These gentlemen deliver a wonderful story plot and all of the 'Ego' and 'Muscle' too. In addition, there are some really funny 'lines/statements' from previous movies that 'poke fun' at some of the actors.
It's good entertainment for Action, Story Plot, and Comedy. These men still deliver what America seeks...Edge of you seat action!
I really enjoyed this movie...very much so.
This was more fun than playing with my kids' rock 'em sock 'em robots or Evel Knievel rocket car. Knives, guns, explosions, choppers, and a bunch of middle-aged action heroes that have held together pretty well (except Mickey Rourke).
I enjoyed Stallone's performance, Lundgren was great and I always enjoy David Zayas, no matter what he's in. The blu-ray made the action feel up close and personal.
I would recommend this to anyone out there looking for an old style (but with current technological improvements) shoot-em-up action flick.
Without giving away too much in the way of spoilers, I'd have to say the back and forth banter between the stars is like a band of combat experienced brothers, that have been to hell and back, kidding around and picking on each other until its time to get into badass action against the baddies where all heck breaks loose in personal combat, special effects, badass weapons, and explosives. At times, I found myself saying "Whoa, WTF! That is sooo cool !!"
Sylvester Stallone is the leader that holds it all together. The Expendables team crew has most everyone you could ask for in the way of old time heroic action stars. I'm sure you could add more but for me these were plenty. The bad guy and his cronies are believable, formidable, and the type you "love to hate" and you just want to see get their just desserts ! And they DOOO!! Nothing is ever easy and these baddies put up a hell of a fight but in the end its.... Yippie ki yaaa ...Hasta la Vista, Baby !! Yeeee-Haawww ! Foward Men!!
Along the way, the characters have their own humorous and/or not quite so serious personal issues popping up like "whack a moles" that add to the movie and let us feel for them as human beings as well as play on the charisma of the individual stars involved. Even the bad guys have their moments when you think "Hmmmm, they must have had a bad upbringing or something, they're only human"- but boy are they NASTY! and must be blown up, shot down, pureed in a blender, or what have you...before they do it to yooouuu...!!" and the Expendables are the answer!!
If you like these kind of action movies with these actors and humor then see it by all means. It won't dissapoint!
