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)

I actually quite enjoyed this and so could you when you realise that its just pure hokum. Arnie plays the grizzled leader of an out of control DEA special ops team who skim $10 million dollars from a drugs cartel bust then realise they have been ripped off themselves. A year later having survived a DEA investigation they reform only for someone to start picking them off one by one. Plenty of action and brutality keep the film rolling along but the plot is hardly taxing and I found myself wondering how such a neurotic bunch could function at the level they are supposed to but what the heck, its only an action movie and there's plenty of that.
The picture is pin sharp and good use of the sound field is made in the numerous shoot outs so it is worth getting this film on blu-ray if you can afford it.

THIS IS A MOVIE REVIEW ONLY & WILL BE UPDATED WHEN RELEASED ON DVD/BLU RAY.

Sabotage.
Genre,Action/Thriller.
Running time 109 minutes approx.

Trivia.
1)Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sam Worthington have both featured in the Terminator franchise yet never appeared in any scenes together as Arnie starred in Terminator 1-3 while Worthington featured in Terminator Salvation.
2)Director David Ayer was forced to cut his movie by the studio to give the film a more action flavoured feel, Ayers original cut was rumoured to be close to 3 hours,
3)Josh Holloway is better known for the character Sawyer in 6 seasons of Lost.

Plot Synopsis.
John "Breacher" Wharton is leader of a team of DEA agents who raid a drug cartel safe house leading to the arrest of a major crime lord & a discovery to millions of dollars in drug money.

When $10 million dollars goes missing Breacher & his task force are placed under suspicion & then members of Breachers team start getting murdered one by one by the drug cartels with Breachers family being kidnapped in the process.

Could one of Breachers members be linked to the cartels as Breacher battles against the vicious cartels in a race against time to save his family.

Timelord Thoughts.
This film delivers a uneven tone which attempts to merge a action film with a suspense thriller & while this is by no means classic Arnie it isn't as bad as the critic's are saying.

Arnold Schwarzengeer is renowned for playing action heroes particularly during the 80s and 90s. He quit the movie business for some time to pursue a career in politics. He did another film prior to this. The key question here: Has Sabotage re-establish the movie career of Arnold? The latest one is not the finest pieces. The plot is about DEA agents under the leadership of John Wharton. Their mission is to track drug cartels. One mission is under investigation, as agents are accused of stealing money from drug cartels. The team are suspended until pending investigation. The film starts of well. It goes downhill after a certain time. It did not flow from beggining to the end. There are high levels of violence scenes. I did not feel much storyline developed following a promising start. Character development is weak, as details about John's character is sketchy.. The violence scenes overpowering at times. I am questioning the purpose of the scenes in context of the plot. It is a confused and disjointed piece of thriller. It heads no direction at all. The script writing expose weaknesses, as the chrarcters are poorly utilised.I have seen much better thrillers than this. It is underwhelming and did not thrill me at all, as I expect from a high octane thriller. 2 stars is a fair reflection. Critics offered negative reviews and for the right reasons. I think Arnold needs to much better than this mediocre piece of thriller.The action hero will soon become yesterday news, unless he gets a better script.I am dissapointed, as I expected better. I am being open minded and honest if a film is not good. If you are looking for a high quality thriller, look elsewhere. The ending is one of the weakest I have seen in a thriller. It is incoherent and a poorly crafted thriller. To elaborate, it felt the film completely shifted to something different. It is hard understand the relevance. I think this film will go down in price quickly. It is a shame, as it could have been good.
