Director Michael Mann Writer/s Stuart Beattie

Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A hitman, with a list of victims, forces a cab driver to take him from place to place as he extinguishes his targets, but the police are in the trail, and when the cabbie finds out that the final victim is to be a young attourney with whom he has struck up a friendship drastic measures are necessary.
Content Some violence and lots of tension as the hitman’s plans go downhill, and he is forced to improvise.
A View Tom Cruise is cast against type, but is still admirably effective this time as an action anti-hero. Well worth a couple of hours of your time.
