The Twenty-First Century

The Expendables [2010]

Epic failure. You’d think that with a cast like that, nothing could go wrong. Think again. Let me tell you what went wrong here: there’s not enough action scenes, the story is mediocre at best, and I’ve never seen a dialogue as cheesy as this one (What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? really?). But lets face it: fans of the genre will probably enjoy it. But hey even the fans deserve something better than this. Sylvester Stallone missed a huge opportunity in my opinion (this could have easily been the action movie of the decade). The cast is badass I admit, but even with a cast like that you’d expect to see something huge. Too bad. Oh and does the name Lee Christmas sound tough to you? Didn’t think so.

  1. OHH YEAH!! i heard abt tha movie and all the fuss around it so i went to watch it since ive always been a Stallone fan and i actually know what to expect frim his movies:P so here goes: cheesy dialogue, medicore story, amazing muscle cast, gr8 action sequences, mikey rourke wins it with his dialogue scene abt a girl he should have saved during the Viet war..:P but who cares right since ur going to watch a Sly movie! and guess what? i loved every minute of it! sure i expected something more interesting in terms of story but its definetly rewatchable!

    P.S: jason statham kicks ass!

    • True! Im not much of a fan, but i do enjoy a silly action movie every once in a while. The expendables was totally lame!!!
