With the attacks on Sept 11 , movies have tried to cash in but Collateral Damage is different. Arnold even dedicated the movie to firefighters everywhere in an interview with Byron Allen.
The movie is brilliant in showing what only what the motivation behind terrorist attacks , but the depiction of slow agencies like fbi to counter these terrorist attacks.
Basically, the FBI and CIA tell Gorden Brewer(Arnold
Schwarzennger) that they are working to bring down the
terrorist who killed his family, when in fact they have no good leads on the suspect.
Rather, than sitting on his butt, and waiting for the FBI to do something, Gordon takes the law into his own hands and seeks to get justice for his family by going into Columbia and getting "The Wolf" as the terrorist is called.
There is a great scene in which Gordon goes crazy
and literally beats the hell out of a cold-blooded radio news reporter who says that the victims are pure garbage by saying their "collateral damage". The radio reporter explains the reasons behind terrorist attacks but shows no feeling for victims. I loved this scene, because this reporter clearly has no remorse for the dead. He probably has no family of his nose, and doesn't know the meaning of life, except to cover his own.
Now you might say to yourself what's the difference between
Arnold's character (who is going for justice) and the terrorist well here is the big difference from Arnold himself:
"The difference between me and you is that
I am only going to kill you".Read more ›
"Collateral Damage" was originally supposed to be released in September or October of 2001. In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a movie about terrorism on US soil would be seen as insensitive and inappropriate, but it would also have been a bad business decision. It seemed that this movie was marred by the taint of association. It was also marred by the fact that it was a fairly ordinary movie.
Gordy Brewer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a New York City firefighter. His wife and son are killed in a terrorist attack and Brewer just happened to get a look at the man believed to be the terrorist. The terrorist who pulled off the attack is a Columbian known only as The Wolf (Cliff Curtis). The Wolf's agenda has to do with getting the Americans (and their interests) out of his country. Unfortunately, other than agent Peter Brandt (Elias Koteas), the intended target of the attack, nobody in the government is willing to pursue the Wolf in his own country. In fact, Brandt is being pulled off the case and reassigned. Brewer decides to take matters into his own hands and finds a way into Columbia and starts to track down The Wolf.
Have you seen Arnold's other action movies? Are you a fan of the genre? If so, you know exactly how this movie will play out. If you like these kind of movies, you'll like this one. "Collateral Damage" has its moments, and when Arnold actually gets to Columbia, the movie is at its most interesting (despite being at its most implausible). This is simply an average movie. It's not particularly awful, but neither is it very good.
The plot involves fireman Brewer meeting his wife and son at a plaza.He is just yards away when an explosion goes off killing his family.Inconsolable he retreats into his home after he is released from hospital having overcome injuries he himself sustained during the bombing.He vows revenge and starts probing into the bombing and supplies government officials with info which they ignore.Frustrated but armed with much information and a bit of under the table help,he flies to Columbia to kill the Columbian drug lord responsible for the death of his family.It is a long journey fraught with difficulties but he eventually makes it.One night he plants a bomb,but just before it is to go off a woman and a young boy happen on the scene and he saves them.He is subsequently captured and held prisoner.It turns out the woman and boy he saved is the wife of the terrorist he seeks.He convinces the women to bring her child with her,with him,back to Washington to testify against her husband.
They make it back and are at FBI headquarters being questioned.When the woman excuses herself to go to the washroom and gestures for her boy to come with her he refuses.Read more ›

There are maybe 5 minutes of this movie that is ok. the rest of it is terrible.Published on March 26 2004 by MacFong
Someone decided that Arnie can't rely on his muscles alone (the man's pushing 50, for crying out loud) and made this movie. It is supposed to show off his acting skills. Read morePublished on March 22 2004 by Michael J. Tresca
As a previous fan of Arnold as a foreign man tetermined to make it big in the US, i must say i am disappointed that he even made this film. Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2004 by pablo rojas
This is a watchable movie, but nothing special. The cover is deceiving -- it makes it look like yet-another Vietnam movie. Read morePublished on Feb. 5 2004 by Randy Given
I sat down to watch the movie only after ensuring that the character played by Arnie, was more human than his usual roles i.e. no robotics involved, no sci-fic. Read morePublished on Dec 19 2003 by Jamie Fern
