Review: Sabotage (Blu-Ray)

Published

on

Sabotage DVD

If you’re looking for a non-stop adrenaline rush, look no further than the pulse-pounding action film Sabotage, which comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on July 22nd.

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.

Schwarzenegger is joined in Sabotage by an impressive supporting cast including Sam Worthington (Avatar), Olivia Williams (Hanna), Terrence Howard (Iron Man), Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike), Josh Holloway (Lost) and Mireille Enos (World War Z).

You can watch the trailer for Sabotage here:

The movie is directed by David Ayers, acclaimed director of End of Watch and screenwriter of Training Day. With a resume like that, it goes without saying that Ayers knows a thing or two about hard-boiled tales of law enforcement along the California/Mexico stretch, as it’s sort of become his calling card.

When Sabotage first came out in theaters, it received harsh reviews from the critics, and after watching the movie myself last week, I can see where some of the frustration lies, as the movie starts heading downhill after the first act, and it never really recovers. Adding insult to injury is an ending that twists and turns in an attempt to be clever, but it’s really just convoluted and convenient.

But that didn’t stop me from enjoying the movie. Schwarzenegger and his all-star cast kept me on the edge of my seat for the full 1 hour and 50 minutes, and I genuinely had a good time getting lost in the story. Picture quality on the Blu-ray looked stunning, and the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track made you feel like you were right in the thick of the action.

As for extras, you get two alternate endings, both of which are notably different from the theatrical ending and might appease those who had issue with the original ending. There are also eight deleted scenes, including a small romance arc with Breacher and Caroline, and a little more on the Sugar arc. In addition, there’s Making Sabotage, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie that had some interesting moments.

Overall, I thought Sabotage was entertaining enough that kept my attention for nearly two hours, a feat into itself. Sure, it might not be for everyone, but if you liked what you saw in the trailer above, ignore the critics and give it a shot when it’s released on Blu-ray and DVD next week.

Watch The Terrifying Final ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer

Published

on

Universal Pictures just released the final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, which is set to stampede into theaters on June 22nd, 2017.

It’s been 4 years since Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment, and Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. But when the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire must rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

But that’s not all. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition discovers that a shadowy arms company has created a genetically-engineered dinosaur called the Indoraptor, described as “the most dangerous creature that ever walked the earth,” that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times!

Naturally, it’s up to Owen and Claire to save the world, because as Dr. Malcolm wisely reflects, “those creatures were here before us and if we’re not careful they’re going to be here after us.”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this!

Published

Disney has released the official trailer for their upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, giving us fans a peek at the next standalone installment of the Star Wars franchise. Like many of you, I was a little hesitant about a Han Solo origin story.

But after watching this trailer, I’m all in!

The trailer for Solo opens with young Han being recruited for a job. He tells Tobias Beckett that he’s a driver and that he’s waited a long time for a shot like this. Becket warns him that once he joins, he’s part of this life forever. And so it begins.

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars sagas most unlikely heroes.

We wish we could just make the jump to May 25th already when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, but this trailer will have to tide us over until then.
