  • Five months after Sept. 11, the movie inevitably echoes those events, but in a loud and extremely cheesy way.

  • The best that can be said about Collateral Damage is that it offers a fleeting fantasy of American invincibility at a time when we desperately crave the reality. It functions as a movie narcotic. show more

  • My guess is that the average firefighter, like the average American moviegoer, might sort of enjoy the movie, which is a skillfully made example of your typical Schwarzenegger action film. show more
