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.

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.

Did Arnie have some decent motive for taking the money?

While Sabotage boasts the best of post-hiatus Arnie, Training Day writer and End of Watch director David Ayer fails to deliver.

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.

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.

For most of its running length, Sabotage is a gritty, compelling motion picture with twists to make a pretzel envious. Unfortunately, it overstays its welcome.
March 28, 2014
Sabotage starts off as a fun, nasty, occasionally surprising little piece of genre filmmaking. But it gradually loses the thread.
March 28, 2014
Director David Ayer has made two of the best films about the tough lives of cops -- Training Day and End of Watch -- but his streak ends with the very violent and ultimately forgettable Sabotage.

[an] ugly, abrasive and thoroughly charm-resistant bag of slop
March 28, 2014
So preposterous that no sane person could possibly celebrate it as anything other than inadvertent comedy.
March 28, 2014
It does have a weird, boldly ugly edge that makes for unexpectedly compelling viewing.
March 28, 2014
Horror movie-gruesome and pumped up like a 'roid rage, "Sabotage" is an abrasive, ugly exercise in macho nonsense.
March 28, 2014
This is the type of movie best enjoyed as a late-night indulgence on cable. Really late at night, when your eyes are still partially open, but your brain has called it quits.
March 27, 2014
This is the disreputable, even disgusting diversion the Expendables pictures should've been.
March 27, 2014
A modern-day, Georgia-set version of a spaghetti Western.
March 27, 2014
Rarely has a non-horror movie lavished as much attention on viscera and entrails; the only times brains enter the picture are from head wounds.
March 27, 2014
"Sabotage" isn't any good, even if its jagged, jolting visual excesses and frenzied energy keep you awake, gasping and guffawing by turns.
March 27, 2014
Bloody, banal and boasting a surprisingly able clutch of stars who will soon be deleting this from their rsums, Sabotage is a 109-minute cadaver count.
March 27, 2014
Anybody got a bar of soap? Hand it over. I've got a movie here that needs its mouth washed out.
