Collateral is an action-thriller that I enjoyed from the beginning till the end. The cast is excellent, with Tom Cruise playing Vincent, the cold-blooded hitman who wants to do his job. Jamie Foxx plays Max, the reluctant cab driver who has big dreams. Their lives change when they meet. They must survive a cat and mouse game while police officers and a dangerous drug cartel track them. Vincent makes the killings, and Max must drive Vincent around L.A. while he holds him hostage. The plot of this movie was great. It allows viewers to understand and analyze Vincent and Max’s characters. Collateral is my favorite action movie.

After negotiating a daring escape of an Estonian mental institution, Esther travels to America in the disguise of the missing daughter of wealthy parents. But, an unexpected twist unfolds, pitting Esther against the mother of her choice who is determined to defend her family from the criminal “child” at any cost. Rarely do we see good prequels, especially when the film that it is based on is known for its thrilling twist. Esther has always given me chills and the fantastic acting by the actress adds the chills. The prequel provides a fascinating insight at the story of Esther(Leena) who ended to be in America. The film has horrific deaths, and a not too shocking twists will not be revealed until later. Overall, the film is a decent watch.
