Whether or not it's a smooth little cutlet is another matter, but as far as action flicks go, it's certainly entertaining.

In Sabotage, the plot is too circuitous to give you that adrenaline rush of fitting finality, especially with all the collateral damage along the way.

The story boasts a dramatic personae of larger-than-life characters that are physically imposing but have little by way of personality.

There's something deliriously subversive about how proudly Sabotage wields its R rating. And while it's too clumsy to be good, it does tie together in way that's mostly satisfying.

Sabotage holds the honour of being one of the most boring and irritating films I've seen in a long time.

Schwarzenegger fans will enjoy this action fest, as this is undoubtedly his vehicle all the way.

'Sabotage' contains the most graphic nastiness of any film Ah-nuld has ever made. It'll keep your attention, but you'll possibly lose your lunch and feel slimed.
June 7, 2016
I's unfortunately weighed down by a plot that we've seen before and characters we care too little about.

The kind of cathartic action pic that's been long absent, reminding us that gritty revenge pieces have their place.

Arnie's macho crew are such an obnoxious bunch of meatheads - and that goes, too, for Mireille Enos, its lone women member - that you will struggle to care.

Part heist film, part action thriller, part murder mystery, the movie is punishingly violent (in one scene, the camera lingers over squashed body parts after a drug agent is hit by a train). The ugliness is so pervasive it becomes perversely fascinating.

...it becomes more and more clear that virtually all of the movie's protagonists are unlikable...

Writer-director David Ayer is hoping to unleash that bad guy action-noir vibe he successfully unhatched in "Training Day" and to a lesser extent in "End of Watch." This time, he lays an egg.

Scenes of people kicking doors down and shooting each other in the head are efficiently handled - it's everything else that's a problem.

It is worth remembering that John Wayne, an actor almost as inexpressive as he is, did much of his finest work at the tail end of his career. Sadly, post-gubernator Arnie hasn't yet found his equivalents to True Grit or El Dorado.

Arnie does his best but, as so often, turns out to be limited in scope: when called upon to look upset, his inner cyborg punctures the mood; when he sighs, we snigger.

There won't be any awards but, for the first time, Arnie is actually acting here.

The so-called Governator has returned to what he does best, or maybe not best, but certainly most lucratively, making films high on action and low on credibility. Sabotage scores impressively on both counts.
May 9, 2014
Despite some decent moments the film struggles to realise its potential.
May 9, 2014
Arnold Schwarzenegger gets one of his most complex roles yet in this messy, violent thriller, another trip to the dark side for filmmaker David Ayer.
