Straining every muscle not to offend, Collateral Damage counts basic coherence among its own casualties. But it's crystal clear on one point: Taking mercy on the "enemy," women and children included, is for wimps.

Schwarzenegger's Brewer remarks, 'If I don't do it, it seems no one else will,' but that's a lousy excuse for...a multi-million dollar mistake like this one. [Blu-ray]

I was thrown for a loop at how good this movie was and guys will love it.

...the studio didn't make it for any particular political purpose; it's basically just a stock, action-revenge flick, typical of Big Arnold.

A competent Schwarzenegger action movie that will appeal to the nostalgic.

The plot is laughably bad, and the action not much better.

The film's less knee-jerk than it could have been.

Judged purely as a piece of escapist popcorn fun, Collateral Damage only barely passes muster.

... Time may be running out for Arnold the action hero.

Apparently, it's relatively easy for a 6-foot tall, musclebound, non Spanish-speaking white guy to penetrate the depths of the Colombian guerilla-controlled jungle

The whole South American adventure looks so forced you half expect Schwarzenegger to break into a travel programme piece to camera.

Rule of thumb: if Arnold Schwarzenegger is the smartest person in a movie, you've got problems.

All in all, "Collateral Damage" is entertaining in all the ways a Schwarzenegger film is expected to: bad guys do him dirty, Arnold's character vows revenge, lots of things blow up, and the bad guys get theirs... a more intense actor would have carried it

It will be remembered less for its generic content than for the real-life events that give it an eerie resonance.

This simplistic good and evil concept has long been a staple of Hollywood. What is more worrying is that it now appears to constitute American foreign policy.

Loud, noisy, piece of garbage.

In a world where the cost of real violence and the sacrifices of real heroes are inescapable reality, there is no connection to be made with the empty, ersatz heroics of a movie like this.
