A novelty film, the novelty being seeing all of these great action stars together in one big action film. Unfortunately, most of them are past their prime, and it's hard to share the spotlight. The action is great, but it just isn't enough to carry the film this time. The characters and plot just aren't developed enough.

This one is the epitome of the phrase 'does what it says on the tin'; you know exactly what you're getting into from the word go. Some of the barely there cameos could've honestly been excised altogether without really missing out on anything, but overall it was a fun little watch and will probably be one of those movies I find myself getting fished into on cable, just because it's a fun ride..

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.

The Expendables rounds up a cast of action stars from the 90s era and puts them on a special mercenary squad. The squad features Stallone, Statham and Crews who are sent to an island to take on a corrupt general and rogue CIA operative. The Expendables is just what you expect, some fun action and your typical blockbuster. The movie really does not add much else and does not feature some of the other stars nearly as much as the trailer would have you believe. Like most movies with a popular cast, the film would not be even on the radar if not for the cast.

If you like the smell of anabolic steroids.

Have to agree, it should have been better with all that talent!

Great film for entertainment

A lot of sharp, masculine, bloody and often ridiculous fun. Although the acting and script are often a little weak, the magnitude of the fighting sequences and explosions outweigh the skimpy dialogue, making this guy's movie thoroughly entertaining.

A load of cliches with tar power does not a good movie make. Avoid. Not even stupid enough to be fun.

Close to 2.5. Better for the comic side that from the action, as expected, but not funny enough.

The Expendables is quite a "meh" flick the characters really don't hit the mark with the friendship aspect as the banter and dialogue often feels forced and out of place, the story is extremely cliched and has been done plenty of times granted it does have some entertaining moments with some great action.

This movie is embarrassing to watch. Some of them are worse than others. Some of these plastic tough guys, like Stallone. These guys are latent.

The Expendables isn't the kind of film that's meant to have a plot, let alone need one - its a summer blockbuster full of A-list stars, big, ballsy action and laden with huge explosions sure to entertain the average viewer. The film moves at such a pace that you don't really get time to stop and think about any kind of story featured in this very enjoyable action spectacular - this is what the movie does very well. Stallone, Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li are all at their trigger-happy best too.

One star purely because I didn't actually smash the computer up in a rage

I Can't Understand The Dialogue By Stallone..Luckily, He Never Stars In Very Complex Stories. Scripts That Spell The Story Out To The Audience Including This Revealing Line, (Stallone) 'What's Wrong With This Picture?' (Statham) 'Everything'...Need We Know More??

All the great action stars of the 80s come together for a romp in the cheese. Lots of fun, but the ultra violent climax kicks it up a notch above a normal time waster. Stallone still knows how to make an enjoyable action film.

This movie made me happy and sad at the same time. What's the word for that?

Soooooooooooo corny, laughed the whole time! And this was when I was the perfect age for this schlock.

Along with The A-Team, The Losers and From Paris This Love, this is another cronicle in the sad story of failed 2010 Macho-Lots-of-Guns films.

Decent start to the franchise. Lots of actions. Lots of violence. Little plot. Couldn't ask for much more.
