Arnold Schwarzenegger defends movie violence

Los Angeles: Hollywood action star Arnold Schwarzenegger has defended the level of violence in his new movie "Sabotage", saying that video games are worse.

In the film, the former politician plays a boss within the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), whose members meet an unpleasant end after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

The 66-year-old told a leading daily that video games are more violent than the movie, reportedly.

"I think violence is political now: `maybe if there is no violence in movies, there will be no violence in the world.` I don`t believe that. The video games our children play are much, much more violent than anything in this movie," he said.
