Editor's note

In "Collateral," directed by Michael Mann, Tom Cruise delivers a chilling performance as a silver-haired hitman who hijacks a taxi and its driver for a night of hits across Los Angeles. The film is a tense, atmospheric thriller that explores the darkness of the human soul, set against the neon-lit backdrop of the city. Jamie Foxx shines as the cab driver caught in the crossfire, delivering a performance that is both vulnerable and courageous. -- Mann's direction is impeccable, creating a suspenseful cat-and-mouse game that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The film's exploration of morality, fate, and the randomness of life is both thought-provoking and thrilling, making it a standout in the assassin genre.
