Movie pick: Sabotage

Movie pick: Sabotage
Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in Sabotage.

I've reviewed more than 3,000 movies, and this is easily one of the worst I've seen.

Looking every bit his age, 66-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a Drug Enforcement Administration agent who leads a team of undercover scumbags.

They steal a bunch of money, but then someone takes their booty and they start getting killed off one by one.

Then we learn Arnie's wife was murdered.

Anyway, the plot isn't the problem - it's pretty standard for a junky thriller.

The real problem is the aggressive unpleasantness.

Schwarzenegger's crew - Joe Manganiello, Terrence Howard, Sam Worthington and others - are such vile pigs that it's impossible to care if they die.

The violence is sickening.

There's non-stop toilet humour.

No thanks, basically.
