In one fleeting moment, L.A. firefighter Gordy Brewer loses everything he ever cared about. Running late to meet his wife and young son at a downtown high-rise, the devoted family man arrives in time to witness a bomb explode, showering the area with debris and shattered glass. The explosion is credited to 'El Lobo, The Wolf', an infamous rebel leader in Colombia's decades-long civil war. The intended targets were members of the Colombian consulate and American intelligence agents; its casualties included one civilian woman and one small boy--Gordy's family, innocent people who lost their lives for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gordy's only consolation for the loss of his family is the hope that the Wolf will be stopped before he has a chance to strike again. When the official U.S. investigation into the Wolf stalls, Gordy realizes that bringing the terrorist to justice is no longer a priority to anyone but himself. Gordy heads to war-torn Colombia to track him down alone.

With a few cringeworthy moments aside, most of Schwarzeneggers work up to Collateral Damage, had been decent stuff in the action genre. Some of it fantastic. Collateral Damage bears no resemblance to any Arnie movie I've ever seen. And it's in a bad way, a very bad way.

If Arnie doesn't shine, then usually the story does, or there are a bunch of bad guys played by good actors that gel it all together- here we have none of that.

Collateral Damage is just a flat film, end of. Sure the climax tries to beef itself out of trouble- but that's no excuse for the other 100 mins before it.

I've never felt so bored when watching an Arnie film. Theres not even that much action, and Arnie looks very tired in this film. Not just him though, so does everyone else.

I cannot see why anyone can defend such a film and give it good marks. And this is coming from a big Arnie fan. As an example look at how Arnie's character deals with the death of his wife and son? He doesn't deal with it at all. We are given no human time with Arnie to grieve. Missed opportunity.

When you watch this you have a strong desire to turn it off and stick on Total Recall, True Lies- even Eraser is much better than this.

The only positive is you think it can't get any worse for Arnie- It kind of did agreeing to do the pathetic Terminator 3 after this one- and then he switched careers. Made a good choice me thinks.

I have mostly enjoyed Arnold's movies, with some exceptions (such as Commando, Twins and the most terrible one where he - oh horror! - gives birth to a child).
To me at least it seems that Collateral Damage is both related with and an opposite of Commando; related because both movies have a revenge plot. Opposite because whilst the latter was characterised by amazingly bad acting and a predictable ending, the former both displays a convincing performance by Arnold and delivers a most surprising - if not shocking - finish.
The plot: I will not reveal too much here in case the reader is yet to watch this move, but the story begins with Arnold losing his family in a bomb blast set off by a terrorist. We witness Arnold's agony, the search for revenge, the captivity in a South American jungle, the friendship with the terrorist's family - and - the incredibly shocking ending.
I know that another review here says that the terrorist is portrayed in a way too sympathetic light, which makes it impossible to despise him as much as we despised the bad guy in Commando. I disagree. And very much so: One quality of Collateral Damage is that we get the impression that there is a human side to the terrorist; we start to understand/think that even his family opposes his evil plans and what he has become; we start assuming that a relationship is developing between Arnold and the terrorist's wife.
In other words, one gets an impression that the plot is taking a particular direction and that the ending will become logical and predictable. But not so! The movie takes us to the conclusion that you can trust no-one, and that nothing should be taken for what it is. And indeed, that fanaticism can override even natural human relations. In my opinion, that is no bad plot at all.

Firefighter & family man Gordon Brewer is plunged into the complex world of international terrorism when his wife & child are killed in a terrorist bombing credited to the terrorist named The Wolf.

Brewer frustrated by how the official investigation is going & haunted that the terrorist responsible for killing his family may never be brought to justice Brewer takes the law into his own hands & heads to Columbia to track down The Wolf & end his reign of terrorism.

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a excellent action thriller with a great performance by Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a more realistic character here in family man Gordon Brewer that doesn't wisecrack or say "I'll be back every five minutes as Arnie goes for a more heartfelt emotional gritty performance that actually adds a layer of realism to his character.

Collateral Damage was released in 2002 and stars Arnold Schwarzenneger. For a start, the plot of this film is very good to brilliant, in my opinion, and is certainly very believable! Arnie plays Gordy, a Los Angeles fireman who witnesses the murder of his wife and young son in a bomb attack by a Colombian terrorist. Following his loss, Gordy obsessively attempts to track down the bomber and his efforts take him from Los Angeles to the heart of the Colombian jungle, even Washington, DC! Overall, the plot is a suspenseful thriller with more than a few shockers to keep you on the edge of your seat. In the heel of the hunt, one must ask, how far would you go in your search for justice?

Now, onto the Blu Ray quality.

Picture: The picture quality gets a solid 9 from me here. While it does take a while to show itself, and you will see what I mean when you first watch the film on Blu Ray, it is one of the better Blu Rays out there in my book. It really surpassed my expectations. The brightness, sharpness, contrast and textures are all on top form and, in some cases, visually exemplary! This is definitely a Blu Ray I would recommend if you like your picture quality to be top brass!

Sound: I would give the sound an 8, overall. There's no real problems with it, except that the dialogue gets lost amid the action at times, so to speak. Overall, it isn't a big problem and it's known to happen with Blu Rays.

Overall, Collateral Damage is a very good film and it is matched by a very good Blu Ray here, in my opinion. It really surpassed my expectations on Blu Ray as I really wasn't expecting much, given the film's age now (2002). A solid Blu Ray transfer guaranteed here, highly recommended!
