At the Box Office: Arnold Schwarzenegger Stars in New Film "Sabotage"

At the box office, Arnold Schwarzenegger leads a group of agents taking on the world's deadliest drug cartels. Here's a review from our film critic, John Ary.

Arnold Schwarzenegger pulls out the big guns for his latest film Sabotage. This could just be the bloodiest, most violent of his entire career, which is really saying something. Arnold's character heads up a DEA task force. Each member of his team gets murdered in a
horrific way, one by one, after they rob a drug cartel's safe house.
Before walking into the theater, brace yourself. You're going to see a lot of people die in horrible ways, with such graphic detail that you may want have your hands at the ready to quickly cover your eyes. We're talking gunshots to the head, bicyclists run over with cars, and a guy nailed to the ceiling of his house. Perhaps the only thing messier than the carnage is the script. Writer/director David Ayer has created a dark gritty tale of greed that makes sense while you're watching, but will fall apart as soon as you start thinking it through on the way home. With all that said, the action flows well highlighted by Arnie leading his team of grungy DEA agents into loud shootouts, full of automatic gunfire and blood splatter. I just wish the bad guys plot made more sense. I'm John at the Movies.
