Sabotage trailer: Ayer, Woods and Arnie

Sabotage.jpgWhat a combination. David Ayer directing and co-writing, Skip Woods writing and a cast that is headed up by Arnold Schwarzenegger in what looks like a seriously tough role, and supported by, in no particular order, Olivia Williams, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Josh Holloway, Joe Manganiello and Max Martini.

Just writing that out is enough to get me excited but then I went and caught the red band trailer and it looks good.

The blurb for Sabotage goes something like this. Well actually it doesn't go something like this, it is this:

Arnold Schwarzengger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world's deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done - until, one-by-one, the team members mysteriously start to be eliminated. As the body count rises, everyone is a suspect.

The bit that it doesn't say is that the team lead decides to go after the Cartel, after all attack is the best form of defence. Before I say anymore on the film have a look at the red band trailer through TrailerAddict:

Now doesn't that look good? It should do because David Ayer directed Training Day, End of Watch, Street Kings, Harsh Times and Skip Woods wrote Swordfish, Hitman (Filmstalker review), The A-Team (Filmstalker review), A Good Day to Die Hard, and those two together should make a great combination.

You can see it in the trailer where Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't the standard action hero. He's holding back and the scenes we see here are playing it real. That's what Ayer can do for the film while Woods provides an action film with some thriller elements, Ayer can add a kick to the groin of reality.

I'm rather excited about that combination and not only what it could do for Schwarzenegger's latter career but also what Schwarzenegger can bring to the film. It'll be rather refreshing to see him play a weightier role that this trailer suggests and if you think that it wouldn't possibly work, think of Keanu Reeves in Street Kings.
