Get ready to ride with Tom Cruise
and Jamie Foxx.
COLLATERAL opens on August 6th.
Max (Foxx) has lived the mundane life of a cab driver
for 12 years. The faces have come and gone from his rearview
mirror, people and places he's long since forgotten...until
tonight. Vincent (Cruise) is a contract killer. When an offshore
narcotrafficking cartel learns they're about to be indicted
by a federal grand jury, they mount an operation to identify
and kill the key witnesses, and the last stage is tonight. Tonight,
Vincent arrived in L.A...and five bodies are supposed to fall.
Circumstances cause Vincent to hijack Max's taxicab, and Max
becomes collateral-an expendable person in the wrong place at
the wrong time. Through the night Vincent forces Max to drive
him to each assigned destination. And as the LAPD and FBI race
to intercept them, Max and Vincent's survival becomes dependent
on each other in ways neither would have imagined. The cast
includes Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Jada Pinkett Smith, Dennis
Farina, Irma Hall, & Mark Ruffalo.
At a recent press conference to promote the film, Director Jonathan
Frakes as well as three of the stars, Brady Corbet, Vanessa Anne
Hudgens, and Soren Fulton, spoke about the Thunderbirds franchised,
while Jonathan also talked about doing kids' movies now
While there are many issues within the film, Lee never connects
the dots to make them coherent. They seem contrived and unbalanced,
and when it ends, you may have to roll the dice again to figure
this film out.
It's a fast action thriller that can live on its own without
having to see the first one. With less dialogue and more physical
skills needed, Matt Damon has elevated the spy genre to new heights
as he move into a category that only James Bond currently resides
Of all of the comic books that were made into feature films,
"Catwoman" stands out as one of the worst of them.Berry may look
good enough to fit the costume, but she doesnít possess the feline
bones that made Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt stand out.
I, Robot is more of a popcorn film than hardcore science fiction.
The result is a slick action film with a decent story. I, Robot
could have probably been better, but is enjoyable enough to warrant
If there was ever a sequel that captured the hearts and imaginations
of its fans as well as lived up to its massive expectations, it's
Spider-Man 2. It ranks right up there with Superman 2 and X-Men
2 as one of the best sequels to a comic book franchise.
Before Sunset is a deeply romantic, sublimely beautiful film.
It is cinematic poetry, a love story like nothing we've ever seen.
Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, and Richard Linklater have made a romance
to rival the classics. It is a lovely film.
Fahrenheit 9/11 will sweep like a hurricane across America
when it is released. It's a brilliant documentary in every possible
way. It runs the entire gamut of human emotion. It is funny, harrowing,
despicable, grotesque, heartbreaking, shameless, and informative
all at once.
