateral, I was told, is a great movie. Joey Rickey seems to think so to. After summarizing the movie, he discusses the great filming and great actor Tom Cruise.
ďA gritty, washed out color palette is the rule of the day as Mann directs with vivacity; framing LA as one big hell hole of a town. Not very flattering, I know, but visually striking nonetheless.Ē reported Joey Rickey. I would have to agree with him on that. Also, I agree with him that Michael Mann used very good angles when filming. What bothered me was the scene changes. After some sort of dialogue, sometimes Mann filmed the person walking somewhere leading me to think that there was someplace the person was going that would be key in foreshadowing what comes next. But no, the person just walked for a couple minutes to absolutely nowhere, with absolutely no intentions of anything else and then BLAM, new scene. Along with mentioning the type of filming, he also mentions how good of an actor Tom Cruise is, and how well he portrays his character. I canít disagree.
One thing that surprised me in his review is that he doesnít mention the ending. Very anti-climatic, I think. Vincent (Tom Cruise) is shot and seems to have minor injuries. Max (Jamie Foxx) and Annie (Jada Pinkett Smith) run for their lives and find themselves on a subway, with Vincent following. After a little game of cat and mouse on the subway, Max comes and faces Vincent. They stare at each other a little while, then Vincent sits down and his head falls to his chest. The end! He seemed perfectly fine chasing Max and Jamie and then all of the sudden he dies. I totally disagree with Joey Rickey and his five star rating. Iím very glad I only paid $1.50 to see this movie.
