Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Netflix Series Is A Watered-Down True Lies

In “FUBAR,” Arnold is Luke Brunner, a 65-year-old CIA agent (Schwarzenegger is actually 75, but hey, he looks great and he looks like he can still kick everyone’s ass, so let’s let him be 65) on the cusp of retirement. Luke’s secret life in the CIA took a toll — he’s divorced, and he badly wants to reconcile things with his ex Tally (Fabiana Udenio). Luke has spent his entire career lying to the people he cares about, including his daughter, Emma (Monica Barbaro). Now, he figures it’s time to set things right.

But you know how these things go. “One last job” pops up that Luke cannot refuse — the fate of the entire world is at stake. He also has a personal connection: years ago, he killed a criminal and then took it upon himself to provide for the bad guy’s son, Boro. Now, Boro is an adult (played by Gabriel Luna, who co-starred with Schwarzenegger in “Terminator: Dark Fate”), and following in his father’s footsteps. It seems Boro has gotten his hands on a portable WMD, and that’s bad news for everybody. Boro has no idea that Luke killed his dad — he just sees the man as his benefactor. The agency figures Luke can go back undercover, use his relationship with Borro to get close, and then retrieve the weapon. 

But…you know how these things go. The job isn’t going to be that simple, especially because while on his mission, Luke sees an unlikely face: Emma. Yes, as it turns out, Emma is also a CIA agent. Neither of them had any idea about the other, despite the fact that they work for the same agency out of what looks like the same office building (how did they never run into each other?). Now, in true “buddy cop” fashion, Luke and Emma are forced to team up and work together, something that won’t be easy since both of them are pretty ticked off about being lied to for all these years
