Collateral ★★★½

hey remember that seemingly innocuous throwaway line in the first 12 min that would’ve worked as silently ironic plant-and-payoff in the last 2 minutes? yeah well how about we have the antagonist repeat it VERBATIM in case the audience has an IQ below room temperature…especially feels out of place as mann (and his stans) prides his work on being elevated above head-smacking hollywood genre conventions. 

ready steady go shootout was fun tho.
