A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
Nothing really fancy in this low brow action film. A group of veteran mercenaries are hired by the CIA to murder a general in a small Latin American island nation. The island was taken over by a former CIA spook who grows cocaine. The general's daughter is against them and aids "The Expendables" as they try to regain the island. No plot twists. Good mix of humor and action. Lots of killing and blowing things up.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.
Shame on all these actors who participated in this abomination.That the movie sucks is one thing... (Have a look at all one star ratings and see what's common in all of them. Well, I agree.) That you think you can condone the movie content because it's CIA cracking down on some Latin ""dictator" and to think this joke can still work at this age, where you have your whistle-blowers confessing stuff to do even more bad deeds but confessing anyway, to think this horse manure would pass undetected... is such an insult.Have some respect for the world history before you venture into mindless, psychopathic, machismo buffoonery whitewashed with some perverted notion of heroism! The old Hollywood vomit, regurgitated once again into unsuspecting, innocent minds? Between the sheets, maybe. But not any longer. Go back to sucking oligarchs' balls and this time keep quiet already. Geez.
complete piece of trash, I'm unable to watch more than 3 minutes to this kind of nonsense free violence with fairy Tale heroes, who the hell in this world likes to watch these "new" artificially bad guys movies, i could get it sub eighty's, but nowadays its annoying, no story, no roles, free non stop violence, fireworks and bad hi-tech effects. Man this is so far from reality that even hurts to think someone write this stuff to make a movie.
I was super hyped when this film came out years ago. It had every action star imaginable all together fighting crime and kicking ass. When it came out I thought it was one of the most awesome films I had ever seen. However as the years went on, it simply isn't that good. The directing is really annoying and suffers from BS quick-cut editing where you cant see a single thing that's going on. We know people like Statham, Stallone, Lundgren, and Stone Cold Steve Austin can fight, so why can't we see it? The plot is really boring and you wish that maybe they would've done something a lot more interesting than a generic plot ripped from Commando or Rambo. When I first saw the film in theaters, I actually really liked the plot because it was an exact homage to 80's action film plots, but after rewatching it, I definitely think something different should've been done here. I meant the film is not bad, but it is not great anymore. If there is one thing the film excels on, it's the gore. The gore in this film is so over-the-top that it's amazing...that is, when it isn't CGI. The only thing truly worth noting is the actors. It is AWESOME to see them interacting together on screen like they do in this film. Stallone, Statham, Lundgren, Schwarzenneger, Willis, Li, Austin, and Crews are all incredible with their witty dialog and exchanges, and even cooler with their big guns and fight scenes. That's what the film is all about, I guess.
