A CIA operative hires a team of mercenaries to eliminate a Latin dictator and a renegade CIA agent.
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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

This movie has almost all the famous action movie stars but the action itself is nothing new. It is a lot of fun though just to watch these actors all come together in one movie. There are a lot of jokes back and forth and it is comical. The plot has absolutely nothing new and the genre itself is between action and comedy.
There are better action movies out there and this movie just seemed like all of these guys got together for a good time. Worth a watch just to see all the action heroes again, but not worth keeping, i'm personally not watching this the 2nd time.
In this uncut version of the smash hit action blockbuster ‘THE EXPENDABLES.’ Sylvester Stallone stars as Barney Ross, leader of The Expendables, a tight-knit team of skilled combat vets turned mercenaries. Hired by a powerful covert operator, the team jets off to a small South American country to overthrow a ruthless dictator.
Once there, they find themselves caught in a deadly web of deceit and betrayal. Using every weapon at their disposal, they set out to save the innocent and punish the guilty in this blistering action-packed thriller.

No sex or nudity, some F-bombs from Willis. Warning: some violence to women including water-boarding. There is a scene where Willis (CIA), Stallone and Arnold are all in a church. Willis is hiring to do a job. Arnold backs out and leaves at which point Willis asks, "What is his F#$%ing problem?" Stallone replies, "He wants to be president." If you didn't get enough of Stallone-Lundgren fighting each other in Rocky IV, they are at it again.
