David Ayer's Sabotage with Arnold Schwarzenegger hits Blu-ray/DVD this July

05.22.2014by:

Arnold fans who missed the Austrian Oak's latest big-screen effort SABOTAGE will get their chance this July when the film hits Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital download. Although not a smash at the box office, the film had Arnold and his cohorts go through a blood-soaked, R-rated actioner that deserved a better audience. Although our review for it was middle of the road, I personally found it to be the best film in Arnold's resurgence that also had some great performances from his co-stars as well, including Joe Manganiello, Mirielle Enos, Sam Worthington and Olivia Williams.

Director David Ayer delivers his usual blend of hardcore action with gritty, grizzled, and oftentimes ugly characters that make for a much darker film that you might expect, which fits Arnold well, who exudes an Eastwood-like statue throughout. This is a cool flick and one I think folks will have fun discovering on video and could easily find cult status as the years go by.

Here's the synopsis:

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the pulse-pounding action film Sabotage, from the director of End of Watch and the writer of Training Day. When DEA task force leader Breacher Wharton (Schwarzenegger) storms a heavily armed cartel safe house, rogue members of his team use it as a cover to steal $10 million in cash. But just when they think their secret is safe, agents are killed off one-by-one, and everyone is a suspect, including the squad itself.

Here's the disc details:

The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack includes a Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD with UltraViolet™.
 
Bonus Features (Blu-Ray and DVD):
·       Making Sabotage – a behind-the-scenes look at the production.
·       Alternate Endings
·       Deleted Scenes

SABOTAGE hits Digital HD on July 8, 2014 with the Blu-Ray/DVD hitting shelves on July 22, 2014. PREORDER HERE!

Extra Tidbit: For those that missed this in theaters, did you do so with the intent of catching it on video or lack of interest?

Definitely going to pick this up

I saw this opening day, and unlike his previous post-gubernatorial it wasn't complete trash. Was "The Last Stand" dialogue so inept or was Arnold a little rusty? Maybe both. I know Arnold is no Olivier, but if you watch his acting over the years he's really matured into the grizzled veteran that we have today; why then the awkward one liners in that movie?
Oh well, I thoroughly enjoyed the darker nature of Arnie here and Peckinpah's infliences were obvious. A shame nobody went to see it.

Loved it!

I was lucky enough to catch it at the theater the day it came out and I agree Paul that out of Arnold's recent movies I think this is the best and his best recent performance as well. Admittedly I'm a hardcore Arnold fan but I can discern the good from the bad so that didn't influence my feelings towards the film.

Definitely much darker than I anticipated and the characters were often unlikeable but it still worked, and in fact that's part of what made it work for me. I left the theater

Well they do make money if you buy DVD's through JoBlo so expect them to be pushing the product hard.

I was expecting more from this film. The trailers were really misleading. It was an okay film that could have been much better.

And Josh Holloway can't catch a break. He's not even on the front cover for this film and everyone else is.

Came and went too fast for me to see it in theaters. I'll be checking it out on Blu-ray for sure.

Did the Studio pay you to write this?

I haven't seen the movie, so I have no clue whether it's any good, but this is possibly the most blatantly commerical-ish article I've ever seen on this site, and feels really out of place compared to your usual DVD roundup articles.

No money in my pocket, sorry. Just thought we'd share the release of a movie that didn't get the best attention. A lot of overseas folks missed it as it didn't open up in their regions, including Canada.

Paul. Im glad you wrote this article. As a Canadian I was pissed and surprised that an Arnold movie wasnt getting a "wide" release and completely skipped Canada. First time in 28 years that ive seen a major Hollywood release skip Canada. Will pick this up day 1.

Okay, it just felt really out of place compared to your usual DVD announcement articles, especially for a movie which your own site pretty much panned, although like you mentioned, I suppose those were other writers on this site who panned it.

Certainly, our reviewers have their say, but the writing staff, myself included, are always entitled to our own opinions, which is part of the fun of the site. Perhaps this sounded contrary since I enjoyed the film much more than Eric, who reviewed it for the site. We don't all have to agree, which is cool, because everyone that works here is a fanboy who definitely has his/her own opinion. And that's what makes it so cool to work here. It's a gaggle of film geeks, each a little different and

It's a gaggle of film geeks, each a little different and with their own perspective. I dug Sabotage. I think one day it will be appreciated on another level and I'm glad a wider audience will finally be able to see it.

Cheers, guys!
