Certainly not a great film, but an enjoyable slice of surprisingly low-key, classic '80s action filmmaking complete with an awesome cast.

... a perfectly enjoyable mercenaries-on-a-mission-of-redemption adventure with a mix of testosterone-fueled camaraderie and this-time-it's-personal seriousness.

Suitable for a night of cold beer, chili, and a hot woman at your side...

The film's climax delivers and delivers and just keeps topping itself, making it possibly the most satisfying experience since cheeseburgers after a very big night.

Final notes: this is a movie in which Dolph Lundgren is expected to convincingly portray a junkie and have an American accent. Also, Jet Li plays a character called Yin Yang. Do with this information what you will.

If the plot line doesn't leave you numb with disbelief, the excessive explosive outbursts and viscerally edited dismemberments will drop you, or someone you care about, wet in the seat.

It was a walk through 1984 and it was a pretty decent stroll.

It's fun to see this aging cast together on screen, but the movie is junk. The one-liners aren't funny, the dialogue is tedious, and the action itself is prosaic and repetitive.

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.

Ljubitelji akcije neće biti razočarani količinom "ore" i "ege", uključujući i obavezni zavrni obračun gdje ačica junaka rastura cijelu vojsku negativaca

How many actions stars does it take to get audiences into theaters? THIS many.

The entertaining action scenes are as weighty and gnarly as the actors' grizzled mugs.

Wow, I haven't seen this much over-the-hill action since Don Ameche and Hume Cronyn did laps in Cocoon.

Stallone Can't Choose Between Thoughtful Meditation of Age and Violence or Just a Cheesy Throwback to the mid-80's. A Pity.

The Expendables is admirable for bringing these actors all together, but shameful for not having the integrity to do anything of value with them.

humble, subtle and restrained

We can understand the need to have a support group for elderly action heroes who want to relive the glory years. But did they have to release it as a film? Unnecessary.

Except for 'youngster' Jason Statham, Stallone's band of geriatric heroes are pretty creaky
August 26, 2010
What we get is pure, unadulterated B-movie stuff, with an A-budget.

The action sequences are terrific, the violence excessive. The guiltiest of guilty pleasures, then.
