Tom Cruise stars as a contract killer in a gray hairpiece. He commandeers a taxi and its driver (Jamie Foxx) to take him on his hit spree. Michael Mann directs this action thriller. The story is compelling, the action fast and the acting very good.

The story takes place over one night in L.A. An offshore narco-trafficking cartel has discovered that some of their key people are about to be indicted in Los Angeles. They hire a professional killer Vincent (Tom Cruise) to kill the five key witnesses.

Max becomes a hostage in his own cab as Vincent makes him drive to the places where the hits will happen. Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx have great chemistry as two opposites. Will Smith's wife Jada stars as United States Attorney Annie Farrell. Mark Ruffalo plays detective Fanning, an undercover narcotics detective who is hot on Vincent's trail after his first hit. Rounding out the cast are Peter Berg as Narcotics Detective Richard Weidner and Bruce McGill as Pedrosa, a Federal Agent involved with the cartel that hired Vincent.

This exciting story comes to an action packed finale as Max discovers one of the hit targets is someone he cares about. Look out for another big Tom Cruise film.
