After the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001, Warner Bros. pulled all advertising of the film which had included a mock newspaper clipping alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger's face featuring the word "bombing" and the tagline "What would you do if you lost everything?" and its Collateral Damage (2002) movie website that had included a game called "Hunting for the Wolf". When the film was finally released in 2002, the film's poster was revamped with shot of an explosion due to the U.S. subsequent invasion of Afghanistan in the background of Arnold's face in the foreground and the film's original tagline missing. The website was completely revamped with nothing but production stills, bios, the film's synopsis, and cast and crew material. The games and other material that had been on the original version of the website were completely eliminated. See more »

Mildly entertaining and predictable, but not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. The casting of the woman with the weird lips and her husband seemed as believable as that of the gigantic muscle-laden German guy playing a firefighter, but what the hey, it's Hollywood and ya just gotta love it. I'm not anticipating any great Arnold 'til T3, the role he was born to do. Still, this was some hell-raising, explosion-riddled, sock-'em-in-the-gut mindless fun.
