It was our last day, & we had packed up & were waiting for the time to be ready so we could check our lugage in early to avoid the rush. We had some time to kill, & I suggested we go to a movie.

My dad picked Colateral, & I didn't have a clue what it was about. About 10 minutes in I was thinking wow! What a cool movie. I enjoyed it all, but I could see the writing on the wall, well ahead of the movie, which didn't spoil it for me at all. I still throughly enjoyed it. I didn't spend my time picking it apart, I was just very entertained while I watched it.

I thougth it was a winner, & I would give it a 9 to 9.5 overall. But what do I know, I'm not a critic, I just know I liked it a lot.

Excellent film. Michael Mann is a briliant filmmaker.

Realism in all scenes involving a firearm... that's what made the movie a 9.5 for me.

When I was in Anchorage, I saw House Of 1000 Coprses with Rob Zombie. Same thing as you, waiting to leave after 10 day cruise. I love Alaska. As much as Europe.....

Except the one where he kills who knows how many cops in the night club, and then just drives away.

He only killed one cop, the undercover guy. The rest of them were security guards and if I remember right, he only killed 3. The first cop was shot by the security guy that was being wrestled by another cop, this took most of the others out of action because they were dragging the shot cop out and taking care of him.

That alley scene was very well done, it was very simple but many don't understand the skill that was envolved in that.

That was the pistol that the Tom Cruise's character was using? I thought it was USPish but could never get a good clean look at it.

Late in the movie I saw he did have a USP, but I think he might have used more than 1 type. He used a .22 on the jazz mzn I thought???
