Storyline

Firefighter Gordon Brewer is plunged into the complex and dangerous world of international terrorism after he loses his wife and child in a bombing credited to Claudio "The Wolf" Perrini. Frustrated with the official investigation and haunted by the thought that the man responsible for murdering his family might never be brought to justice, Brewer takes matters into his own hands and tracks his quarry ultimately to Colombia.

Hollywood Once Again Serves Up a Distorted and Grotesque Image of Colombia!
28 July 2016 | by (Pasto, Colombia) – See all my reviews

......................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA and ORLANDO, FL

The Goveranator, "On the Loose, with Dr. Seuss!" As a Dual National, living in Colombia, people frequently come up to me and say: "I never go to those Hollywood movies, always projecting such a lousy image of Colombia!" Hard to refute that, eh! And how about this? Is it worth seeing AH-NULD one more time? Must answer much more "NO" than "YES"! Despite having seen a constant decline in the quality of his final films over the years they're still a cut above a lot of the action movies produced in Hollywood today.

If the ACTION genre is your thing: Maybe The answer is "YES". For everyone else, probably the words "I PASS" are the most apropos. "DAMAGE", filmed BEFORE 9/11, with its Colombian terrorists detonating bombs on U.S. soil, passes from the category of Fiction to that of Fairy Tale! The bad guy here is a narco-guerrilla/terrorist named Claudio Perini, willing to sacrifice it ALL for the "Cause". The most chilling aspect of this film, is a mother so perverse and diabolic, she sacrifices her only son, with the dispassionate air of someone taking out the trash!

Hollywood again serves up a distorted and grotesque image of Colombia. Seems like the ones experiencing the most "Collateral Damage" here are the viewers of the film itself!

5*.....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA??????

Any comments, questions or observations, in English o en Español, are most welcome!
