In one fleeting moment, LA firefighter Gordon Brewer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) loses everything that he had ever cared about.
Running late to meet his wife and young son at a downtown high-rise, he witnesses a catastrophic bomb blast that kills his family before his eyes. The explosion is credited to Claudio 'The Wolf' Perrini (Cliff Curtis), an infamous rebel leader in Colombia's decades-long civil war. The intended targets were members of the Colombian consulate and American intelligence agents. Gordon's wife and child are considered 'collateral damage', innocent people who lost their lives for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gordon's only consolation is the hope that justice will prevail for the loss of his family.
When the official US investigation into the Wolf's whereabouts fails, Gordon realises that bringing the terrorist to justice is no longer a priority to anyone but himself. Against the advice of friends and pointed warnings from the CIA and the FBI, Gordon heads to war-torn Colombia to track him down alone. He puts his life on the line to bring the Wolf to justice but at this point he has nothing left to lose. Gordon's relentless pursuit leads him from the jungles of Colombia back to the streets of Washington where the bomber is preparing to strike again.
From the director of THE FUGITIVE (Andrew Davis), Warner Bros Pictures presents in association with Bel-Air Entertainment, COLLATERAL DAMAGE, produced by Steven Reuther and David Foster from a story by Ronald Roose, David Griffiths and Peter Griffiths, screenplay by David Griffiths and Peter Griffiths.
