Director David Ayer is known for gritty, dark, intense crime thrillers like Training Day and End of Watch. Screenwriter Skip Woods is known for garbage like X-Men Origins: Wolverine and A Good Day to Die Hard. Between them, can Sabotage turn out okay? It’s hard to say, but we’re pretty sure throwing in Arnold as a DEA agent running a team of scummy and corrupt officers versus the Cartels isn’t ideal casting.

Nevertheless, Arnie has to deal with his own crazy team, the watchful and suspicious eye of his superiors at the agency, a troubled past and someone who is brutally killing off members of his team, as well as a troublesome accent from Olivia Williams, playing a local cop investigating the murders.

We brought in Ashley, JC and Chris to sift through these forensic details. Check out their review!

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
