Silvester Stallone , Jet Li , Jason Statham , Terry Crews , Micky Rourke , Dolph Lundgren , Steve Austin , Randy Coutour
- It's basically an homage to old 80's action movies hero's the like of " Schwarzenegger , Stallone , and lundgren ", I loved a lot of the scenes in this movies. It's been written with love and passion. It's really a good tribute to those 80's action movies, and it slaps you on the face with the nostalgia factor to those days.
- The action in this movie is surprisingly very accurate. I was amazed by the martial arts moves done by the amazing Randy Coutour and Jet Li, you can feel every crack or kick being a huge fan of MMA the movie was eye candy to me.
- The reunion of the 80's most famous action stars, Stallone , Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis it's simply a laugh out loud scene, you can sense that they are a bunch of old friends making fun of each other while the camera happens to be rolling. It really shows you the core of this movie which is mindless fun.
- It's a sad shame to see a lot of rising and famous action stars assembled in one movie just to have a two or 3 lines without any connection between the viewer and the characters, by the end of the movie I couldn't remember a name of even one character
- The action as I mentioned above is amazing, but what really put me off was the fake blood and fire, it was all made by CGI which is a real shame, cause after a couple of fight scenes it becomes noticable and annoying
- I expected this movie to be a summer blockbuster, I was wrong, the quality of the movie is straight to DVD at best the lines are weak, and you feel it's acting except for Micky Rourkes scene its pure awesome.
- Towards the climax of this movie a couple of things nagged me, the lack of energy in the story it's simple 2 lines someone is killed another 1 line and another bad guy is killed, it lost it's pacing quite shockingly and went into action mode, and the accuracy I mentioned above went straight to hell towards the end of the movie .
This movie is about fun, pure mindless fun the kind made die hard or predator such huge successes in the 80's, it was a blast watching all those huge stars in one movie and the one liners are back which something sorely missed in todays action movies, it will hit hard if your nostalgic about those stars and you will enjoy it to the fullest just don't expect a good story.
The Expendables will hit kuwait 1st day of Eid , and I can assure you there's nothing to be cut from the movie it's totally clean ( unless Cinescape went on the fritz again )
The Expendables 2 will be hitting around 2012 hopefully with Steven Segal and Jean Claude Van Damme as rumored.
