Consensus: Sabotage boasts one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's finer post-political performances, but it's wasted in a movie driven by grueling violence that punishes seemingly without purpose.

I don't know what Ayer is trying to prove by dunking the camera in spilled guts and having it linger over charred and frozen corpses.

Sabotage starts off as a fun, nasty, occasionally surprising little piece of genre filmmaking. But it gradually loses the thread.

Arnie's macho crew are such an obnoxious bunch of meatheads - and that goes, too, for Mireille Enos, its lone women member - that you will struggle to care.

What redeems all this, to some extent, is Ayer's bleak but honest vision... he understands how law-enforcement people witnessing the depths of humanity might lack the necessary character to climb back up.

Part heist film, part action thriller, part murder mystery, the movie is punishingly violent (in one scene, the camera lingers over squashed body parts after a drug agent is hit by a train). The ugliness is so pervasive it becomes perversely fascinating.

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