- Details: US/ 115 mins/ (15PG.
Mainly shot on high definition digital video and directed with characteristic style and grace by Michael Mann, Collateral is an assured, precise piece of work that rarely falters. Mann's eye for detail is as sharp as ever, the perpetual contrast between light and darkness a thing of sublime beauty here - but it's in the characters which screenwriter Stuart Beattie finds a subtlety and range. There's plenty of early Oscar buzz about Tom Cruise's work here and it's certainly not without justification - Vincent's underlying rage is just barely masked by an exaggerated sense of decorum and an appreciation of culture. However, Jamie Foxx does his level best to nick to the movie from right under Cruise's nose.
