Collateral

Collateral is a 2004 crime thriller film starring Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx. It was directed by Michael Mann and written by Stuart Beattie.
The film is set in Los Angeles, California. In an HBO movie review, director Michael Mann stated that the film takes place on the night of January 24 to 25, 2004 from 6:30 PM to 5:40 AM.


The film is notable for featuring perhaps the only morally-questionable character that Tom Cruise has portrayed. There was substantial praise for the performance of Jamie Foxx, including an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor nomination.

Cab driver Max Durocher (Jamie Foxx) drives U.S. Justice Department prosecutor Annie Farrell (Jada Pinkett Smith) to work. During the drive, she tells him about an upcoming case she's prosecuting and he tells her about his dream of owning his own limousine service. Annie leaves Max her business card. Moments later, Max picks up a man named Vincent (Tom Cruise), who was seen earlier exchanging a briefcase with a stranger (Jason Statham) at Los Angeles International Airport.
Vincent directs him to a tenement building, and impressed with Max's efficiency, asks him to be his personal chauffeur for his remaining stops. Max at first declines, but Vincent offers him $600 if he takes him to several locations. Max reluctantly agrees. Minutes later, a body drops onto the cab. Max realizes Vincent killed the man, and unable to escape, he is forced to help Vincent.


Although originally hoping to keep his occupation a secret, Vincent reveals that he is a hitman, and that he is in Los Angeles to murder five people before departing in the morning. Vincent forces Max to drive him to his other destinations. While Vincent assassinates his second target, Max tries to arouse the attention of passersby to free him, but because Vincent has tied Max's hands to the steering wheel to prevent escape, the people that respond steal his wallet and Vincent's briefcase. As they walk away, Vincent appears, asks for the briefcase back, and then guns the thugs down.


Vincent tells Max that he has a few minutes, and that he's a jazz fan. At a jazz bar he invites the owner, Daniel (Barry Shabaka Henley), for a drink with himself and Max. After the club closes, Vincent reveals to Daniel the purpose of his visit, but offers to spare his life if he can answer a question correctly: "where did Miles Davis learn music?" Daniel replies with an answer he believes is correct, but Vincent shoots him three times and gives a different answer to his question.


Max receives a call on the taxi dispatch to visit his hospitalized mother, Ida (Irma P. Hall). During the visit, Max steals Vincent's briefcase and hurls it onto the nearby freeway, destroying the details on Vincent's next hits. Angry, Vincent sends Max into a Mexican club owned by Felix (Javier Bardem), the man who hired Vincent, ordering Max to impersonate him and acquire a backup USB flash drive containing the information for the last two targets. Max meets Felix and acquires the flash drive.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles Police Detective Fanning (Mark Ruffalo) discovers a connection between Vincent's three victims, reporting this information to the FBI agents, led by Pedrosa (Bruce McGill), doing surveillance on Felix's nightclub, who identify the deceased as witnesses for a trial against Felix beginning the next day. The FBI assembles a SWAT team and travels to a Korean night club, where Vincent's fourth target is partying. Both the FBI and Vincent converge on the witness simultaneously, igniting a fierce gunfight that disables the SWAT team and throws the crowded club into a panic, allowing Vincent to kill the fourth witness and his bodyguards and disappear. Detective Fanning rescues Max and drags him outside only to be shot by Vincent, who beckons Max back into his cab.


Following their hasty getaway, Max, particularly incensed by Vincent gunning down Fanning, deliberately crashes and flips the cab in the middle of the street. Vincent emerges from the car, abandons Max, and runs. An arriving police officer discovers the first victim in Max's trunk and prepares to arrest Max, who complies until he notices the face of the fifth intended victim is Annie, his earlier cab fare.
Max overpowers the policeman and runs towards Annie's office building. He reaches Annie on a stolen cell phone and warns her about Vincent's approach. Max enters the building and stops the assassination attempt by shooting at Vincent, grazing his face; he then flees with Annie to the Metrorail station under the building. A brief exchange of gunfire ensues on the train, in which Vincent is fatally wounded. Max and Annie get off the train at the next station while the train continues toward Long Beach with dawn breaking, and with a now dead Vincent sitting slumped in his seat.
