Reviews: Sabotage (2014)

sabotageReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Arnold Schwarzenegger sigue reposicionándose en el Hollywood actual con un thriller de acción que coquetea con el slasher y el pulp. Un reparto simpático adorna una propuesta para pasar el rato, sin más.
  • Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
    • Excerpt: Swatting away a thin but competent premise in favor of randomness, Ayer suggests that his film’s script holds minimal importance, an ironic approach from the guy who still flaunts his “Training Day” writing credit as if the film debuted last year.
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: ‘Ayers]’s gone so over the top he’s made an R-rated cartoon, one in which he’s turned ‘The Killing’s’ Mireille Enos into a rabid, man eating and beating glassy eyed junkie with pupils the size of manhole covers.
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: …a love letter to action fans who haven’t quite given up yet on a once thriving genre.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [I]f we’re going to be dragged through the morass of the worst human nature has to offer, we should at least expect a point to getting so dirty.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ Doddle
    • Excerpt: It’s nothing more than an excuse for Arnold to literally throw his weight around, bludgeoning us with equal parts of carnage and deathly boredom … which is sort of like killing us twice.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Flimsy, testosterone-fueled stop on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s mucho-macho comeback tour.
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ [Ukrainian]
  • Travis Hopson @ Examiner
    • Excerpt: Safe to say this is the most violent film Schwarzenegger has ever been a part of, although it’s not nearly as torturous as Jingle All the Way.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Feels like a cheap action flick and not the serious drama it is presented as, and plays like an unintentional call to end drugs prohibition and the idiotic war between cartels and law enforcement.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Armed with a hard R-rating and the nastiest sensibilities in a non-slasher movie, “Sabotage” is brutal and vicious, making no apologies for its ruthless disregard for human life. It’s also ugly and stupid.
  • Oktay Ege Kozak @ Oregon Herald
    • Excerpt: Sabotage had so much potential to turn into an uber-violent DEA version of End of Watch, too bad it ends up as kind of a stale slasher flick for the gun nut crowd. We already know from watching an excellent film like End of Watch and even a terrible one like Street Kings that writer/director/cop dialogue extraordinaire David Ayer has an authentic eye when it comes to depicting the intimate inner world of police officers.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @
  • Kristen Lopez @ Cinema Sentries
    • Excerpt: Sabotage, is certainly a brutal throwback to the ‘80s actioners of Schwarzenegger’s youth
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
  • Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
    • Excerpt: It dials down the po-faced expression and turns up the sly grin enough for it to be enjoyable for those willing to go along with its increasingly ludicrous plot.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: A grim, blood-soajed, very ugly excercise in mayhem and macho action.
