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.

i liked this, it isnt brilliant perhaps but its good,borderline very good in fact. The violence is big and bold and bloody and thats what made arnie. so were expendables is lacking that , this will give you what you want, provided that is what you want. There is a half decent plot also and while arnie never really excels he is always watchable and the undercast do their bit well enough for me. I would recommend this to those who like silly enough films with some nice carnage akin to some of arnies 80s films.

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!

I’ve read a lot of reviews for ‘Sabotage’ and, judging by what I read, I was getting ready to endure the worst film I was going to watch all year. Seriously... I know Arnie isn’t famous for making deep and meaningful pieces of cinematic art, but I’ve never seen one of his films get so many one star ratings.

I should point out that I’m a big fan of the ‘Governator.’ I spent a lot of the late eighties/early nineties watching Predator, T2 and Total Recall. However, as he got older, his star lost its shine and his movies failed to capture the public’s attention the way they used to. However, I still found something in each of his later outings. Granted, they were not up to his ‘glory days,’ but they were still fun action romps. And that was all I was hoping for with Sabotage.

Here, the big man plays the leader of a drug enforcement unit who is accused of stealing money from a cartel and find themselves being picked off one by one. And, based on that brief summary, you’ll get whatever you expect from it. I think a lot of people didn’t like how serious it was. If you watched Arnie in Running Man or Commando then you may be expecting a wry pun thrown into the carnage to lighten the mood. Here, there is no lightening of the mood. It’s dark. And bleak. Arnie is not a happy man, but then his whole family were killed by drug lords, so I’d be surprised if he was constantly doing cartwheels of joy all over the place.

Also, a lot of people have criticised the film for having no likable characters. Yeah, that’s probably a fait comment, but then I didn’t see much of a problem. Most of them are there to be killed until Arnie and his cop lady-friend can work out who’s behind it.
