    A Great Action Film With Every Major Action Star In Modern Film!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this film and I was happy to see Arnold Schwarzenegger back where he belongs: In film. Sylvester Stalone looked pretty fit for a guy who is in his sixties. I liked the fact that all of the major action stars in modern film were in this movie from Jason Stathom, Bruce Willis, Terry Crews, Jet Li, and Mickey Rourke. All of these men made a great combination for a movie and I hope they get together again for another film. Hopefully, Arnold will finally be out of office by then. Overall, this movie not only had a great set of actors, but it also had great fight scenes and explosive action sequences that kept me at the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie. If they make a sequel, I am definitely seeing it.

    Decent but cliche

    Movie was really well put together as action movies go, however they have little plot and a lot of standard action sequences. I do recommend if you are at all a fan of any of these action stars.

    Likable Concept with Mixed Results

    The Expendables puts together a cast of some legendary 80's and 90's action stars. Unlike some of the better action-packed movies of the past, this film lacked a good story. With the exception of a ninety second, mid-movie scene by Mickey Rourke, which felt Academy Award quality, the movie feels similar to an old WWF script laced with explosions and gunfire. If you're looking for good story, you won't find it here. If you just want lots of action, you're in for a treat.

    Kick @$$!

    This movie is by far one of the best action movies I've seen in a while! The characters were awesome and the action sequences were pretty cool...most especially the very last one! Doesn't surprise me that it was so bad@$$, being that Sylvester Stallone directed and starred in it. He has had enough experience with action movies to know how to make a good one. If you want a movie with substance...this is not the movie for you. It has some...but not a ton. Now...if you're looking for a man movie with a lot of excellent, no holds barred, guns blazing, explosive action...this, my friend, is the movie for you! It's one of those type of movies that progresses, and there is good action thrown in gradually throughout the course of the movie, and then at the very end is the absolute best action sequence...one of the best in a movie of this particular kind that I have seen. Blew me away! If you're out for a good action thrill...this movie is most definitely worth while! Watch it! A good blue-ray worthy purchase if you ask me.
