The Expendables

Choose your weapon.


The Expendables
An almost-complete lineup of ageing action stars get together to kick some butt. The storyline is borrowed from numerous similar movies of the past and becomes increasingly thin as things progress. It involves a multi-talented group of tough guys who get involved in sorting out a nasty South American dictator, before going back for more to rescue a young woman. Should appeal to young men.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIt comes off like a shallow imitator of the real thing, with not much in the way of plot or overall cohesiveness based on a solid game plan.

Tomatometer quote iconIt makes good on the old-school action it promises, but given all the talent on display, The Expendables should hit harder.
