I admit, all these guys on screen is cool (even if I'm only a real fan of Willis and sorta Sly), but that fact alone doesn't hold up as a movie. I know, "it's action, it doesn't need to have a story... or good acting... or make any sense." But still. This movie is just a waste of time, the action isn't that great, the stars aren't that fun (with the exception of Bruce's 3 minute scene.), the gore is stupidly over the top, and there is no story to be seen.

I went crazy for this movie when I first heard of it and saw all the actors and or stars on one movie. That doesn't come along too often. I do wish Bruce Willis would have had a bigger part than he did.
I really did like this movie as I am into these action packed macho movies. As said the acting is so so, but as I have watched all these guys movies I couldn't, wouldn't be disappointed by this movie.
It is a for sure keeper for me!

Mindless entertainment . . .
Joel S. Schneider | San Francisco | 10/07/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Sure this film is mindless entertainment, but sometimes that hits the spot. I found myself having a good time even though much of the dialogue and acting was awful. I did enjoy the fight scenes, which seemed bone-crunchingly real at times. For me, though, what stuck and resonated was Mickey Rourke's performance as Tool. This character ended up being kind of the yoda, the spiritual center, of the Expendables (if you can picture a yoda that looks like a super-griseled biker). At one point Rourke delivered a soulful monologue that was so powerful and filled with emotion that it was almost like he was doing ALL of the acting for the entire cast - (I really won't get that monologue out of my head for quite a while, and I really don't want to). Of course, I wish there was more of the Tool character, but he did give the film an emotional boost that was needed and I felt that after his monologue things really seemed to take off. Stallone did a good job of utilizing Rourke's talent to provide some motivation to the mayhem - not that you actually need any in this kind of movie. Eventually "The Expendables" achieves a crescendo of violence that goes on and on like a prolonged orgasm in an action lover's wet dream. This movie will be lots of fun for some but it will also be hated by many . . . so be it."
