Written and directed by Sylvester Stallone, The Expendables is a story about a group of aging mercenaries called in to fight a bunch of South American bad guys. That’s all I remember about the movie itself.
How many stars does it take to get people to pay money to watch a really bad movie with an asinine plot, lots of gore, and completely unrealistic heroes and action scenes?
It takes a lot of them:
- Sylvester Stallone
- Mickey Rourke
- Jet Li
- Jason Statham
- Terry Crews
- Dolph Lundgren
and not to forget: A sitting governor of a U.S. State:
putting in a cameo appearance, which is probably the highlight of the movie. It’s actually clever.
I saw this movie and I have forgotten it already. Don’t bother.
Rating: zero stars
