Collateral holds up despite its more pedestrian elements.
February 2, 2018
If the final destination's a bit of a disappointment, getting there is a lot of fun.
May 17, 2015
A visually striking film from the unhinged, endlessly creative mind of Michael Mann.
April 18, 2013
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.
December 22, 2010
Powerful but violent thriller -- not for kids.
July 6, 2010
In the homestretch the thrills get too generic and farfetched for their own good. But the first two thirds are a knockout.
April 5, 2010
Mann takes a predictably clichéd, far-fetched crime yarn and transforms it into a fascinating thriller.
June 30, 2009
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.
April 29, 2009
A very superior thriller with excellent direction and utterly top-notch performances...
December 21, 2008
Awesome vision and a compellingly villainous Tom Cruise save this cool contemporary noir from its lukewarm patches.
October 18, 2008
Every bit as satisfying as a thriller should be, keeping us hanging at every turn. As the credits roll, we are out of breath.
August 7, 2008
Strong performances and Mann's muscular direction provide plenty of tension, atmosphere and action-packed teeth.
January 15, 2008
It's a solid servicable thriller, one that works throughout watching it but not one that stands particularly out from the bunch...
July 30, 2007
A welcome change-of-pace dramatic thriller, in which the formerly too-emphatic director hints at depth rather than insisting on it.
July 14, 2007
Both actors and the director are having a great time and it shows in every frame.
August 20, 2006
chic, solid filmmaking
June 24, 2006
I loved it.
December 6, 2005
Mann's taxi driver saga may not quite reach the level of art but, anyway you cut it, it's anything but standard fare.
December 6, 2005
Still a hell of a ride, but could've used a smoother landing.
July 25, 2005
How does director Michael Mann capture urban twilight so well?
