The Expendables was absolutely f*cking terrible.

The movie was supposed to be (or should have been) an homage to the over-the-top, and ridiculous, action movies.... yet had few moments that were truly epic or extraordinary.

It wasn't crazy enough to be good-cheesy, and quite frankly the action sequences were rather underwhelming.

Don't waste $10 on it... trust me.

it's smart for sly and crew to make this right now to capitalize both on the folks who legitimately love those types of movies AND the wave of ironic nostalgia that will lead to a bunch of wusses/hipsters/whatever you want to call them seeing the movie.

i was at a party last night where there were many of those types around and they were talking about it with their usual platitudes of "this will be the most awesome/badass movie ever."

i still can't get fully behind it, but i'll watch it on dvd.

Maybe the most "entertaining" movie (not in my opinion) but certainly not the best. Sequences are too visually incoherent and vague; I don't have a problem if for some, the over-the-top violence camouflages the narrative weaknesses, however I would question your ability to critic movies if you call this movie anything but a guilty pleasure.

Movie was exactly what it was supposed to be. Long time since I felt so fulfilled after a movie experience. Turn your brain off at the door and just enjoy. 10/10 for me.

The reviews that I've read and heard so far have been all over the place. I heard some on the Opie & Anthony show that said it was really great, and read some on here that said it was trash. So, I don't know. I was planning on going to do a double feature and watch Inception/the Expendables but now that idea is scrap.

Can't wait to see it. Stallone is my favorite action star of all time and the movie has nothing but convincing action stars, this type of action movie has really been missing the last decade or so with a few exceptions.

Scott Pilgrim looks like trash. Stallone>>>>>Michael cera.

Solid flick, throwback to the old 80s action movies, cheesy as hell, cats trying throw in some emotional depth which is corny but kinda works, couple OH SHIT moments (that downwards head kick and the knife scene). Randy Couture is a terrible actor but it was pretty awesome seeing him throw Steve Austin around with Greco-Roman, Mickey Rourke is the best actor in the thing, and the others just kinda **** shit up. Can't believe Jet Li loses two fistfights though.

was real entertained but don't expect Citizen Kane. expect Soldier or Predator or Rambo.
