Starring: Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Mark Ruffalo, Jada Pinkett Smith
Hit man Vincent (Cruise) hijacks a taxi and goes around Los Angeles executing his jobs. The innocent and harmless taxi driver, Max (Foxx) has no choice but to stick with him and do as he says. Vincent has been assigned the task to kill all the witnesses to a criminal charge against his client. LAPD cop, Fanning (Ruffalo) senses the murder trail and follows the leads to get to Vincent and Max. Max encounters one of the most dramatic nights of his life, with a lot of firsts. First time seen a murder, first time used a gun and a lot more. The movie has a lot of philosophical fillers and conversations, which make the movie slightly slow. Perhaps some more action-packed sequences could have made the movie slightly less boring and more entertaining. The movie seems a little bland as if its missing out on something and it just doesn't seem to give a fulfilling experience. Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise put on a good performance but they could have been used in a far better manner. A decent movie but don't be surprised if you find your mind wandering every now and then.
Thumbs up: Cruise and Foxx
Thumbs down: Gets slow in-between
