The Expendables Reviews
The coming together of some great classic action heroes was fun to see. The meeting in a church of 3 big action heroes with long successful careers is a classic moment.
The bad guys are despicably bad. A girl needs saving. A bunch of classic heroes get their fair share of badass action fighting scenes. Bad guys pay their dues.
One thing I didn't like, and this is just me, was too much blanket firing and big explosions, where I didn't feel sure that people who deserved to live weren't going down in some of that fire.
Some of those soldiers may have had no choice but to work for an evil dictator. Just a thought.
It's really really badly written, and feels like a straight-to-DVD action flick. And despite what some die hard 80's action fanboys say, that's really not a good thing.
Plus it's amusing to see all these guys try to out-quirk one another for an entire film, so give that a look to see who's the corniest, as they all have their silly moments.
Give it a rental.
