‘Sabotage’ the Resurgence of Traditional Action Films

GameStop, Inc.

Sabotage is the new action thrilled by writer/director David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch). When DEA agents steal $10 million in cold, hard cash from drug lords, only to have it stolen out from under them. The elite group of top agents turn on teach other while under federal investigation.

None of which crack, as John “Breacher” Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his agents stay strong in the face of adversity. The only problem is once the trust is broken, how can it be regained especially when various agents are the target of what appear to be revenge from a Mexican drug cartel that Breacher and the rest took down two years prior.

“The watch word in this is ‘reality.’ For actors, if you teach them the real skills, then when they get on set, they don’t have to worry about anything but what they’re doing and their performance. An actor can tell you, when they have the training there is a certain confidence about their physical performance. They don’t have to worry about where they are putting their hands or what they are doing, you want it to be second nature. One of the first things I did, I took these guys down to a facility Mark’s associatied with. Mark Schlegel, is a Los Angeles Sheriff’s special force bureau, which is their version of the SWAT team,” said Ayer, during the Sabotage press junket.

Having been filmed in Georgia, it was a true home coming from Josh Holloway, who plays Neck, both of which being from the southern state.

“I’m from Georgia, so I had a great time being back home. I grew up with three brothers and it was kind of my backyard. But Georgia is buggy and muggy or way too cold but it was amazing because we were there in the fall, which is the golden time to be in Georgia; when all the leaves are changing. It was amazing, I thought that was awesome and the-fact-that, like Joe (Manganiello), Atlanta is the hub for the cartel in the Southeast, so it’s appropriate that it took place in Atlanta,” said Holloway.

A beautifully shot film, that is a true resurgence of the traditional action genre, Sabotage is loaded with espionage, mistrust and shoot’em up action we have missed during the superhero take over during the last decade.

“I don’t think of it in the way as the ‘action genre is coming back.’ I think the action genre has always been popular. Especially those action movies that have a great story, those action movies that are multilayered and have great, interesting characters. The key thing is to entertain people. They are fascinated in the world we deal with in this movie,” said former Gov. Schwarzenegger.

Ayer added, “I think the genre got distorted by visual effects in the last 10 years and we returned to stunts and special effects, with real actors really doing it makes all the difference on screen versus relying on green screen, which the audience knows instinctively isn’t physically possible and removes the danger element from it.”

An action thrill ride that can be missed, Sabotage opens nationwide Friday, March 28, 2014.
