Product Description

Amazon.ca

They might be expendable, but they sure are durable: The Expendables is crammed with well-traveled action heroes, called to a summit meeting here to capture some of that good old ultraviolent '80s-movie feel. Star-director Sylvester Stallone rides herd as the leader of this mercenary band, which includes Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Stallone's old Rocky V nemesis Dolph Lundgren. Mickey Rourke, looking like a car wreck on Highway 61, plays the tattoo artist who communicates the gang's assignments to Stallone; throw in Terry Crews and Ultimate Fighting champ Randy Couture, and you've got a badass crew indeed. The specifics here involve a Latin American island where US interests have mucked up the local politics beyond repair--but when Sly's eye is caught by the feisty daughter (Giselle Itie) of the local military jefe, a simple job gets complicated. Adding to the B-movie flavor of the enterprise, we've got Eric Roberts and Steve Austin bouncing around as badder-than-the-bad guys, plus Bruce Willis popping in for a one-scene bit, and… well, perhaps another unbilled cameo. The violence doesn't reach the frantic pace of Stallone's last Rambo picture, but it builds to a pretty crazy crescendo in the final reels, during which each cast member gets to show his stuff. Although Stallone's face looks younger than it did in the first Rocky movie, his line delivery is more sluggish than ever, and what lines! The dialogue is stuck in the '80s, too. Although it's pretty ham-handed throughout, The Expendables is likely critic-proof: the audience that wants to see this kind of body-slamming throwdown isn't going to care about the niceties. Let the knife throwing begin. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars Big booming surprise. Jan. 20 2012
Format:DVD
I wasn't holding out much hope for this film, I mean, how does one deal with all the egos? The film was cliched, ham fisted, more than a tad shallow and totally self serving, ludicrous is a word I was use too, and having said that I LOVED THIS PICTURE. My Lord what a guilty pleasure. Waaaay too much fun. Heck even my wife liked it. I'm not going to tell you who is in it, nor blow some of the best lines, just go get the damn thing. I can not wait for the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Good Fun April 1 2012
Format:DVD
I watched this movie with my husband and we both enjoyed it quite a bit. It had a little bit of everything, action, humor, fight scenes, explosions, car chases and the list of celebrities in this movie is great. So if you're looking for a great action flick that you can enjoy with your significant other, this is the movie for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Expendable: perfect gift for my grandpa! Dec 11 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Growing up, I watched movies with Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li and all those guys! My grandfather was a huge fan of those actors! I huge fan of action movies! Don't need to have a precise mind blowing scenario or storyline, just "action, action, action"! So, I bought it for him for Christmas! Ordered it on Amazon, got it a couple of days later in perfect condition!

3.0 out of 5 stars Action Heroes Still Have What It Takes Aug. 22 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Expendables was a little disappointing due to the darkness of many of the scenes - made it difficult to understand some of the actions happening. Lots of action but expected more from this star studded cast. We look forward to seeing Expendables 2 and 3 and hope for improvements in filming techniques and action.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Digital Copy code in box. Aug. 1 2014
By Turismo
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Great movie & better than the original version. Only gets 2 stars because there was no code for the Digital Copy in the box. Movie industry: wake up, if you don't want piracy then don't piss off people who actually buy your stuff! I emailed them, 2 weeks later no reply, lame.

By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It is rare I do a review on a movie this soon after being on DVD but,alas,miracles do happen and here I am.The Expendables released in August/10 stars many major and minor action stars of the present and past including Bruce Willis,Arnold Schwarzenegger,Sylvester Stallone,Jet Li,Dolph Lundgren,Steve Austin,Mickey Rourke,Eric Roberts,Jason Statham,Terry Crews and Randy Couture.I was disappointed in this film because with all these actors I had very high expectations;maybe too high. Stallone's direction I thought was acceptable,as was the plot.
The story which is as see through as silk stockings,starts with a hostage taking on a ship off of Africa(some might argue Mr Stallone is keeped it direct,but simple).Stallone leads a mercenary team to the rescue and does it with quick dispatch.However team member Gunner played by Lundgren(doing his fave psycho-soldier routine from Universal Soldier)goes a little over the top when he wants to hang one of the pirate hostage takers.He's stopped and is summarily kicked off the team for being untrustworthy.
Back home team leader Barney(Stallone) is summoned to a meeting with a Mr.Church(Willis)in a....where else?..church.At the same time he has invited an old rival of Barney's called Trent(Schwarzenegger)to outbid Barney,if he's so inclined,for the job.The job is to go to an imaginary island called Vilena in the Gulf of Mexico to overthrow the dictator there.Trent tells Church to give the job to Barney as he "likes to play in the jungle"(referencing his Rambo days)and walks out.Church asks Barney what Trent's problem is and he replies"He wants to be President"(referencing his current political life).
Barney and a small reconnaissance team suss out the island and barely escape with their lives.
