a senseless film... totally wasted time

If mindless, bloody, hardcore action with tough guys as the heroes is your fetish, then go see this movie! This is exactly what I hoped for.

It's no secret that I love an old action movie...and by old I mean from when I was a kid. The 80s made a huge impact on my taste in movies, and I still love an over the top action romp as much as the next guy that grew up on them.

The Expendables are an above average homage to the 80s and 90s in action, and when they collect an ensemble of the same stars you grew up watching, well...it has to be good...right?

The Expendables are fun...no doubt about that. The action is over the top, the clips seem to be like the Tardis (bigger on the inside for those of you that don't watch Doctor Who), and both bad guy and hero can take an insane amount of beating before falling.

...and as usual in these kinds of movies, the story takes a backseat to the action. It's barely a framework there to hang the action on. It doesn't hurt the enjoyment all that much, but I tend to want more out of my action movies these days.

The Expendables are an enjoyable reunion of sorts and serves you well for an evening of action.
