Hey people of the internet, time to review a trailer again! Today I’m having a look one I’ve been meaning to review for a few days now, it is the review for the next Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Sabotage. So besides having the same name as one of my favourite Beastie Boys songs, this next Arnie picture looks pretty decent and has my attention as another film I may be excited for in 2014.
But before I get into all the details check out the trailer below yo:
Well this looks interesting. Now I am a sucker for a good action thriller, but I am genuinely interested in see what this film has to say. The first thing that sounds out is Arnie and how he has changed his psychical appearance for a role which makes him look a lot more active and interesting than in say films like Expendables 2 or The Last Stand, here it looks like he’s just continuing the roles he did back in the 90’s but with newer faces around him which is cool. I also like the cast involved too. Besides having Arnie which is a huge selling point for me, you also got Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello and Olivia Williams to name a few. It just seems like an interesting collection of people in one place, I just hope they all have a chance to stand out.
I like the whole family unit idea of this team, how they’ve been through a lot together and have a good bond, but then I’m also down with the idea of conspiracies and inside jobs, and this film seems to have that covered. I hope that the action hold up too with some good film work and choreography because of I’m tired of this films not having some unique visual flair yo.
Now the only worries I have about this film is the fact that a lot of what I’m seeing in this trailer feels familiar. the whole “someone on your team is a traitor” and the whole “hey main character, they’ve got your wife” kind of thing, that and other things haves all been done before. It seems like the trailer has shown me that film has the thriller/crime and action elements down, but I just hope that the story is smart and interesting enough to hold the audience or we’ll just end up with something that is all style and no substance. But luckily we do have David Ayer behind the film, he’s done good work before so let’s hope he does well here too.
In conclusion Sabotage looks like it could be a lot of fun, I mean sure it’s gotten several plot elements that we’ve seen in action thriller films before, but I think the cast and premise looks cool and interesting enough to warrant a watch. Plus we’re in an age where Arnie is back on the big screen after almost a decade away, I’m gonna stick around and see what he’s up to.
What do you think of Sabotage? Are you interested or excited for this film our are you just not bothered? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below and I’ll see on the next review yo! 😀
