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

I love seeing each of these action stars do their own little thing which makes this just the kind of action movie to watch more than once. I am looking forward to seeing Expendables 2 on DVD when it comes out.
In conclusion, if you are an action freak like most guys are, you will love this film.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Monadnock Defensive Tactics System)
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.
The movie is well worth watching it wasn't rated by most as high as the Expendables 2, which I also rated as a 5 star, however this movie should be rated just as high as the second one in my opinion. I can't wait for 3 to come out.
