“Sabotage” is an action/adventure movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington and several other fairly well-known actors. The movie was written and directed by the same people that brought you “Training Day” and “End of Watch,” which were two movies I really liked and consider classics. The movie centers around a DEA task force super team on a mission where 10 million dollars mysteriously disappears. After an investigation, something is happening to each team member that was involved with the case. What’s happening and who’s harming the team members? You’re going to have to watch the movie to find out.

After looking at the cover of the Blu-ray, I was a bit suspicious and thought this was a clone of “The Expendables.” I was half right because there is a semi all-star cast part of the DEA task force, but I felt “Sabotage” had better plot and a more in-depth story to tell. There was a lot of violence, explosions, unwarranted profanity, and mindless scenes, but it was exactly what I was expecting from the movie. The acting was pretty bad most of the time, but most people don’t focus on that aspect when watching any action movies. Overall, I thought this movie was okay to watch, but some scenes were very unnecessary and could have been left out. If you liked any of “The Expendables” movies, “Sabotage” is right up your alley, but for me, I don’t think I can watch it again. For those reasons, I am giving this movie a “D+.”
