04.15.14Netflix Wanted to watch an action movie and was curious because I like Good/Bad/Weird ok and really liked I Saw the Devil. I feel like this would've been ok if the script wasn't completely and utterly terrible. I mean the plot is ok and most of the action was ok, but every line out of every character's mouth grated on me. Oh and the whole corvette thing and fbi thing and Peter Stormare as a... I guess Texan? All that should go too. I guess maybe it's more like if this was the first draft of a script that was then handed off to someone who knew anything about the law who then handed it off to someone who knew how people talked... then it would work. You also have to wonder if there's director translation issues too, right? Or maybe it's me? Maybe the dialogue all the performances in I Saw the Devil were as hamfisted and terrible as they are here and I just wouldn't know because I'm too busy reading subtitles? Who knows. Either way. Not a good movie.

I'm curious about Sabotage though. I'll watch that when it hits Netflix. Hopefully Arnie can use this as a lesson that his old career is dead and open up to more interesting - if less headlining - roles.
