The Movie With the Best Tagline Ever!

"The Dark Heart Of The Black Ops Beats To A Secret Agenda..." "Sabotage" is a fantastic action movie. The plot: Michael Bishop (Dacascos) is an ex-army commando, who after almost getting killed, is asked to become a bodyguard for an arms dealer. After a routine pick-up at the airport, the dealer is killed by Sherwood(Todd), an assassin for the government. Bishop is blamed and he's on the run.

The plot description doesn't do it justice. This movie is an action-packed thrill ride. This is one the first movies to use the "bullet time" effects. This was made three years before the "The Matrix". The whole cast does a great job. The standout is Tony Todd as Sherwood. He's so evil, you just want to kill him every time he's on screen. This is one of Dacascos' best movies. ("Drive" is another Direct-To-Video Classic).

There is a lot of energy and thought put into the action sequences. The ice rink fight and the climax are just so cool.

"Sabotage" is highly recommended! For more insanity, please visit: comeuppancereviews.com
