August 30, 2018
Way too sentimental with a mean-spirited premise and a ridiculous conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 22, 2018
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.

... I don't know if the movie is worth saying "hey yeah total I gotta go out and watch this one"...
August 23, 2018
Contrived, annoying silly, and featuring some ripe acting from Smith, this is a Christmas movie turkey with all the starry trimmings.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

...it is one of the worst movies that I've seen this year...
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
September 20, 2017
The film's concept of coping with death is applaudable, but the execution is at the other extreme. It is such a waste of talent.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Collateral Beauty is just bad in the bad way.
August 24, 2017
The Hollywood tearjerker is an art form of pure privilege.
March 30, 2018
A domino construction that collapses between irrelevant subplots and underused actors. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 11, 2018
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]
January 10, 2017
Collateral Beauty had the potential to be great, yet even with a stellar cast and a seemingly heartwarming idea, the film failed to deliver what it promised its viewers.
December 14, 2016
With the domino pieces in place, the plot then coasts along rather predictably.
Full Review | Original Score: D
December 22, 2016
There is a gorgeous, existential tearjerker buried somewhere in this ill-conceived holiday offering, but even the combined talents of several well-regarded Hollywood actors couldn't wrench it free.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 3, 2017
A disappointing movie, overall, that lacks any self-awareness, Collateral Beauty has no real heart in its shallow depths.
December 16, 2016
It's likely that the makers of Collateral Beauty were sincere in their objectives, but that certainly didn't translate to a final product that nauseates and manipulates in equal measure.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
December 23, 2016
A ridiculous drama that ends up being so disastrous that it's funny. [Full review in Spanish]
December 21, 2016
Beyond the psychotic awfulness of the scenario, there is something inherently off about the film's attempt to reconcile the existential topic of grief with the more materialistic world of business affairs.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 13, 2016
Fails to make an impression, and contains not nearly enough authentic beauty to make it worthwhile.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
December 16, 2016
[Some may be] willing to overlook a hackneyed script and unbelievable characters, so long as it's all wrapped with a pretty bow in the end. Anyone with the slightest scintilla of Scrooge or rationality in them, however, might balk.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
