An elite DEA team raids the safe house of a drug cartel and hide $10 million in the plumbing. When they go back to retrieve the money it is not there. The team is under investigation for the missing $10 million. Then after a couple months the investigation is lifted. The team trains together again and then celebrates at a strip club. Then one of the team is murdered. He wakes up in his RV on railroad tracks. Then a second team member is nailed to the ceiling. The third team member is gunned down at his remote cabin. There is a female City of Atlanta investigator in charge of the murders. After investigating the cartel angle, the twisted truth comes to light.
There has been so much total crap at the movies these days that I don't like to waste my money. And if I have already done so, I don't want to waste my time. If a movie sucks I'll walk out.
Sabotage looked to me like it would be a fun, if not award worthy, movie. And it was.
Let's face it, Arnold is getting a little over the hill to be playing in action movies. He's pushing 70, for crying out loud. In a federal job he'd have been forced into retirement a long time ago. But if you can get past that, and the fact that supposedly everyone on the team wants to sleep with a skanky crack whore, then it's really not a bad flick.
Yes, some of the dialog was hard to listen to. But I write dialog so I might be more picky than others. Also, the fact that everyone on the team can hit any target they aim at anytime they want to, unless...unless it happens to be in the big finale, where no one can hit the broad side of a barn, just to prolong the scene - that's was a little far fetched.
Other than that, not a bad flick. Not Arnold's best. But definitely not his worst either.
