''Sabotage'' is a 2014 thriller directed by David Ayer, and written by Skip Woods and Ayer.

John "Breacher" Wharton (Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger) is the leader of an [[BadassCrew elite team of DEA agents]], including James "Monster" Murray ([[Film/{{AVATAR}} Sam Worthington]]) and his wife Lizzy Murray ([[WorldWarZ Mireille]] [[TheKilling Enos]]), Joe "Grinder" Philips (a hulking, bison-like Joe Manganiello), Julius "Sugar" Edmonds ([[IronMan Terrence Howard]]), Eddie "Neck" Jordan (Creator/JoshHolloway) and Tom "Pyro" Roberts ([[PacificRim Max]] [[CaptainPhillips Martini]]). The team comes under investigation for pilfering money from a bust on a drug cartel's safe house. Turns out they DID pilfer the money, but someone made off with it before they could retrieve it. As if the investigation and their own suspicions about each other weren't enough, they are now being killed off one by one, and a local police investigator, Caroline Brentwood (Olivia Williams) is shining an additional light on the team's activities. Is it the cartel exacting their revenge, or is one of the team members the killer?

No relation to the 1936 film by Creator/AlfredHitchcock.

!! This film provides examples of:
* AccidentalPublicConfession: [[spoiler:Lizzy admits she's been cheating on Monster with Sugar. As betrayed as Monster feels, Sugar is ''horrified'' that their affair was just just revealed to the entire team.]]
* ActionGirl[=/=]FieryRedhead: Lizzy.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Both Monster and Grinder meet privately with Brentwood to reveal the truth.]]
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:After Breacher admits to a mortally wounded Lizzy that ''he'' [[IDidWhatIHadToDo stole the money]], he shoots her, evades Brentwood, and winds up in Mexico, where he bribes an official to finger the cartel member who killed Breacher's family. He tracks said killer to a dive bar and executes him, but is fatally wounded in the resulting shootout. The film ends with him enjoying a last drink and cigar as he bleeds to death.]]
* BondOneLiner: Grinder to Brentwood, as she arrives at the hideout of the Guatemalan hit squad Breacher's team just wiped out.
-->'''"Cleanup on Aisle Three..."'''
* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:Grinder gets his brains blown out by Lizzy]].
* ChainedToARailway: A rare male example, as Pyro wakes up to find his RV has been dragged into the path of an oncoming train.
* CluelessMystery: Right up until the WhamLine, there are no overt hints as to who's knocking off Breacher's team.
* ClusterFBomb
* ColdSniper: Husband-and-wife team Monster and Lizzy split the honors here. Includes ImprobableAimingSkills, and usually results in a BoomHeadshot.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath:
** Pyro, who's RV is struck by a train. With him still inside.
** [[spoiler:Neck, who's disemboweled and hung from the ceiling of his house]].
** [[spoiler:Monster, who is stabbed by Lizzy and then literally StuffedIntoTheFridge.]]
** [[spoiler:And ''especially'' Breacher's wife and son, whose torture and murder is videotaped and mailed to Breacher - along with a steady stream of their body parts.]]
* DirtyHarriet: Lizzy infiltrates the cartel safe house as a party girl.
* DreadlockWarrior: Grinder.
* DwindlingParty: To the point where the film seems like a horror movie.
* FakeIrish: An implied in-universe example. Lizzy owns a (presumably fake) Irish passport. [[spoiler: She plans on using it to flee the States but Monster shreds it and in a rage she murders him.]]
* FunctionalAddict: Lizzie. About to lead the team through a live-fire refresher drill, Breacher realizes that she's high. She, in turn, assures him that she can still perform her job without endangering the rest of the team.
* FingertipDrugAnalysis: Lizzie does this to ascertain the contents of some jugs found in a raid contain pure liquid meth.
* {{Gorn}}: The film goes out of its way to show the mangled remains of Breacher's dead team members.
* GoryDiscretionShot: The film, surprisingly, does not show [[spoiler:Sugar's mangled body after he got in a messy car crash]].
* [[spoiler: TheHeroDies: Breacher at the end.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Breacher's entire team. Even Breacher himself tends to act like a callous DeadpanSnarker whenever he's around Brentwood, ''the one person trying to help him and his team''.
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll: Breacher's entire team is dead by the end of the movie. [[TheHeroDies Including Breacher himself]]]].
* LockAndLoadMontage: After being under investigation - and "on the beach" - for months, the team is ecstatic that they can finally suit up for another mission.
* MoreDakka: The raid on the safe house is momentarily derailed when a cartel {{Mook}} starts shooting at the team. Through a ''wall.'' With a belt-fed machine gun.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: [[spoiler:Lizzy abandons her husband Monster, runs off with Sugar, then ends up killing Monster. See also StuffedIntoTheFridge.]]
* NeverTrustATrailer: A particularly egregious example. The story suggested by the trailer is often ''miles'' away from the actual film's plot, and new lines of dialog are actually looped in to perpetuate the fraud.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Brentwood takes her eyes off Breacher for only a few seconds at the end of the movie, which leads to his escape]].
* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler:Sugar's inferred demise after his getaway car slams into the back of a tow truck.]]
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Sam Worthington, from time to time.
** Olivia Williams' accent wavers between Southern drawl, flat American, and her native ReceivedPronunciation.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Most of the squad. Only Breacher and Lizzy are regularly referred to by their real names.
* PostClimaxConfrontation: [[spoiler:The shootout in the Mexican bar]].
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Despite Breacher's claim that his team are some of the best undercover operatives around, when they aren't on a raid, they mostly party, brawl, and rag on each other.
* ShootOutTheLock: Breacher's main task on raids, and hence his nickname.
* SlashedThroat: How [[spoiler:Lizzy]] kills [[spoiler:Monster]].
* SlobsVersusSnobs: Breacher's team's opinion of Brentwood. Includes an attempted BreakTheHaughty moment when Brentwood walks in on the squad partying, and Grinder menacingly demands she have a beer with them. Unfazed, Brentwood's response is to shake the bottle and spray Grinder with beer.
* SnuffFilm: Breacher gets one - of his family being tortured and killed by a cartel thug.
* StripperCopConfusion: Happens to Brentwood when she arrives at Breacher's house to get a statement from a team member. And of course, the ''real'' stripper arrives just as she is leaving.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: A literal example - [[spoiler:Breacher and Brentwood find Monster's body in the fridge after Lizzy stabs him]].
* TokenMinority: Sugar and Jackson, both of whom are black.
* WhamLine: See BittersweetEnding.
* WorkoutFanservice: Breacher in the gym.
* YourCheatingHeart: Monster suspects Lizzy is two-timing him when she tries to leave their house with a pistol and two condoms in her purse. [[spoiler:She is, which leads to her AccidentalPublicConfession.]]
