    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    No crime film in years boasts a cooler vibe than Michael Mann's dazzling Collateral. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Collateral is a good idea for a movie, backed up by expert execution... It's straight-up entertainment, not something to see and then talk about a month later, but definitely something to enjoy. show more

    Shake it all up and you get Collateral, a movie with only one conceivable flaw: its disinclination to break new ground, though no one held that against "The Fugitive" more than a decade of Augusts ago. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Foxx makes what he does look effortless. He's the reason to see Collateral, as he walks into the frame and walks off with the picture. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The whole movie is something of a joke, a feature-length prank that mixes stark violence and shock humor in the mold of Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction." Though it is a far less ambitious entertainment than Tarantino's masterpiece, it has its moments. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The movie never really gets below that surface. It sticks to the mean streets of Los Angeles without much introspection or analysis. But those surfaces are slick and beguiling. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    This is a rare thriller that's as much character study as sound and fury. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    Really two movies: a taut, terrific, realistic crime drama, and, by the end, an over-the top, high-tech extravaganza which tries to out-Woo John Woo and turn Cruise into another Terminator. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Stylishly made, if less intellectually resonant than first-rate Mann films like "Ali" and "The Insider." show more
