  1. In Collateral Damages, we are witness to heroism, all right, but it's a heroism unsullied by sentimentality.

    Casts a somewhat different light on the trauma of 9/11 and particularly on its long, devastating aftermath.
  3. 75
    These candidly shaken macho guys recall scenes still haunting their nightmares two years after 9/11.
  4. The most moving aspect of Collateral Damages is the firefighters' sense of brotherhood and duty to their jobs. It is expressed matter-of-factly, without a shred of smugness or superiority, almost with embarrassment.

    Even if you're feeling a little numbed by the spate of films dealing with 9/11, make an exception for this important documentary.
  6. 70
    Sauret's approach isn't the most artful, but it doesn't have to be. Hearing his subjects speak for themselves is good enough.
  7. 60
    The film's real flaw is its limited focus.
