Was so awful we got up and left
4 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was bad - real bad. We don't often get up and leave a movie but that's exactly what we did about half-way through this steaming pile of junk. We kept thinking that we should give it a little more time to straighten out into something watchable but it became clear that wasn't going to happen.

And what made it so execrable? Well for one thing, the violence was needlessly excessive, although that is not really what bothered me. What was bad was the fact that there was no one good in the movie - no one to root for. Everyone was a varying degree of lowlife - not a shred of presence of a decent or family person.

And then the language. My goodness, the language in this movie was atrocious - and I don't just mean the neverending use of the F-word which was both boring and stupid. But also the extremely coarse and vulgar sexual dialogue and references. I saw End of Watch and thought the F-word was needlessly excessive but I don't remember the intense sexual dialogue that Sabotage has.

I've seen plenty of R-rated movies in my time that are tame compared to this one. This film should have gotten an NC-17 in my opinion based on the extreme language and violence. I go beyond saying that this movie wasn't for children to say that it wasn't for adults, either. And judging by the box office bomb Sabotage has been, I don't think I'm the only one to come to that conclusion (there was virtually no one in the theater when we were there on the opening Friday night at prime time).

And don't expect to enjoy any of the light-hearted humor of Arnold's earlier movies. I've enjoyed many Arnold movies over the years due to this humor but Sabotage is bereft of it. Arnold goes around depressed and brooding and is really boring to watch. It was also disappointing to see good actors like Mireille Enos and Terrence Howard participate in such drivel.

All in all, I hope I save a few people from watching this terrible movie. It's just not worth your time.
