Directed by: Michael Mann
Starring: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Jada Pinkett Smith, Mark Ruffalo, Peter Berg, Bruce McGill
Synopsis: A taxi driver is taken hostage by a hitman.
I liked the look and feel of the movie, the music was good, and the acting was good, although I'm not sure Foxx's performance was worth an Oscar nomination. Some things were a bit of a stretch (in a "what are the chances" sort of way) but the movie was interesting and worth watching.
I enjoyed the up-front character development, the drastic changes in camera angles and the choice editing. I found the movie engaging and particularly liked the overlapping and changing music, especially as it drowned out Cruise's monologues.Added 02 August 2006 at 9:16 PM
