Default The Expendables

Ok, so you have to go into this movie knowing what it really is. It is a big, old, cheesy, throwback to what I grew up on, action movie. The dialogue is silly in places and it's rather predictable. BUT, I enjoyed the heck out of it. The theater was packed on a Sunday afternoon and we all laughed at the right places. I recommend going to see it, just keep in mind that it is what it is and it's not trying to be anything other than a fun movie.

I agree 100%: it's nothing but a good-old-fashioned shoot 'em up. But it's one heck of a good-old-fashioned shoot 'em up!

Wen to see this Saturday afternoon with some friends & we absolutely loved it. Awesome fight scenes, great action & hilarious interaction between the characters.

My 2 favorite bits: Jet Li explaining to Sly why he needs a bigger cut & Terry Crewes w/ his gf!

Jet Li was my favorite character, he just kept cracking me up. I don't want to start reciting some of his lines here because I don't want to ruin it for anyone else but he killed me.

No Joke! It made my top 10 just because of what it was and how well they done it. It was good to see a good old shootem up with no stupid sneeky twist. i like a good twist sometimes but nowadays it seems like every movie has one. This made me feel like I felt the first time I saw Rambo.

Awesome movie!!!!!
