This action thriller follows LA cabbie Max Durocher, the type of person who can wax poetic about other people’s lives, which impresses U.S. Justice Department prosecutor Annie Farrell, one of his fares, so much that she gives him her telephone number at the end of her ride. Although a dedicated man as seen through the efficiency in which he does his work, he can’t or won’t translate that eloquence into a better life for himself.
Did You Know?
1. Tom Cruise really fell when he stepped on the office chair. Michael Mann liked the anomaly so much that he left it in the film.
2. Although he never uses his gun in the film, Mark Ruffalo nevertheless underwent rigorous weapons training so he would look believable wielding a gun.
