There are fewer action scenes than you might expect from a Schwarzenegger movie entitled Sabotage, but it hits hard when it comes, a visceral opening sequence effectively setting the tone. A climactic car chase is a high point - superbly shot by Ayer - but the violence is almost brutal for the sake of being brutal, with gory deaths doing nothing to elevate the story. For all of Schwarzenegger's star power however it's Mireille Enos' Lizzy who makes the biggest impression, standing out from a posse of macho men and stealing every scene she's in. As for the rest of the envious ensemble, Olivia Williams and Harold Perrineau make for likable homicide detectives whilst Joe Manganiello, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway and Max Martini are largely wasted on one-note characters. Arnie completists will enjoy seeing the Austrian Oak on good form, but as a whodunit thriller Sabotage is found severely wanting.
