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. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Aug 13, 2010

Rotten: It's not the age of the actors that makes The Expendables expendable. It's the stale storytelling. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 13, 2010

Fresh: What you will find is both familiar in its contours and unique in its casting. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Aug 13, 2010

Rotten: I's a bit like a trip to the gym on a flat tire. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Aug 13, 2010

Better to Rent

Hey all I just wanted to say that the action scenes were AWESOME but the overall epicness that we expected from Li, Stalone and all those other actors isn't there in the movie. I just gotta say that the plot was a little off but the chase scenes, the shoot outs were all spectacular so I want to see if there will be another movie with all them in it so that they can try again.
