We’re celebrating the 5-year anniversary release (August 6, 2004) of ‘Collateral,’ the suspenseful, action-packed thriller by director Michael Mann, starring Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Max (Foxx) is just a simple L.A. cab driver with big dreams, making his monotonous rounds one night when he’s stopped by the charismatic yet dangerous Vincent (Cruise). After Vincent offers Max a large sum of money to drive him around to five stops all night, Max accepts, only to discover Vincent’s a contract killer intent on fulfilling his obligations and making all five hits. With LAPD and the FBI racing to catch them, they have to rely on each other for their survival.
