    A movie that was better than I expected. The tedious beginning eventually leads to a pretty suspensful ending. Definately farfetched but fun to watch. There is pretty of action, but what would you expect from Arnold.

    Picking on Schwarzenegger's limitations as an actor is asinine and beside the point since his job is merely to serve as emcee for the explosions. But because of the context "Collateral Damage" finds itself in, I must. Schwarzenegger, a former bodybuilder, is our first cinematic representation of those left behind following a terrorist attack.

    Simply written "Arnold-against-all-the-bad-guys-to-save-the-US" story. Despite the bad context of this moive, it still can be enjoyable.

    You can tell that Schwarzenegger was losing a step filming this movie, that or the editors need to find a new profession, because some of the fighting scenes were so off they were laughable. If you can overlook that you have an enjoyable action movie that isn't anything special but good enough for a movie for guys. Leguizamo adds some flair to the movie with his quick tongued delivery as aYou can tell that Schwarzenegger was losing a step filming this movie, that or the editors need to find a new profession, because some of the fighting scenes were so off they were laughable.

  1. There's nothing special about this movie -- it's just business as usual for today's debased action-movie genre.

    In a way, Collateral Damage is redeemed by its implausibility, because the closer it comes to reality, the more disturbing it gets. For once, viewers have reason to be grateful for having their intelligence insulted.
