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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
