Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As a whole, the movie, whose title dimly evokes "They Were Expendable," a 1945 John Ford combat picture starring John Wayne and Robert Montgomery, might more aptly be described as Bad Kurosawa, Bad Peckinpah or Bad Leone.
Rotten: It's not the age of the actors that makes The Expendables expendable. It's the stale storytelling.
Fresh: What you will find is both familiar in its contours and unique in its casting.
Rotten: I's a bit like a trip to the gym on a flat tire.
Great movie but why wait a year
Great movie but why wait a year to relese the extended cut. The action in this movie is great. I just wish they released this version last year
give us the iTunes extras, this is a great movie, but i like the extras, add the extras, then I'll buy this.
Probably funner to make than watch
I enjoy a good bromance as much as the next guy, but the director could have allowed for more playful-believable banter amongst them. Great to see Dolph back in action.
