Sabotage Reviews

The film around them is too, too much: too gruesome, too locker-room, too busy, too populated, and too daft.

It doesn't really work. It's a bit like finding Mary Berry serving at your local kebab shop - it just doesn't feel right.

Did Arnie have some decent motive for taking the money?
May 8, 2014
This is an ugly, brutal beast of a picture that plays like a video nasty from the Eighties.
May 8, 2014
While Sabotage boasts the best of post-hiatus Arnie, Training Day writer and End of Watch director David Ayer fails to deliver.
May 8, 2014
There's plenty to guiltily savour - most of it unintentional - in a revenge yarn that unspools like End of Watch played for laughs.

Straight to DVD would be a kindness; straight to the waste bin would be a justice.
May 8, 2014
If you relish outbursts of weird Arnold pronunciation, the moment where he exclaims, "Time to do the Looward's work" is another minor classic.
May 7, 2014
Feels like a cheap action flick and not the serious drama it is presented as, and plays like an unintentional call to end drugs prohibition and the idiotic war between cartels and law enforcement.
May 6, 2014
A terribly generic action thriller with more holes in the plot than you'll see at a golf course.
May 4, 2014
A bloody, scuzzy, progressively preposterous whodunnit, blending old school and new wave to neutering effect. One chunky plus: the all-new Antihero Arnie.
May 4, 2014
A film that happily lingers on extremely graphic disembowelments, yet can't get out of the room fast enough when Arnie is about to have sex.

In the end, it's the lure of his star that does for Ayers' movie. After a couple of very unlikely plot twists, the film quickly turns into a standard, Arnie action vehicle.

The story spins off into a pseudo whodunit as the group fall victim to apparent revenge killings, but it's sweet relief because most of them have all the charm and appeal of root canal treatment.
April 25, 2014
Clever in many respects, with a finale that sinks to silliness, 'Sabotage' is much more than a vehicle for Arnold Schwarzenegger.
April 19, 2014
Ayer ramps up the four-letter-word-laden trash talking to a degree of obnoxious self-parody, with what should merely be comic enhancement keeping the main mystery hook from gaining traction and building tension.
April 6, 2014
Flimsy, testosterone-fueled stop on Arnold Schwarzenegger's mucho-macho comeback tour.
April 3, 2014
I don't know what Ayer is trying to prove by dunking the camera in spilled guts and having it linger over charred and frozen corpses.
April 3, 2014
What redeems all this, to some extent, is Ayer's bleak but honest vision... he understands how law-enforcement people witnessing the depths of humanity might lack the necessary character to climb back up.
March 30, 2014
Director David Ayer is proving to be increasingly adept at character work, but the plot of Sabotage is too dumb and opaque to recommend the film.
