A must-see for those eager to get in touch with their inner-simpleton. T1-3, respectively (Arnold Who Else?), and T4 (Sam Worthington) unite as targeted members of a renegade DEA team systematically being picked-off by an unknown assassin in director David Ayer’s (End of Watch) colossal garbage scow of a movie. After the predictable whodunit plotline begins to unspool, you’ll find yourself with with cup in hand, begging for a return to the scatalogical, f-bomb-infused action salvo that opened the show. As the cop assigned to the case/love interest, Olivia Williams actually dignifies the putridity with a bound and determined performance. Biggest casualty: Terrence Howard. Once considered a bright star of his generation, Howard is now reduced to a background extra for 90% of the picture. What remains serves to illustrate the term death-by-billing. Mother of mercy, make Sabotage the end of days for Arnold’s movie career. 2014.
