Synopsis


The Expendables
An all-star cast of action-movie icons headline Sylvester Stallone's explosive action thriller about a group of hard-nosed mercenaries who are double-crossed during a treacherous mission. Approached by the shadowy Church (Bruce Willis) to overthrow tyrannical South American dictator General Gaza (David Zayas) and restore order to the troubled island country of Vilena, stoic soldier of fortune Barney Ross (Stallone) rounds up an unstoppable team that includes former SAS soldier and blade specialist Lee Christmas (Jason Statham); martial arts expert Yin (Jet Li); trigger-happy Hale Caesar (Terry Crews); and cerebral demolitions expert Toll Road (Randy Couture). Traveling to Vilena on a reconnaissance mission with his old pal Christmas, Barney meets their local contact, a cagey guerrilla fighter named Sandra (Giselle Itie), and together the trio scopes out the landscape.. It isn't long before Barney and Christmas have discovered that their actual target is not General Gaza but James Monroe (Eric Roberts), a former CIA operative who has recently gone rogue. Monroe won't be easy to get to either, because his hulking bodyguard Paine (Steve Austin) is a force to be reckoned with. When their mission is compromised, Barney and Christmas are forced to flee, leaving Sandra behind to face almost certain death. But Barney isn't the kind of soldier to abandon a mission, or a hostage, and now in order to get the job done he'll need the help of his old crew. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    You know all these dudes from the 80's and 90's. They were slathering on that cheese and making you happy by blowing up stuff for you. The story is paper thin with just enough to justify the action scenes. The extended edition adds a little pathos to the whole affair but it's not very different. It rocks and for a budget title you can't go wrong.

    The Expendable Movies are great action films with a who who's of every great action star. Growing up watching action movies you were always wondering if certain actors worked together what it would be like. Well Stallone made it happen and cranked up the action meter. The Expendables is a thrill ride from start to finish. A must own.

    I think this is a movie designed specifically for the guys who grew up in the 80s or 90s and have watched these actors during their prime,. Sometimes as I saw it, it felt like a combination of Rambo, The Transporter, and Fist of Legend all crammed into one movie. That's not a complaint. This is just one massive adrenaline rush of nonstop action sequences.

    I wan't too big of a fan of the theatrical, but seeing the unrated has made me a fan. Plot goes more into Stallone's character, which is a plus because theatrical was somewhat limiting, and there's pretty much more of everything. Dolph gets more screentime as well. Definitely recommended.

    When I hear they were putting together some of the bigger action stars of the '80's, I was pretty stoked. However, the movie is a little heavier than expected. It's still fun to watch, but fortunately the fixed this with the second one which was a much more fun movie.

    Got the bluray, dvd, and digital copy, plus got 8 dollars movie credit to see the new expendables movie in theatres. Great deal all the way around. The movie itself I would not recommend for kids because of the language and violence. The film though is pretty cool.

    I have enjoyed the Expendables series though I had some issues with the 3rd one and 2 was an 80s action fan's dream come true. The director's cut of the first movie improves on what was already a great film. More blood, more action, more testosterone.

    This is a great action movie and the Extended Director's Cut just makes it all the better! If you like action movies don't miss out on this version, even if you've already seen the original as the added scenes make it an even better film!
