Collateral Damage

NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN A MAN WITH NOTHING TO LOSE.

When fire fighter Gordy Brewer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) loses his family in a bombing staged by a guerrilla group, he goes to Colombia to find the guilty. Here’s a script that might as well fit in a 1980s direct-to-video movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme; there’s also a few similarities to the Rambo series. Not that the filmmakers are embarrassed by that; along with Arnold, they party like it’s 1985. The final showdown is better than the rest of the movie, but why pick a real country (Colombia) when the story could be interpreted as a realistic portrayal?

2002-U.S. 109 min. Color. Directed byĀ Andrew Davies. Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger (Gordy Brewer), Elias Koteas (Peter Brandt), Francesca Neri (Selena Perrini), Cliff Curtis, Miguel Sandoval, Harry Lennix… John Leguizamo, John Turturro.

Trivia: The making and marketing of the film ran into several problems due to the similarities with 9/11, which coincided with the original release date of the movie. It was subsequently postponed and reworked.
