Quick Film Guide: Collateral Damage (Andrew Davis, 2002)

Collateral Damage
Directed by Andrew Davis

After seeing is wife and son die in a terrorist attack, and out of frustration for the political red tape surrounding the investigations, a firefighter decides to take matters into his own hands and seek revenge.

Collateral Damage was filmed before the tragic events of 9/11, which inevitably affected its release and editing process. If it hadn’t been for that, it most likely would have looked like an aged action movie and one of many starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The film has all but been forgotten now, but it was interestingly the Austrian-born actor’s second-last role before he became the Governor of California.
