Male Speaker: We are the shadows and they the smoke in your eyes.
Female Speaker:We've been waiting a long time for this one, writer, director, star Sylvester Stallone throw back to the glory days of 80's action films the Expendable takes some of the most recognizable He-man of that era and combines them with their modern day counterparts. Jason Statham, Jet li, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Coutoure are just some of the gun todding, bone smashing, bunker busting talent who joins life for this blood soaked adventure.
The plots, who needs a plot for this kind of movie, its a fight to stay, Stallone plays the leader of the ruthless mercenaries of the title and team who takes on the most dangerous machines if the price is right which of course means a return to the healthy young days of bad quips and mindless violence complete with cartoony action, Stallone and Statham make a fine central pairing trading gags and insults like two buddies and lending a real sense of history to the team.
The other expendables kill with the best of them and drop one liners with mischievous twinkles in their eyes even if they're mostly relegated to supporting character status. There are a couple of twists along the way involving the identity of the enemy, the loyalties of the team members themselves and more, but if you have ever watched 80's action classic, you'll see them coming on my laugh. As for the much hyped inclusion of the governator and Bruce Willis the roles are little more than cameos.
And having waited more than 20 years to see these three action legends tear up the screen together the result is something of an anti-climax. Even if it does it end with a great gag at the expense of Arnold. Unfortunately that's the thrust of the over all film. Stallone seems to have missed as many opportunities as he has nailed, still maybe he is saving some ammunition for the sequel, lets hope that follow that happens so that the expendables can once again set the 0:00:40 back 20 years.
