How suspense was created in the film Collateral

Scene 1

THE BAG SWAP

video


This scene creates suspense because two men (Tom Cruise and Jason Statham) are walking through a crowded area in an airport. We can hear footsteps.

The camera is a close up on both of the men, switching between each person while walking, there is also a slow pace of editing when it switches between each character. We then see a two shot of them when they collide, dropping there bags.
When there bags are swapped we start to here upbeat music, fast paced.


Scene 2


THE SCENE WHERE THEY ARE TALKING TO THE TAXI COMMUNICATION PERSON (THE BOSS OF MAX). 






This scene creates tension because if Max doesn't tell his boss that he's fine and nothing is happening then Vincent is going to kill him. 



Scene 3

THE SCENE AT THE END WHEN VINCENT IS TRYING TO KILL THE GIRL IN THE BUILDING.



In this scene the woman is hiding from vincent in the building, suspense is created in this scene because all the lights are switched off the building is pitch black. They cannot see each other very well.
