Movie Review: Collateral

Speaking of Seth, last Sunday night was our first night hanging out together at home...

We decided to watch a movie, and Seth picked out Collateral from the free offerings on Comcast OnDemand.

I had never heard of it, but it ended up being a mildly enjoyable ride. The movie is a fairly predictable and brainless action movie that pretends to be a lot deeper and darker than it actually is. Tom Cruise plays an assassin who hires/hijaks a cab driven by Jamie Foxx to take him around on an all-night killing spree in LA.

The movie relies way too heavily on "what-are-the-odds-of-that" miracle coincidences. I hate that, and the movie would have been better without them.

But overall, the movie was fun - and the dark LA-by-night styling was actually pretty cool.

Rating: 3 stars.
