The Expendables


A group of highly skilled mercenaries led by Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is hired to take out the dictator of a South American island nationā€¦ but they soon learn the full picture.Ā Stallone gathered as many old-school action stars he could find (and approached many others who declined) for this adventure, a tongue-in-cheek action movie like they made ā€˜em in the 1980s. Too bad Stallone couldnā€™t bother to bring in a writer to polish the script, which has far too many lulls. Best bit: the awkward but oddly endearing reunion of three former Planet Hollywood owners.
