Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
This brutal, bloody, dark and at times gruesomely funny thriller isn’t some David Fincher-esque mood piece where all the clues come together at the end. It’s more like a modern-day, Georgia version of a spaghetti Western.

For most of its running length, Sabotage is a gritty, compelling motion picture with twists to make a pretzel envious.

The movie wants it both ways: bloodthirsty revenge and some finger-wagging about the tactics.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

By Joe Williams
This is an extremely gory flick, with autopsy scenes to complement Schwarzenegger’s usual shoot-first sensibilities. After 30 years, it’s pointless to complain about the collateral damage in his movies, but here Schwarzenegger is taking vigilante justice to dark new levels that can only be reached via plot holes big enough for a Hummer.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Sabotage cannot be called a good movie, not with a straight face. But as an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, it has something.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By David Hiltbrand
This is the type of movie best enjoyed as a late-night indulgence on cable. Really late at night, when your eyes are still partially open, but your brain has called it quits.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Stupid, sadistic, misogynistic, confusing, and more than a little ridiculous. Here’s the thing, though: It keeps you watching, if only to see how tortured the plot or characters are going to get. I’m not sure that “entertainingly awful” is a recommendation, but the shoe fits.

Slant Magazine

By Chris Cabin
There's no sense of visual artifice to match the ludicrous pitch of the script, and subsequently, the film comes off as awkward and uncertain.

New York Post

By Kyle Smith
So Arnold Schwarzenegger has reached the shaky-cam-and-hoodies stage of his career. But it’s a bit late in the day for Arnold to try to get all indie and complicated.

USA Today

By Scott Bowles
Indisputably the most violent film of the year and disputably the worst.
