After all the hype that even I fell into, let me just give it to you plainly. This movie sucked. The script is baffling; just mind blowingly terrible to be quite honest, but it had a few great lines (the end of the Schwarzenegger scene). The action has the now very popular shaky cam that everyone seems to hate, and extreme close ups. It was hard to tell what was going on. With a cast like this, I was expecting a brilliant action movie, but what I got was another Dolph Lundgren failure.

Oh, how I wanted to love this. When I first saw the trailer, I immediately went onto eBay, purchased a Cabbage Patch KId, and upon its arrival, tore the head off in a frenzied fit of unadulterated glee. What could be more awesome than a movie that took all of my childhood action movie heroes and packaged them in one epic jack-in-the-box? Unfortunately, a few turns of the crank and a couple out-of-tune clunks later, the only thing that popped out was a besotted, ass-fondling Mickey Rourke.

This movie is literally the cheesy action-movies from the 80's except it's shot and directed with actual competence. The action scenes are brutally intense, over-the-top and awesome, all the characters are macho tough-guys beyond the realm of sanity while the story itself is just as bad and cliche as any 80's flick you can think of. Overall, if you just want to see shit explode, guns blaze and see a lot of great action stars in one movie then this is a must see.

For a film featuring so many personalities it has a strange lack of personality itself. That the characters are flat and the dialogue bland isn't a huge problem in a movie like this, but that the action scenes are unimaginative and been-there-done-that is. Ironic that Rocky 6 and Rambo 4 were both released to jeers and turned out awesome, while this one was released to going on two years of absurd hype and turned out mediocre.

Dear Mr. Stallone, while I appreciated what you were trying to do I have some ideas for improving the sequel. No spazzy, confusing fight scenes, better one-liners, and action scenes like: a chainsaw fight in an underwater science lab, a freefight tournament inside a volcano, a shootout on an aircraft carrier sliding down an exploding Mt. Everest, Crews fighting a grizzly bear bare-handed, the finale inside the I.S.S. with the film's surprise villain Michael Dudikoff. Sounds better, right?

Rarely has an English language film had so many people in it that cannot speak English! If you can understand a single word Sly, Lundgren, Li or Rourke manage to mumble through their steroid riddled lips then you deserve a medal. I doubt any of this matters however, as in true 80's action style "The Expendables" has literally no plot, or character development at all, so you won't be missing anything important. Loved the scene with Sly, Arnie & Brucie though... 50 right there. Statham is awful!

What a disappointment! After having hyped this movie since it was first announced, it had a lot to live up to - and it didn't. The worst part is the action. It is filmed way too close to the actors and with a combination of shaky cam and weird close-ups. You never have a clue of what is going on. On the positive side is the impressive physique from Sly, another good performance from Statham and the epic scene with Sly, Bruce and Arnie - The scene is not good, but it is awesome.

Plotwise this film....no wait, let's not go there. This film features: Lots and lots of knives and big explosions, amusing cameos by Willis and Arnold Scwarzenegger, Terry Crews wielding the biggest piece of machine gun since ol' Painless, a Li vs. Lundgreen fight and Sly (Rambo?) leading a team of mercenaries whose masterplan is to infiltrate an island...only to blow it up. This is an action movie like my mother used to make 'em. Come to think of it: It does actually feature a "Yo' Mamma" joke.

I was really looking forward to seeing this, but to put it plainly, it sucked. It wasn't as funny as it should've been and the cast didn't really seem like they were into it. The action is badly shot and incoherant, the music was lame, the blood 'n' gore was all phoney CGI (if I remember correctly, this was originally going to be PG-13 which would explain the silly looking violence), and I just didn't have much fun. Lundgren's scenes were amusing but he didn't have much screen time.

Feels like a 'dad rock' action film not just because of the soundtrack choices. I don't really know what I was expecting, but most things would have been better than this soulless montage of terrible CGI gore effects. No one has mentioned the disturbing fact that Stallone looks almost exactly like David Gest.

The scripts is a mess, and most actors hardly get enough screen time. Even though they're likable, I was never taken aback by them. Gratuitous action makes it moderately enjoyable, but the film ultimately fails to build upon its exciting opening. I don't know what's funnier: Stallone's dried up face or Jet Li riding a Harley Davidson...

See what you did, Expendables? You made Mickey Rourke cry. For as many muscles grace the screen, it's strangely forgettable. It takes its time and tries to make us care which is a mistake for a movie about antique punching bags wielding automatic weapons.

The Expendables strives to be the lowest common denominator of all of the memorable action films of the 80s. An inexcusably flimsy script that seems written on the spot in most scenes to accommodate the ridiculous roster of B-list action stars, most of whom share barely one scene. Jet Li's English seems to have gotten worse, Lundgren acted drunk in every scene, Steve Austin seemed ready to turn into a tree at any moment. While Stantham remains a force of raw awesome, saving each scene he's in.

Surprisingly boring for what's supposed to be the action movie to end all action movies. Everyone except Statham and Lundgren looked positively awkward to be in this movie with awkward line delivery and obvious scripted sequences, with notable cases Schwarzenegger, Willis, Li and Austin being the worst offenders. Some decent action sequences (Lundgren VS Li, Plane Takeoff) but all in all it's a boring, poorly paced, poorly written excuse for a cast of this calibre. For shame Stallone.

I was expecting an over the top, star-filled, explosion studded action extravaganza, but all I got was a run-of-the-mill blockbuster. The script was horrendous. Now I wasn't expecting some sort of groundbreaking screenplay, but c'mon. It was just bad. All the lines were terribly awkward, and I can't understand a word coming out of half of these meatheads' mouths. There are a few decent action sequences thrown in there, but The Expendables fell short everywhere else. Disappointing.

Wow, now THAT was embarrasing to watch. (vomit) When you pass certain age it is better to start babysitting your grand-grand-children, instead of showing off, like we're still kids in the 80s. The scene between Bruce, Arnold and Stallone was particularly pathetic. Even the direction and the editing of the action was absolutely incompetent and annoying.

There's some really great action in here. This is the movie to see for knives, guns, and explosions. Unfortunately, the film doesn't hit its dramatic notes as well, and it suffers from a bad case of invincible protagonist syndrome. It still manages to be a fun ride, though, because it doesn't take itself that seriously.

Where 'Expendables' should be an entertaining mash of senior and junior action stars in a fun storyline, Stallone botches the writing and directing immensely and does everything wrong that he possibly could have. The characters have no development, the plot is totally nonsensical, and the hand-me-down action sequences are saddled with poor CGI. Much of the film feels pasted together at the last minute, the shots are almost entirely in close-up, and the dialogue will make you gag. Mission: fail.

A very fun action movie. The main guys were all good except Randy Couture (give me The Rock) and the action scenes were a good mix of styles. The plot is pretty by-the-numbers and this isn't any type of movie that is going to blow your mind, but it's not a bad way to spend 2 hours of your life.

Why anyone would want a plot beyond serviceable in a movie like this baffles me. There are minor annoyances (Li, for one... kidding - but, really, he's not very good), the worst offender being Lundgren who looks the part but is trapped in campy overdrive. Not that camp has to be a bad thing, mind you. The movie's heart is the goofy give-and-take between Statham (cool incarnate) and Stallone (endlessly likeable). Roberts is fun, too, and the action is excessive without becoming overly disgusting.

Avoided this for a long time because it could only be disappointing for me. And it was. But I still enjoyed parts of it. Obviously it needed more Arnold, like every movie.

Ugly, charmless money grab from Sly, who has just about squandered the goodwill earned with his surprisingly satisfying and sweet conclusion to his Rocky series. Did you know his character's name was Barney? I didn't. Or that Jet Li was billed third from the top for delivering his lines in a manner that made Natalie Portman's performances in the "Star Wars" prequels look positively excitable? Kudos to real life spouse abuser Steve Austin for decking that chick. Yeah bro, nice one DOOD.

Tattoos make for an uncannily accurate motif in this film, as the same thing evidently happens to both tattoos and myopic, egotistical action stars as they age. Enlisting stars from 90s action films, Hong Kong martial arts pics, the NFL, the WWE, and MMA in a cliché-redolent banana republic siege plot could have made the perfect satire of American bloodlust focused through Hollywood. Instead, I've never in my life seen so many things explode or fire out of a gun and cared so little.

Who cares what the plot is. If you seriously watched this film with any sort of expectations of a decent script you need to get your head checked. Where this film truly misses is in the editing. With some very talented martial artists (Li, Coture, and even Lundgren was a two time European Karate Champion, and to a lesser extent Statham) mixed with brawlers like Austin and Sly this should have been wide angle minimum cut scenes. Instead we are treated with incomprehensible non stop quick cuts.

The action shows none of the dynamism of Rambo IV, and it takes itself way too seriously. What's the point of assembling a multigenerational all-star cast without having any real fun? It's neither a celebration or affirmation of genre or talent, and it only starts to come alive in the explosion packed finale at Garza's compound. Until that point, it's just a glorified DTV actioner with a king sized budget, and Sly's direction is purely functional.

A strange mixture between a 'lost movie' accidentally recovered from the 80s and a cash-out reunion of has-been action stars that should know better. Sly's failure to acknowledge time is wonderfully predominant, meaning that this movie is exactly as plotless and stupid as anything you'd expect from the decade when he was king. Never reaching those wonderfully explicitly violent heights of 'Rambo', this should still win the Oscar for best movie in the history of the world.

Quite ok for an hommage to 80s action movies. It was entertaining and funny. Of course, with so many great action stars in the cast there is not so much room for character development, but then: Who expected that? The action scenes are decent, the plot is not better or worse than any other of the 80's or today's action movies. What I really disliked was the camera work because it always was much too close to the actors, it felt crowded. You'll get entertained if you know what to expect.

I like my fair share of dumb, straight to the point, action flicks, I really do. This kind of film does pay homage to old action heroes and films in general.

I like some of their films, but the acting is so average at best, it's premise is pretty generic and I'm so hit and miss with cheesy one liners, but these ones are too cringe for me to enjoy.

I'm unashamedly a fan of brainless action films, but was unfortunately a touch disappointed with this effort. I was perhaps hoping for this to be a spiritual successor to Commando (a real guilty pleasure for me), but felt that Stallone's own Rambo (2008), and the ludricrous Taken filled that role more competently. This is not to say that this is entirely without a smattering of fun; however, the promise lent by the cast doesn't really come to fruition, and overall the film feels a tad clumsy.

As expected, you'll quickly find that you prefer your preconceived notion of this movie to how it turned out. Sly is too busy resting on his laurels with a gimmicky cast to remember to include energetic or interesting direction, dialogue that isn't stiffer than wood, characters with color or chemistry, blood that isn't digital or an enlivening spirit that might've recapture the thrill of the movies he's trying to remind us of.

Nearly ten years on--and what a relentlessly boring and ugly movie this still is, all browns and greys and not a remotely original line to be heard. Simultaneously too expensive and too incompetent to recapture the joy of 80s B-movies, 'The Expendables' has very little that's at all likeable, from the charmlessness of its veiny, botoxed performers to its artless action scenes. The most disappointing thing is the Stallone script credit; difficult to imagine that the same man wrote 'Rocky'.

The dialogue was awful, for the most part. The attempts at character development and emotional resonance just didn't work. I didn't find any of the action too impressive either. So, rather disappointing overall. I didn't hate it, but, apart from some cool action stars being together, there was nothing good about it.

The Expendables starts of well, but only goes downhill afterwards. The opening scene is one of brilliance, but after that, it loses steam quickly. The writing stops being clever, the action stops being entertaining, and there is little to hold your interest up until the final 20 minutes, when the film starts to pick back up again. This can't save it though, because there's just too much downtime to make it a worthwhile watch.

Overall, the movie is a good entertainement. Unfortunately, it tries to have a "complex" plot when it is not needed, this makes the first hour useless. The mercenary blues, here played by Mickey Rourke does not serves the plot at all. But, the last part is clearly what this film claims to be: a big action movie with total destruction and rampage.

W/ its Kill-Bad-Guys-Rescue-Girl plotline & 1-word characterizations (Leader Guy, Crazy Guy, Chinese Guy, etc) this throwback to 80's meathead-&-potatoes action flix is a CGI-bloodied reminder of why they disappeared. Every problem's solved w/ fists& guns since a character using his wits 4 even half a second might require the writer 2 think deeply for half a second. Ditto the eye-rollingly bad humor that dies only after undercutting the tension. Still, no one can accuse this of false advertising
