Breacher (Arnold Schwarzenegger) leads a group of DEA special ops who skim . On a big bust, they hide the money, only to discover it is missing when they go back for it. They end up in an internal investigation that gets dismissed. The group gets reinstated, but are now getting picked off one by one. Caroline (Olivia Williams) is an Atlanta City detective investigating the murders of this tight knit "family".

This is a "B" action/crime film. The whodunit plot I had pretty well figured out by the second kill. Our stars did not dazzle. No lines to take away. Arnold was rather dull and lifeless sitting on his rump, smoking a cigar. The film had some good action scenes, unfortunately the filler scenes didn't quite make it.

Makes for a good action rental. 3 1/2 stars

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (stripper + brief Olivia Williams)

The redoubtable Arnie (who's clearly still spending a lot of his time pumping iron), plays John "Breacher" Wharton, a D.E.A. investigating officer with a formidable reputation.
He heads a team of similarly intimidating and fierce looking D.E.A. officers - if you recollect Arnie's team of crack Special Forces soldiers in Predator, you'll get the picture. Sam Worthington plays one of the crew of officers - he sports a somewhat naff goatee beard bedecked with jewellery, which makes him look like a hipster who's trying really much too hard to be cool, and is a completely ill-fitting look for his character in the film.
The D.E.A. team go on a mission to retrieve hundreds of millions of dollars from the Rio Scarza drug cartel. The task is carried out with S.A.S. type clinical efficiency and with maximum prejudice to the bad guys. However, during the drugs bust ten million dollars suddenly goes missing.
Arnie and his team of badge-wielding bad asses fall under suspicion and get suspended by the D.E.A. The F.B.I. investigates and Arnie's crew starting dying one by one, in bizarre and particularly gruesome fashion. The team of agents start to lose trust in their buddies, and try to figure out which members of the criminal fraternity are most likely to be responsible for the atrocities. The middle third of the film basically plays out like a reasonably accomplished 'whodunnit'.
Arnie, even as a gentleman of advancing years, still has the required muscularity and physical prescence to carry off the role of a hard as nails tough guy. His D.E.A. team look suitably gimlet-eyed and fearless, though not quite in the same league as the hard nut troops in Predator.

This has to be seen to be believed for even at the height of the macho gun toting era of the mid to late 80's this film would have trouble holding a candle to the very worst of them. In short it is utter garbage. Arnie is well past his prime as he sleep walks his way through a script that a ten year old would have written in the space of 10 minutes. He has one expression on his face, a look of total confusion, the classic one liners he was once renowned for forgotten as at times he seemed to struggle just to remember his unmemorable lines. His crew is the total stereo typical bunch of hard men who swear and insult each other at every opportunity complete with a macho woman who proves she is just as tough as any man (is there any other kind in these movies?). In short you have a totally predictable film with a bunch of B actors who compete with each other to out ham the other with little acting ability to be seen between the lot of them. This film was so bad that I could not be bothered to wait for the inevitable conclusion to the movie for I turned dvd off twenty minutes in regretting the money I had spent renting this catastrophe in the 1st place. If this is the best that Arnie can do then the sooner he retires the better!

Of all of the Arnie films which have been released since The Governator stepped down, Sabotage is by far the most violent. The deaths, of which there are many, are realistic and grim, bloody and remorseless. Bystanders and main characters all meet their doom without fanfare, most of the main crew are unlikeable, and you should not expect a happy tale of ending like most of the classics from Arnie’s catalogue. Ayer brings the realism and a well-written script from a dialogue perspective, but the story is uneven, and the characters have essentially no room for growth; these are grunts only good for firing or being filled with bullets.
The film begins with a full-throttle, full-blooded drug heist. Immediately we see that the action movie of today is much more grounded in ‘realism’ than previous decades – the group attacks like a group, using tactics and planning that the writers have pulled from real world scenarios, rather than John Woo or Commando attacks. Our group are part of the DEA, but it transpires that they have plotted to wipe out the bad guys, burn most of the money, and keep $10 million for themselves. However, someone double crosses them and their money is lost, setting the rest of the plot in motion. There is intrigue, mistrust, fragile brotherhood, paranoia, and a lot of bloodshed as the group tries to cover their own tracks while investigating who stole their money – the tension heightened when they begin to get picked off.
As an action film, the movie ticks all the boxes – the gunfights are varied, realistic, and exciting – well-executed and convincing, and with a trilling car chase conclusion. The plot as a whole is fine, offering a number of twists and plenty of funny dialogue.
