Storyline

LA cabbie Max Durocher is the type of person who can wax poetic about other people's lives, which impresses U.S. Justice Department prosecutor Annie Farrell, one of his fares, so much that she gives him her telephone number at the end of her ride. Although a dedicated man as seen through the efficiency in which he does his work, he can't or won't translate that eloquence into a better life for himself. He deludes himself into believing that his now twelve year cabbie job is temporary and that someday he will own his own limousine service. He even lies to his hospitalized mother that he already owns one, with a further lie that he tells her as such primarily to make her happy, rather than the truth which is that he won't do anything to achieve that dream. One night, Max picks up a well dressed man named Vincent, who asks Max to be his only fare for the evening. For a flat fee of $600, plus an extra $100 if he gets to the airport on time - Vincent wants Max to drive him to five stops ... Written by Huggo

Collateral - Must See
19 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off,Tom Cruise and Jamie Fox have the right stuff when your talking about great acting.I won't lie when I first purchase the movie I thought it was OK and then sold my DVD.About a month later I happen to see some interviews along with the making of this movie Collateral and thats when I decided to go back out and repurchase this great movie!I won't sell you on it but I will say its worth seeing along with all the extras about the making of Collateral.I never realize just how much effort was put into this film ,Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx along with the other cast members lay down solid performances. When you see Tom Cruise in this movie you see Vincent as he might had been in real life ,you feel the power in his speech and with his actions and thats what really makes this a great movie.Jamie Foxx takes on this cab driver acting role who keeps you on the edge of your seat most of the time and at other times gives you something to laugh about.If you haven't seen this movie Collateral then do yourself a favor and check it out,Tom Cruise just might make a successful hit on you,I'm giving Tom Cruise a BIG 10! Don't forget Jamie Foxx,hes a team player in this film!
