From action hero to governor and back to action hero. After a long stint in Californian politics Arnold Schwarzenegger continues his quest to reclaim the silver screen. This time in the crime thriller 'Sabotage'. Schwarzenegger plays the head of a special Drug Enforcement Agency task force that finds its members being mysteriously assassinated one by one. However the film didn't get off to a good start. Slammed by critics and grossing only 5.3 million dollars on its opening weekend, 'Sabotage' marks the worst ever opening for the one-time box office superstar. But the disappointing figures don't seem to deter the actor. SOUNDBITE: Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor, saying (English): "Failure, there's nothing wrong with failure. What makes you a failure is if you don't get up but if you just fail, and you get up again, you can continue on. People always will forgive you for failure because people know that that's life, that you try things, sometimes they work, sometimes they doesn't work." After all, Arnie knows that taking risks is simply part of the job. He keeps his feet firmly on the ground. SOUNDBITE: Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor, saying (English): "Yeah there were movies that went in the toilet. Yes there were movies that weren't as successful as I wanted them to be but then there were other movies that went through the roof. There's no science behind it. You cannot pick movies that are always just successful. Sometimes you pick failures." 'Sabotage', which also stars Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams and Terrence Howard opens in the UK on May 7.
