EC:EC FCA - Collateral

Went to see Tom Cruise’s “Collateral” the other day. A good film, but not great. It had it’s moments, but it loses itself due to several annoying improbabilities in the plot. There’s a scene in the Fever Night Club that just lasts way too long for the end result to believably occur. Some scenes were a bit too convenient, and the director & writer also dropped the ball in not really allowing the two main characters to further explore themselves. One thing filmmakers do get correct - almost no one rides the subway in L.A. (HAH!) For the popcorn excitement, I give it 3 wine bottles out of 5. ($6.00 for a matinee... YIKES!)
