Excerpt: Sabotage marks Arnold's second post political life solo movie after The Last Stand failed to wow audiences. This film also came and went fast from theatres. Like the official review Sabotage is a dark and edgy Schwarzenegger vehicle much like End of Days was. Sabotage is also an ensemble with a wide range of wacko DEA agents. The movie is bloody violent, which isn't terrible per say and the varied toilet humor is funny for the moments in which it is used.

Excerpt: Synopsis: A team of unlikeable DEA Special Forces agents steals $10M during a successful raid on a high-value drug target and, soon afterwards, members of the team start dying. Can the rest of the team identify and stop the mysterious killer before he manages to finish them all off? Comments: I was hoping for another half-decent Ahhnold flick...but this wasn't it. It had an average story, bad dialogue, weak pacing and uninspired acting. It was, in a word, disappointing.
Summary: Yes it's another mindless Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun. It's got a pretty entertaining story and a lot of fun shootouts that is guaranteed to please die-hard fans of action. Acting is pretty standard for a type of movie like this, however, some of the actors, such as Terence Howard and Sam Worthington felt a bit wasted, as they didn't get the screentime Yes it's another mindless Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle, but that doesn't mean it...
Summary: Arnold Schwarzenegger heads a gritty group of DEA agents who are being hunted down and brutally murdered. This was written/directed by David Ayer (End of Watch, Training Day) and it's shows off many of his best traits: hard-edged violence, dark dealings, witty banter and tons of testosterone (even in the women).
Summary: I was really looking forward to a dumb night at the movies with the "violent and brutal" SABOTAGE featuring our former governor. Awnold is dweadful. The cast includes some major players--all given nothing to do. The script is awful, Screaming **** every other word is not wit. But worst of all, it is directed at a Downton Abbey pace. In fact, Downton is more action oriented. Much more!
Summary: A lot of blood and guts and an extreme amount of foul language. The theme was nothing new. The movie just didn't work as a whole. Also, A. Shwarzenegger, who I've enjoyed in more light hearted movies, was placed in a role which was not him. Way too serious for him.
Summary: Some people call them plot twists. I call it jumping the shark. This serious and violent film jumps the shark more than "Sharkanado" did last year, and that was a lot of sharks! By the end of the film I couldn't tell you if I liked this one or not? I still am not sure. The director tried to cater to the Arnold image but it feels shoehorned into a borderline horror fest thriller like Some people call them plot twists. I call it jumping the shark.
Summary: Arnold was great in it and it's uber violent in all the best ways, but it's also not an action movie. It's more of a mystery thriller that has some action scenes. All the characters and actors are wasted outside of Arnold though and the "twists' and narrative are nothing special. I really like Arnold movies but this is probably one of the few I just can't get into.
Summary: Wrong movie for Shwarzenegger. It is a gritty and gruesome action movie, and Shwarzenegger is obviously out of his usual element. It is a disaster. It is depressing watching him in this one. Nobody sane in mind would call Shwartzenegger in a movie like this.
