Critic Consensus: Collide wastes a talented cast on a would-be thriller fatally undermined by eye-rolling dialogue, logical fallacies, and humdrum set pieces.

Critic Reviews for Collide
Hoult and Jones are unable to breathe much life into their bland characters, and it's ultimately sad to watch the former Hannibal Lecter and Gandhi reduced to playing silly, tough-guy caricatures.
Unexceptional, a hodgepodge of corny voice-over and repetitive, anticlimactic plotting, with Hoult and Jones miscast as a couple of party-hardy American expats.
The kind of low-rent action movie that only exists because everybody involved knew that nobody in the Western world would ever see it.
I don't subscribe to the notion that a piece of art shows its entire hand within its first ten minutes, but director Eran Creevy's third feature doesn't inspire a whole lot of confidence with its bland introduction.
A flatly earnest Hoult and Jones are hamstrung by drippy dialogue, while Kingsley and Hopkins overplay their more colorful parts - with the former doing a cartoonish Turkish accent and the latter delivering lines with strange emphasis.
Audience Reviews for Collide
Collide is safe proof. When the fun in Collide begins, it hardly ends with a bang and leaves itself in its roots and never grows to be the flower it wanted to be. Maybe if this was taken more seriously and if they had more time to make it, this wouldn't even bother failing.
