Review: The Expendables

An all-star cast of action-movie icons headline Sylvester Stallone’s explosive action thriller about a group of hard-nosed mercenaries who are double-crossed during a treacherous mission. Approached by the shadowy Church to overthrow tyrannical South American dictator General Gaza (David Zayas) and restore order to the troubled island country of Vilena, stoic soldier of fortune Barney Ross (Stallone) rounds up an unstoppable team that includes former SAS soldier and blade specialist Lee Christmas (Jason Statham); martial arts expert Yin (Jet Li); trigger-happy Hale Caesar (Terry Crews); cerebral demolitions expert Toll Road (Randy Couture); and haunted sniper Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran who never misses his mark.

Now this was a rag tag bunch of guys blowing up cars, buildings, and pretty much everything else. I haven’t seen a movie such as this in a long time, not much of a script except for some very fun characters with a lot of fighting and shooting. I was excited to see The Expendables and it didn’t disapoint, its not going to win an Oscar but you will enjoy what Stallone and his crew have to offer, a great enjoyable movie. I am a really big fan of the action genre and this has all of the best stars wrapped up into one package. It’s every action junkies dream.

The Expendables Trailer

Now this is a movie I have been hearing rumors about for a long time, all I kept hearing is that Stallone kept recurriting different actors and now you can see it in this trailer. This is exactly the type of movie I love watching, non-stop action with some humor thrown in. The best part is a lot of my favorite actors are in it, Jet Li and Jason Statham being the top two and the team is hilarious and the action is fantastic. Now we just have to wait for the release.
