Arnold Schwarzenegger has come out of political retirement to lead the team and looks suitably grizzled and war-torn in his role as John "Breacher" Wharthon. Expect more air quotes here amongst the team as bromance, tattoos, explosions and big oily guns bristle. Sam Worthington has brushed off his mythical trappings since his role in the Titans films and looks the part as sidekick James "Monster" Murray. Sporting a Charles 'Mansonesque' goatee and shaved head, Worthington looks almost relieved in a role which is a drastic departure from clashing swords and blue alien smooching.
Following a drug raid on a cartel warehouse, the DEA team misappropriate ten million dollars, storing it in a secret location so that the team can return to the pile of cash and share it out later. Wharton's boss at the Department soon discovers this cash is missing and the team are implicated. When said cash disappears from its secret location, Wharton has a world of worry on his hands, not only from the DEA, but the Drug Cartel too. His biggest problem, however, is that there's a traitor amongst the group which he is going to have to weed out. Things go from bad to worse for Wharton, and the search becomes personal.
Fans of Ayer's work should not be disappointed; with fast pace, plenty of humour, artillery aplenty and a gripping story, it looks like he may strike gold again with Sabotage.
Sabotage is out for general release in the UK on May 7th.
