I'm glad I didn't listen to negative reviews....

Because I really liked this movie. Its a drama...and it was slow to unfold but the message was beautiful. It makes you sad, angry, question...but in the end you learn that ALL those emotions are life and love and I thought the performances portrayed that perfectly. I think you either get that message or you don't. The acting was phenomenal including some real surprise performances. Don't go in expecting cheesy happy "Christmas miracle" endings. Don't expect a block-buster big bang edge of your seat thriller....expect a beautiful film that is taking a difficult topic(s) and turning it into a thing of beauty.

Look, it's obvious from the trailers-- this is a sad movie. But anyone who watched the trailers knows that. You know what you are going into. It is very formulaic, but the acting is good. Even the little parts are good. I would say if you watched and liked "The Fault in Our Stars" this is a good movie for you. It focuses on interpersonal relationships and the raw emotions that come with tragedy. If you are looking to cry, but definitely feel something, this is the movie for you. I feel like a lot of the negative hype may come from expecting more from the movie than was ever promised. Two of the main actors are known as taking action movie roles. This movie was never marketed as an action movie, though. It was advertised as a drama about a man who had lost his child. That is exactly what it is. Sure there are some unexpected turns, but at the end of the day, don't expect what was never advertised to be there.

A pleasant surprise reminding me of Bergman, and a borderline Smith

I was simply stupefied by the hatred negative reviews of those who feel entitled to believe that movie should be acted, written, made up in their own way. Sure, Collateral Beauty is not. It is a pleasant surprise to me, but a disillusion for sure to those leaving the movie theatre still asking themselves what that "Collateral Beauty" is all about. Too late, guys, try it again in another life, if any. For all the others with a touching sense of "being", please go, and enjoy... acting emotions photography expressions truth. (Although, yes, some personal truths in the characters' drama are less convincing than others...)

Reliable Review

I will summarize the pros and cons, and let the reader to decide. In short, I don't recommend this movie; it is a waste of time and money. Pros: -Good story line. This is what made me watch the movie in the first place. -Good acting specifically Will Smith. Will Smith is great, no doubt. The other actors are very good too. -The last moments of the movie are good. They surprise you. Cons: -It is boring; it spends a lot of time on unnecessary scenes and dialogues that are either marginal or not related to the main story. -It is not deep. Drama is supposed to enter in depth in human emotions. The main issues in the movie "death", "time" and "love" are discussed very superficially, and the related dialogues are short. Even the main issue of the movie "Collateral Beauty" is very passive. Summary: Although the movie had had all the requirements of a good movie like good acting and good story line, I will not recommend a boring superficial drama.

Emotional from start to end... worth every moment in it.

I'm going to keep this short since there are already so many other great reviews here to read... to sum it up though, this is a Very well put together film, with Many great elements, some of which are Very unexpected. I usually HATE dramas, and am more of a fun action / suspense / adventure kind of film guy... but every so often, a film such as this comes out, and its one that someone can easily break their usual style and enjoy. Forget all the comments giving it one star and hating on this film... they seem very short sighted in their perception, and are unable to see how every moment in this movie had a point and purpose, while being Very thought out. Perhaps some are mad at the film because they don't want to admit it made them cry a ton, while still ending in a way to feel warm about.

Every tragedy is accompanied with beauty...

Every tragedy is accompanied by beauty. However, as we are steeped in grief and sorrow, we tend to overlook the beauty that is caused by the tragedy. The term "collateral" is often followed by the term "damage". It is so familiar to keep an eye on the collateral damage of anything we do. We don't tend to look for beauty. This movie is so deep, and it is one of those type of movies that make you think! It illustrates the three big why's that drives us; love, death, and time. These three constructs are not absolute; they are not fixed and they don't diminish. They are so sensitive to things, events, and people surrounding us. They change forms, and accordingly change our lives. In the midst of all the tragedies you face during your life, all the bitterness, keep an eye on the collateral beauty.

Great Movie that will bring about tears.

I absolutely loved this movie. It was very touching and sometimes extremely hard to watch at times. I strongly recommend watching this movie. Pros: Acting was magnificent - especially Will Smith. He really captivates the audience with this one. The story line was well thought out and east to folly. Anyone could easily to relate to the situations/characters. It also had a wonderful surprise ending. Cons: A little on the long side I would have liked for them to have gone deeper into the 3 abstract concepts. You will enjoy this movie. I suggest you bring a tissue too. :-)

Pretty good movie if...

you're not one of those that expect a movie to change your life. The acting in this movie was spot on. Will Smith hit it out the park as a father who had an extremely difficult time dealing with the death of his child. The ending was totally unexpected and great! There were only 1 or 2 moments that I felt were typical of scenes in movies but forgivable given the movie in it's entirety. The plot was unique, the acting was pretty good by the other characters. As a father I could feel what was going on in Will's heat and soul. Edward Norton's problems are experienced by many fathers who are on the loosing end of a custody battle with the mom bad mouthing the daughter concerning adult issues. Every reviewer that's digging really depend into the movie to dissect it really need to learn to sit back and watch a movie and enjoy it. It's really not THAT darn serious!!

Good story, better acting & great climax.

Me and my girls(wife & daughter) went to see Collateral Beauty....I rate it a 10! It's a Sensitive topic because I'm the father of a daughter. But since she was there with us, I was able to push thru the story line. Any man that is a father of a daughter will need to secretly keep some tissues in his jacket pocket. Many men (including me) don't truly know love, until the moment they first hold their daughters. At that moment, there's an inexplicable phenomenon that happens and the steel that shields a mans heart, that makes it incapable for him to cry or show emotion, evaporates. At that moment, all other priorities become irrelevant and the focus of the fathers remaining existence, becomes protecting his baby girl. My entire existence is to ensure she is forever the best of my ability. Will Smith captures the essence of every father that shares my relationship with my daughter and how I would prefer to take on any pain, sadness or issues that would come her way. If you can understand that level of LOVE...then you will certainly enjoy this movie. Good story, better acting & great climax.

A classic Christmas film it is not. A Will Smith sentimental vehicle it is.

"As I suspected, you're a rank sentimentalist." Captain Renault to Rick Blaine in Casablanca. Depending on Louis Renault's definition of Rick's quiet generosity, Collateral Beauty may rely heavily on the notion that its hero, Howard (Will Smith), is so sentimental about the loss of his five-year-old daughter that he is a non-functioning human being. Such role requires Will Smith to cry and brood excessively. After more than an hour of Howard's introspective boredom, some relief comes in the Twilight Zone, Christmas Carol, and It's a Wonderful Life motifs starring the abstractions Love (Keira Knightley), Time (Jacob Lattimore), and Death (Helen Mirren). They visit Howard at different times to question his withdrawal from a responsible life a full two years after his daughter's death. With a leitmotif of cascading domino pieces, it's hard to miss the implicit connection of all living things with a nod to the swift passage of time. Having seen George Bailey's redemption, we should not expect such a powerful transformation of Howard, for this film lacks the attachment to life that Wonderful Life indulges at its end. Collateral Beauty is a small film with big ideas of connecting itself with the great Christmas stories of the past, but it indulges so many troubled minor characters that it dares to miss the single necessary transformation of Howard in any depth. Watching him ride a bicycle is not my idea of thematic or character development. Collateral Beauty at best is a diversion from the season's numbing good deeds messages. Its sappy story numbs on its own. is a cinema website serving you dear visitors 7/24 to give information about all movies, now playing movies, show location of nearest theaters and sessions, trailers of upcoming movies and information about actors and actresses, their biographies, videos and photographs. is the only interactive website where visitors can interact with each other using Facebook, Twitter and Google. is a global website using highly advanced web technologies and is served in 7 different languages apart from English and can give the visitors same service from the countries where these languages are spoken.
