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.

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'

Well worth a spin.

Very disappointed. Huge fan of Schwarzenegger and it has been great to see him back in action recently, but this must rank as one of his worst films. Great cast, good director, but the film appears to have been heavily edited, leaving huge chunks of the script on the cutting room floor. The 15 certificate is also a joke, the language and gore should have made this an 18. The role and the original path taken by his characture does not suit Arnold Schwarzenegger, even if by the rewritten end you can root for him slightly. Hope to see a return of form in his next film.

I generally like Arnold's films but this offering was totally devoid of humour, had a poor script (mainly comprising of F* words for the first 30 minutes) with characters that you really didn't care about. The film got slightly more interesting after the members of his DEA team started being killed off but the plot really doesn't hold up when you think about it afterwards. Arnold's worst film yet!
