Summary: A dirty and sleazy cop movie that's plot, while interesting, lacks intelligence. I pretty much pegged who did it shortly after the bodies started pilling up. Arnold's team might not be the most enjoyable bunch, but the man himself delivers. It's just a shame about all that terrible dialog, the worst of it coming from Olivia Williams character. Despite it's hard to like supporting cast and bad one-liners it's an overall entertaining romp.
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: If this is not one of the worst movies of all time then I don't know what is. God awful plot/dialogue, Weak acting by a very experienced and "talented' cast, not to mention the overly long run time. It's simply an awful movie.
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 that they deserved.
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). The macho cast creates tuff, enjoyable characters with Mireille Enos (best known for "The Killing") hilariously hardcore and against type.
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! The subject and plot is over the top but no one is given a shot to ham or camp it up.
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 "Seven" or "8MM". I did like it better than that campy "The Last Stand" from last year.
