Collateral Beauty plays like a parody of Oscar bait, with overwrought one-note performances wrapped around an earnest, yet stupid central narrative.

Collateral Beauty is the worst kind of pandering pap. It is garbage psycho-babble masquerading as pop-philosophy, set in a Pottery Barn.

Will Smith delivers a great performance along with Jacob Latimore and Helen Mirren. My only issue with this film is there were too many A-list actors and it seemed everyone was fighting for attention.

The "Christmas spirit" in this one is a little damp and flat.
November 3, 2018
It's an overbearing, wannabe tear-jerker that wastes its cast with a story so nasty and mean-spirited it's a mystery how it was green lighted in the first place.

From start to finish, Collateral Beauty is a jaw-dropping piece of cinema, one that is astoundingly inept in every facet of its being.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 28, 2018
Despite a cast that includes six former Oscar nominees (and two winners), Collateral Beauty is essentially a rich person's Hallmark Hall of Fame movie.

August 30, 2018
Way too sentimental with a mean-spirited premise and a ridiculous conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 23, 2018
Contrived, annoying silly, and featuring some ripe acting from Smith, this is a Christmas movie turkey with all the starry trimmings.

Collateral Beauty seemingly aspires to be blatant grief voyeurism, the kind to which, if a film is lucky, finds a cult following from teenagers who find it beautifully deep as the rest of us do our best not to sleep, seethe, or vomit.

It is very difficult to suggest to fiercely avoid a film, but just imagine that this film is a dangerous creature. Get close at your own risk, that is if you are brave enough. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 30, 2018
A domino construction that collapses between irrelevant subplots and underused actors. [Full review in Spanish]

... I don't know if the movie is worth saying "hey yeah total I gotta go out and watch this one"...

If you're no big fan of message films . . . or contrived plots . . . or melodramas where you know the whole point of a film is to make viewers feel something, then you probably won't care too much for this 2016 drama.

Maybe this demented set-up would have worked if Collateral were a pitch-dark comedy and, I dunno, there was some tiny element of entertainment to be found depicting the harassment of a grieving parent.
November 24, 2017
This absurdly drippy fable makes about as much sense as its daft title.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 19, 2017 is one of the worst movies that I've seen this year...
November 12, 2017
Will Smith comes close to saving this one.

November 6, 2017
The play on the term 'collateral damage' fails to hit home as the movie takes a long-winded route to get there.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 17, 2017
It's intelligent, reflective, thought-provoking and very nicely acted by a star-studded ensemble cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
