Collateral is an intense, absorbing, thrilling cinematic experience. Superb lead performances by Foxx and Cruise, strong supporting performances by Ruffalo, Pinkett-Smith, Berg, Javier Bardem, and others. A few of the minor players here would make their way into Mann’s excellent but short-lived CBS drama, Robbery Homicide Division, a show that employed this film’s aesthetic. That aesthetic is an intrinsic part of Collateral, bringing a cinematic reality to the tension of the story. It is served well by the UHD treatment, and while this won’t become a reference disc for your home theater, it’s a treat.

Special Delivery (1:09): Interesting (and extremely brief) special feature following Tom Cruise disguised as a Fed-Ex delivery guy in an experiment to have the hugely recognizable face of Cruise blend into the crowd as his Vincent character is designed to do.
This was the most disappointing feature to me from the original DVD release, based more on how much the studio hyped this feature (they made it out as if cameras followed Cruise for the entire day, capturing reactions from those receiving packages), then only to find just how brief it is.
