I went to see The Expendables this weekend. For those that know nothing about it, it stars almost all the action heroes from the 80 and 90’s (Stallone, Rourke, Schwarzenegger, Lundgren & Willis)and some of the more recent ones also ( Statham, Li, Austin & Couture). It also stars another throwback to the 90s in the hot as hell Charisma Carpenter, hard to believe she is now 40!!!
Anyway, the gist of the movie is that Stallone and his boys must go free the fictional island of Vilena from its tyrannical ruler and his American backer. And boy do they do it in style!!!
The action is relentless. Arms are chopped off, heads blows off, chests sliced open and buildings explode left right and centre. ‘In short, this is the greatest action movie ever!! Van Damme, Seagal and Kurt Russell passed on it and they must now be looking enviously at the box office reception. It would have been their biggest movie in years. Seagal may yet redeem himself in Machete, we will have to wait and see..
Anyway, if you get a chance, go see it on the big screen.
