“Sabotage” Film Synopsis:
“Sabotage” centres on Commander John “Breacher” Wharton (Schwarzenegger) and his team of elite Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officers who shuts down operations of the dangerous drug cartels in the U.S.
Because of the team’s outstanding performance during missions, Commander Wharton trusts them completely and considers every one of them as “family.” The team has been proven to be the best in the DEA and was given one of the organization’s biggest case yet.
As usual, everything was smooth sailing in the said operation, up until it was reported that a large portion of the acquired money went missing.
The masterminds behind the drug cartel started looking for the money and connected the bust with Wharton’s team. Then, they diverted their attention to the families of every squad member including Wharton’s. He was then brought in for questioning and he learns that there’s a chance that one of his kin is behind the bust.
When team members began to be eliminated one by one, Wharton started to question his trust in them because now, everyone is a suspect.
“Sabotage” was previously titled “Ten” and “Breacher” before ending up with its current title.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, the star-studded film got the attention of 93% or a whopping 7,681 users of the site (as of this writing) who are all excited to see the movie on March 28, 2014.
Schwarzenegger, who was the former Governor of California, shared his enthusiasm on working again in another action film. He appeared in the blockbuster movie “The Expendables 2” in 2012 and “The Last Stand” with Johnny Knoxville in 2013 after an acting hiatus since 2004.
He even tweeted a photo of himself while wearing full DEA gear with a gun and several bad-ass tattoos.
