Olga and I went to the movies to see “Collateral“. We both don’t like Tom Cruise, but I’ve got kind of interested in Michael Mann‘s work.

The movie turned out to be pretty good. It is somewhat slowly paced, but good. The story is interesting, actors deliver, and there was some nice camera work. Face close-ups added to the feeling of a huge city, which was one of the intended characteristics of the film. I also liked the way police work was shown, as well as professional assassin perspective on it all. Jamie Foxx performance was excellent.

The movie does not require a huge screen or sound surround system, so you can easily watch it at home on DVD. I would rate is a 7 out of 10.
