The Expendables is a movie directed by Sylvester Stallone that tells the story of a group of renegades that make the job out of the eyes of the law. Their latest job is to overthrow an South American dictator but without knowing that there's more behind all this. This film full of action and adventure is like a tribute to all those 80's and 90's action movies, first because all the representatives of those movies appear here (Bruce Willis, Sylsvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger). The story is predictable and the plot is a little weak. The cast is interesting, formed by actors (Stallone, Li, Statham, Lundgren, Rourke) and wrestlers (Austin and Couture) everyone doing the best they can and with the special appearances of Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger parodying themselves the movie is quite enjoyable. In conclusion, you most take The Expewndables for what it is, a movie which only purpose is to entertain the viewer and I think it achieve it pretty well.
