A dangerous game of cat and mouse ensues when a hired hitman is contracted to kill the key players in an upcoming trial against a drug kingpin. The hitman's usual M.O. becomes compromised when the cab driver that he hires to shuttle him around Los Angeles becomes wise to the killer's true intentions. When the hitman turns his sights on the beautiful attorney that the cab driver met earlier in the evening, the cabbie must rely on all of his wits and knowledge of the city to save them both.

I detest Tom Cruise, but he is amazing in this motion picture, playing Vincent, a hit man who goes all out to complete his mission. Jamie Foxx was nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Max, a cab driver who unluckily picked up the wrong fare. Mark Ruffalo is brilliant portraying Fanning, an L.A. Cop who understands a puzzle that no one else can put together.
The story combines first class character building, but combines it with a suspense filled environment which makes Alfred Hitchcock sit on the edge of his coffin. It's truly unreal.
If you're looking for a great way to spend two hours, and you love suspense, action, and drama, rent this, but this, own this amazing piece of motion picture masterpiece.
Vincent forces Max to drive him from hit to hit. Out of fear for his life, Max complies, desperately seeking a way out. Along they way, they develop a relationship of sorts--not a buddy relationship--but a symbiotic one. Vincent needs Max's driving skill; Max needs Vincent's brazenness to draw him out of his "nice guy" shell, so he can put his destiny back into his own hands.
The movie is well-acted. Foxx is at times sympathetic, and also noble. Cruise plays the villain perfectly--a complex character that defies stereotypes. I particularly enjoyed the philosophical musings. Vincent's worldview might be nihilistic, but he lives consistently with it. Jada Pinkett Smith is solid as Max's love interest. Mark Ruffalo, always memorable, has a small part--I wish his role would have been expanded some.
The blu-ray transfer is good. Virtually the entire movie takes place at night, so most scenes involve low lighting. Despite this, the film grain is not too noticeable. Detail is good. The sound was fine.
Parental Advisory: This movie is rated R for several scenes involving strong violence. It is also punctuated at times with strong language.
I recommend this movie for mature movie watchers. While the violence is visceral at times, director Michael Mann has given us a glimpse into the heart of darkness--a man devoid of conscience who acts consistently with his worldview. Pitting him against an "every man" makes for some interesting interactions. How far would you be willing to go in order to stop evil?
