Many will disagree, but I think this is one of Arnie's better films to come along in a long while!
Okay, so he's an 80's action throwback is he? How many people in Hollywood are doing what Arnie does now? He's got loyal fans the world over, and I happen to be one of them and I'm proud to be one!!!
HE dominated the 80's and early 90's, then he began to lose the plot - basically 'cause the films he made didn't have one!!
So now, in the wake of Sep 11th, Collateral Damage is finally released due to the nature and content of the plot.
It starts off brilliantly, establishing Arnie as a 'normal' human being. Then he loses his wife and son in a devastating explosion! I was truly moved! Then of course, he wants justice, and the only way for him to get it, is assuming the role of avenger.
It has all the trademark Arnie dialogue, which I must admit, does mae me cringe sometimes, but hey, that's all part of the package!
The twist, which I worked out (hehehehehe!!) is a nice one. Of course, you know how the film's gonna end even before you've bought the ticket, but that's the fun of an Arnie movie, he never really loses, and we just go there for the corny dialogue and great stunts!!!! so on this biased basis, I'm giving this film an 8/10! Go on, take the mickey, but I can't get enough of the guy.....bugger it I think I'll marry him!!! hehehehehehehe!!!!!!!!!!!
