Sylvester Stallone stars as Barney Ross, leader of The Expendables, a tight-knit team of skilled combat vets turned mercenaries. Hired by a powerful covert operator, the team jets off to a small South American country to overthrow a ruthless dictator. Once there, they find themselves caught in a deadly web of deceit and betrayal. Using every weapon at their disposal, they set out to save the innocent and punish the guilty in this blistering action-packed thriller.
They might be expendable, but they sure are durable: The Expendables is crammed with well-traveled action heroes, called to a summit meeting here to capture some of that good old ultraviolent '80s-movie feel. Star-director Sylvester Stallone rides herd as the leader of this mercenary band, which includes Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Stallone's old Rocky V nemesis Dolph Lundgren. Mickey Rourke, looking like a car wreck on Highway 61, plays the tattoo artist who communicates the gang's assignments to Stallone; throw in Terry Crews and Ultimate Fighting champ Randy Couture, and you've got a badass crew indeed. The specifics here involve a Latin American island where US interests have mucked up the local politics beyond repair--but when Sly's eye is caught by the feisty daughter (Giselle Itie) of the local military jefe, a simple job gets complicated. Adding to the B-movie flavor of the enterprise, we've got Eric Roberts and Steve Austin bouncing around as badder-than-the-bad guys, plus Bruce Willis popping in for a one-scene bit, and… well, perhaps another unbilled cameo. The violence doesn't reach the frantic pace of Stallone's last Rambo picture, but it builds to a pretty crazy crescendo in the final reels, during which each cast member gets to show his stuff. Although Stallone's face looks younger than it did in the first Rocky movie, his line delivery is more sluggish than ever, and what lines! The dialogue is stuck in the '80s, too. Although it's pretty ham-handed throughout, The Expendables is likely critic-proof: the audience that wants to see this kind of body-slamming throwdown isn't going to care about the niceties. Let the knife throwing begin. --Robert Horton
Love the cast. Entertaining action movie. Do not recommend for younger family members.Published 1 day ago by Kali the Cat
I thought it was fun and my wife thought it was stupid. She is right of course but it was still fun.Published 1 day ago by Nathanial T Miller
I'm giving this 5 stars because if I don't my husband will divorce me. If he was writing this review it would probably be 12 pages, but I'll just say it was pretty good. Read morePublished 3 days ago by christina brady
I found this to be a bit lacking the first time I watched it but it got better with time. I still have a problem with that final, obviously fake explosion.Published 4 days ago by Rogelio Busby
It was full of destruction, shooting and blood and guts. It was also pretty funny at times. It was great to see all those guys together in one movie.Published 5 days ago by usparkle
I've seen this before and liked the concept and seeing old actors do a film like this. But I purchased this on Amazon and I always have trouble viewing movies on Amazon. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Marlene

Chuck Norris & Van Damme have been confirmed for the second one. Also, Schwarzenegger & Willis will have bigger roles in it as well. There's also rumors of Travolta & Nicolas Cage in the second one. I hope it's as good or better than the first movie.
