I love Arnie action flicks, but was a little disappointed with this one. It's slow paced and there are a couple of plot holes that can't be dismissed. The film doesn't quite manage to pull off coherently the twists and turns that the plot is trying to convey.. It's really only at the very end that you get a bit of a flavour of the Arnie flick you wanted this to be. I have to say though, in this movie and his last 2 actioners we see Arnie actually doing some proper acting which I am enjoying. The violence in SABOTAGE is frequent and quite extreme - even by action flick standards - and I found the video footage portrayed at several points in the film actually disturbing (probably owing to the fact that it reflects graphically the atrocities committed today by religious fundamentalists). This film was ok, but it's not like ESCAPE PLAN or THE LAST STAND - films that adhere more to the classic Arnie style of movie we know and love!

Enforcement Officer 'John 'Breacher' Wharton' (Arnie) leads a 'DEA' unit on a bust of a high profile Drug Cartels
heavily guarded 'Safe' house.
The team during the OP' try to take a cut of the pallet of money stashed within the property, however when they
come to collect, it appears that they have been double-crossed.
The OP' itself seemed to have been successful in closing the cartels operation down, however, there is a matter
of Ten Million Dollars that has gone missing.
The Team are closed down while an investigation is conducted by the agency, however after six months of drawing
a blank, the team are reinstated.
Members of the team start dying, violently, trust between the once close unit begins to fragment, they begin to suspect
each other, could it be that the cartel are after them ?
Meanwhile the police are conducting an investigation into the deaths of the team members led by 'Caroline' a Sergeant,
she finds the remaining members of the team uncooperative, however she needs to find out what is going on.
The big questions that remain unanswered include,
Who's got the money ?
Who's doing the killing ?
It seems that 'John' needs to resolve the issues his way, will the Sergeant allow him the space to do so ?
There are many good and often graphic action sequences along the way, as the film reaches it's conclusions a
decent chase and gun-fight sequence and finally leading to the films bloody conclusion.
The film should content the many 'Arnie' fans.
Also among the cast - 'Sam Worthington' 'Terrence Howard' 'Kevin Vance' 'Olivia Williams' and 'Joe Manganiello'
(Fellow reviewer 'Timelord' brought this one to my attention)
Well worth a spin.

I have to say despite all the negatives with older mega stars making low budget movies this is not bad at all. There were parts that were a little disjointed, but this is in no way Arnie's worst film and I am including his big budget blockbuster in this statement. The big explosions are replaced with a lot more gore. The fights are one strike bullet or stabbings (apart from the torcher scenes), not the best film to watch for the squeamish.

The film starts with Arnolds (the field commander of a black ops DEA team) wife being torched and killed the video and body parts are sent to him. 8 months later Arnold leads his team on a mission to destroy the cash of a drug cartel. The team decide to pocket some of the money before it is destroyed. When they go to collect their ill-gotten gains they find someone has beaten them to it. The trouble is everyone thing they really did steal and stash it. Finally cleared the team parties hard and trains a bit to get the rust off. Now with members being brutally murdered is it the Cartel out for vengeance or is it an inside job. Enter a police investigator who cannot let the case go but is completely out of her depth.

An ok movie I would have given it 3.5 stars but I had to round it down as I don't think it quite deserved 4. By no means one of Arnold's worst, he even gets a chance to show a bit of his training roots.
