Buy it... only if somebody stole your sleeping pills and you're frantically looking for an absolutely dull, boring, and brooding atmospheric score to do the same job.

Avoid it... if you, like most film score collectors, can't fathom how this Arnold Schwarzenegger action thriller received such a lifeless musical identity from an otherwise capable composer.

Revell
Collateral Damage: (Graeme Revell) Due for a theatrical and soundtrack album release in October of 2001, this Arnold Schwarzenegger action thriller was delayed until February of 2002 because of the terrorist attacks on the United States in the month prior to its debut. With sensitivities not ignored, Warner Brothers' delay of Collateral Damage was intended to allow it enough time to satisfy psychologically healed audiences with scenes of America's favorite action hero single-handedly seeking and destroying an evil terrorist who conducts a bombing on American soil. The aging Schwarzenegger, whose character witnesses the death of his wife and son in this bombing, goes on a journey of revenge and encounters all the usual Hollywood cliches and bad surprises along the road to justified ass-kicking. Despite showing the population what they wanted to see (even though the bad guy here is Columbian and not Muslim), the film's popularity waned considerably after its initial burst onto the screen. Critically, it was mediocre at best, most audiences enjoying the timeliness of the anti-terrorism scenario while it lasted and paying no attention to it thereafter. The score was, during the summer of 2001, expected to be one of the autumn season's most exciting, with veteran action film composer Graeme Revell offering his services to yet another big budget film and recording with a very large assembly of Los Angeles orchestral musicians. Not all had been successful for Revell that year, however, because his two most noteworthy scores of 2001 failed to achieve a minimum combination of critical and popular success. After a tepid response to his seemingly understated music for the television remake of Dune and a disastrously received last-minute work for Tomb Raider, expectations of film score collectors for Collateral Damage were cautious, though hopeful. After all, Revell had, at times past, taken unique approaches to the scoring of his action films, with The Saint and Red Planet as fine examples of his creativity. For Collateral Damage, however, Revell continued his disappointing year of producing substandard, bland music for films that badly needed a greater aural identity.
