The Expendables

Posted on August 15, 2010


Old action heroes don’t die, they just get botched up facelifts and a bigger blade. Low-budget-look special effects…contrived, amateurish acting and something about mercenaries, local pirates and hostages, blah, blah, blah. It’s basically one big machine gun blast. A few laughs, the biggest comes when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) asks Ross (Sylvester Stallone) what’s eating Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Ross replies “He wants to be president.”
Mickey Rourke is pretty good as tattoo artist Tool. The sound and look of customized Harleys was kind of cool, but overall it was a pretty big yawn. Some guys may still like it if they’re into unbelievable fight scenes and excessive explosions.
