The action scenes are huge and excessively violent on a scale not seen since the closing scenes of Commando. At one point, in the absence of any buildings to detonate or ammunition depots to destroy, I think I saw an explosion explode.
the kind of all-out, over the top action movie they just don't make anymore, which is probably a good thing because the human brain can only take a movie that provides the equivalent to getting three consecutive adrenaline shots so many times.
Equal parts self-conscious joke and sly throwback to low-budget action movies of the 1970s, The Expendables works its grindhouse cliches until they work... at least, they work for anyone who fondly remembers the sleaze of yesteryear.
