    let me save you $5..
    if any of you are thinking about renting this, don't. basically it licks the sweatiest nuts.
    cruise is totally unbelievable and unconvincing as a bad ass. and jamie foxx isn't much better. and the soundtrack is completely wack with a hasty and weak storyline.
    the funny thing is, as i was watching it i was thinking, wow, whoever directed
    this garbage is doing a terrible bite of michael mann. the whole mix of a crazy story in
    a huge nameless city with a ton of music interludes setting a mood. well it turns
    out mann directed this too. did anybody find anything good about this?

    Yo! This movie is hyyyyype! I'm telling you, drink a 12 pack with your boy, smoke a gigantor, and you'll be singing a different tune. It's the perfect movie to be talking while you're watching. It's one of those good 'bad' movies, in my opinion.

    I enjoyed the movie. It would have been rad if it ended a little differently.

    cruise tripping over the chair and the scene where he kills those 2 'thugs' are pretty much the only good things about the movie.

    Besides being terribly predictable, I found it entertaining and well made. I definitely don't think it deserves all the praise it's gotten though.

    i thought it was pretty tight. cruise was pretty trippy and crazy, you know you woulda been scared.

    and the whole point to the movie i thought was dope:

    "stop putting your dreams on hold and make them happen starting today"...

    the tripping on the chair incident was something i watched with my roommate over and over, but the movie started to suck when jamie foxx picked up jada pinkett and she reveals that she is a prosecutor. ok, a prosecutor in LA that has to get around by taxi? anyone who is familiar with LA knows that no here takes taxis except for drunks. yeah right, and her dropping her number to him a fucking cabby? c'mon....
