The Expendables delivered on exactly on what I was expecting. If you watched this movie for anything other than the who’s who of Hollywood Action movies cast, and the often dry humour, then you are going to be disappointed.
No-one claims that this is Oscar winning material, but perhaps it should be. Sometimes you want to watch something that doesn’t make you think too hard, but also doesn’t leave you feeling like you just sacrificed 2 hours of your life that you are never getting back.
The down side is that some of the novelty has worn off, and we are starting to see the true extent of Sylvester Stallone’s Facebook Friends list, but he does still manage to surprise us, with Mel Gibson as the “Bad Guy” and a surprisingly funny Antonio Banderas.
If you enjoyed the first 2 you will like this one. If you have not seen the first two then you will probably enjoy this one even more as the extent of big names in this cast may still come as a surprise with some unexpected cameos.
