This throwback Arnold Schwarzenegger movie is a total must-watch. (And no, we’re not talking about The Terminator.)

Introducing Sabotage, which originally hit theaters back in 2014. Now that it’s available to watch on Netflix, it’s already claimed the number nine spot on the streaming service’s list of most-watched films. (It’s currently ranked behind Army of the Dead and The Woman in the Window.)

So, what’s it about? Sabotage (which is loosely based on Agatha Christie’s classic novel And Then There Were None) introduces viewers to John “Breacher” Wharton (Schwarzenegger), the leader of the DEA’s Special Operations Team.

Join Wharton and his team as they take on their latest assignment, which involves raiding a violent drug cartel’s safe house. They complete the mission (and secretly steal $10 million), but it’s not over yet. When the men start getting targeted, they must determine who’s responsible…before it’s too late.

In addition to Schwarzenegger, the movie features an all-star cast, including Sam Worthington (James “Monster” Murray), Olivia Williams (Investigator Caroline Brentwood), Mireille Enos (Lizzy Murray), Kevin Vance (Bryce “Tripod” McNeely), Terrence Howard (Julius “Sugar” Edmonds), Joe Manganiello (Joe “Grinder” Phillips), Harold Perrineau (Investigator Darius Jackson), Martin Donovan (Floyd Demel), Max Martini (Tom “Pyro” Roberts), Josh Holloway (Eddie “Neck” Jordan) and Troy Garity (Agent Spolcheck).

Sabotage was directed by David Ayer (End of Watch), who also co-wrote the script alongside Skip Woods (Thursday). Woods, Jason Blumenfeld (Labor Day), Anton Lessine (Fury), Joe Roth (The Great Debaters), Albert S. Ruddy (Million Dollar Baby), Sasha Shapiro (Dirty Grandpa) and Geoff Yim (Jungle Red) served as executive producers.

Schwarzenegger, Worthington and Manganiello? Say no more.
