Jamie Foxx plays Max, a Los Angeles cab driver who has a pretty wild night in this thriller from Michael Mann (HEAT, THE INSIDER). First, Max picks up, flirts with, and gets the number of Annie (Jada Pinkett Smith), an attractive District attorney. Next, Vincent (Tom Cruise) climbs into his cab. He is a professional hit man who reserves Max for the night with a whole shopping list of victims he needs to visit. As the night moves forward and the body count rises, Max must wrestle with the question of how to do the right thing while staying alive. Gradually the two men bond in unlikely ways, as each learns survival mechanisms from the other, and it all doubles as a metaphor for morality vs. capitalism. Mark Ruffalo and Peter Berg play cops who eventually get on Max and Vincent's trail, leading to a spectacular action set piece inside a night club. Irma P. Hall (2004's THE LADYKILLERS) gets laughs as Max's hospitalized momma, and Javier Bardem (BEFORE NIGHT FALLS) is a sinister drug lord. With a capable director like Mann at the wheel, this remains a smooth, enjoyable ride while also being fast, bumpy, and full of twists and turns. The streets of urban, nighttime Los Angeles--captured via a specially modified digital camera--never looked so beautiful or desolate. As typical of the director, the film is both artistic and action-packed; operatically over-the-top while never skimping on the little details.

Hardly what id call a "hot" deal, you wouldnt exactly expect to pay more for an ancient dvd like this and its the same price as it was when you previously posted this over a year ago, hence another reason its not hot imo

cracking film and some great tunes in it too

Good movie, very entertaining even if you don't normally like Tom Cruise.

I'm sorry to Tom Cruise fans, but to me, he is always just Tom Cruise in every film I've seen him in!

A fine film.

didn't really like this film. far too predictable.

But he's a slightly different Tom Cruise in this one

All actors are the same in all movies no matter what bolloxs they write about them becoming submerged into the roles etc., some of the quotes make me laugh :whistling:

The only actor that ever really changed for me was Tom Hanks who went from being nauseous to excellent :w00t:

I enjoyed this movie actually though :thumbsup:

Great film :thumbsup:
