"Interesting plot, but has some huge holes"
Review by Evan

Collateral has an interesting and convincing plot on the face, but when
delved in to a bit deeper you will find out that this movie has huge plot holes.
Such as in the movie, every hit which is carried out by Vincent (Tom Cruise) has
been chronologically timed perfect for them to be complete. This is bordering
impossible because how can a hit man move from one hit to another so timely and
with such ease and be ready to execute his ordered targets every time without
fail- Just doesn't seem to gel.
When Vincent has to take out a South Korean mob boss at a club in what
appears to be Koreatown Los Angeles people are still dancing and not running
away when shots have begun to be fired- This is crazy but especially quite
unrealistic, as the crowd would instantly run after the first shot fired.
I think also too at the bridge over a L.A. Expressway in the middle of the
night the taxi driver (Jamie Foxx) throws a suitcase belonging to Vincent off
the bridge, but how- Because how did the driver get the lead on who was clearly
a professional sharpshooter and murderer and also probably ex-military- That
Vincent also makes a dumb decision with his very first hit by rather than
letting the law of physics roll the dead body off the car from the second storey
window, he decides to stash the body in the back of the taxi taking a big risk
if they get stopped by police of which they actually do but get away with the
stop because the two inspecting officers get called out to another job! Just as
I said full of huge plot holes which leaves the viewer scratching
The director of this is critically acclaimed and this movie is a bit old now
at almost ten years old. I read someone on YouTube commenting that one
particular scene from this movie, the lone wolf assassin scene, was the greatest
scene in the history of cinema. Whhhaaattt- Overstatement of the century.
"Tom Cruise's best movie!"

He is an amazing villain. The night-time setting is amazing. Soundtrack is
superb and Jamie Foxx is excellent! Seriously, nothing goes wrong in
Vincent (Tom Cruise) is a cool, calculating contract killer at the top of his game. Max (Jamie Foxx) is a cabbie with big dreams and no results. On this fateful night, Max has to transport Vincent on his next job - one night, five stops, five hits and a getaway. Thrown together, their lives in collision - neither man will ever be the same again. Tonight everything is changing…
