It's been a rough ride for Arnold ever since he decided to make the transition back from politics to movies. Other than his nearly spectacular retro team up with Stallone on Escape Plan, every project has been an ill advised retread of everything he's done before. And Sabotage is no different. The dialogue is flat and wooden. The action sequences are tired looking and unrealistic. And the plot, (what there is of one) is so terribly thin, I could cut it with a plastic butter knife.

At the onset of the marketing campaign, my hopes were high that Schwarzenegger was finally going to make a good old school eighties shoot 'em up movie again. After the sickeningly stupid The Last Stand and his needless Expendables cameos, Sabotage could have been a return to form for the one time king of action cinema.
If the story had been more fleshed out and if the director, David Ayers, had paid one ounce of attention to how horrendously cheesy and one sided these performances were, he might have had a chance to rekindle the meandering career of this muscle bound senior citizen. Don't waste your time with Sabotage. It's almost worse than the Expendables movies.
