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.
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.
BEST TO RENT!
Its hard not to smile while watching this movie.
