In Sabotage, DEA-tact team lead by top brass Breacher (Arnold Schwarzenegger) swarms into the compound of a powerful drug nest and executes a high-stakes raid of $10 million for themselves. But the excruciating suspicion and scrutiny come when the money they embezzled is lost, putting the whole team under the microscope for months. When their charges are cleared for lack of credible evidences, one-by-one of the team members died under suspicious of foul play and possible revenge. Breacher is then, forced to work with Detective Brentwood (Olivia Williams) to solve the mystery.
There are so much problems in this movie yet there is nothing much to be discussed; simply because this B-rated action flick can be quite entertaining on occasions when the gritty violence component goes rampage. But let’s put it this way, Sabotage makes little sense and less creativity when it drives the mystery around and it seems that the plot is lazily connected. It does not make any better when the characters are lacking of proper chemistry, something that makes End of Watch interesting at all times.
In the end, Sabotage overstays the early welcome by being too sloppy, too lazy, too brainless and too pointless to follow; and the gritty violence does not help much at all.
