It wasn’t the best movie to come from director Guy Ritchie, but it was a film markedly different than his regularly fair. At the very least, this movie should be seen for the repartee between Sherlock Holmes (played by the ever excellent Robert Downey Jr.) and Dr. John Watson. Both Downey and Jude Law play their parts, as one might expect, brilliantly.
Chances are, you didn’t see “An Education”. It didn’t do amazingly well in theaters, and it’s not the most mainstream of films. It netted three Oscar nominations, including one for screenwriter and author of the original book, Nick Hornby. Not all have Hornby’s books have made for great movies, but one of my all time favorites – “High Fidelity” – was penned by Hornby.
Director Michael Mann has taken a dive in the last few years, there’s no denying it. “Colatteral” is the last truly good movie from the man that brought you “Heat”, “Thief”, and “The Last of the Mohicans”. As High Def Digest’s David Krauss puts it, ”[Collateral] deftly blends taut action with an engrossing story, and possesses more depth than most movies in its class.
