I watched Sabotage last night and I enjoyed it as much as one can enjoy such a dark piece. It wasn't your typical Schwarzenegger thrill ride, that's for sure. This one was seriously grim at times; the good guys were seldom that good, though the bad guys were surely that bad. It was fast-paced, complex, and it was centered by a solid performance from Arnold, who seemed to be summoning Clint Eastwood. There was definitely a western vibe to the picture and there were enough twists and turns to keep the audience guessing. Sabotage is a difficult watch in many ways, but it was highly-entertaining, with a game cast and a dark heart to go along with an abundance of violence and profanity.
