All Star Action: The Expendables


It has been long since I've seen an action packed movie and an all star cast, and thankfully, THE EXPENDABLES made it all possible.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is the leader of the "Expendables", a group of mercenaries, hired by a "Mr. Church" (Bruce Willis) to overthrow a dictator of Vilena, a small South American Island. His highly formidable team consists of Yin Yang (Jet Li), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), Toll Road (Randy Couture), (Dolph Lundgren). As Ross and Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) went to see the said island, they met Sandra (Giselle Itie) , a local who promised never to leave her country even if it is already in peril.

A job that is merely impossible to succeed at, Ross and his team decides to go back and save whatever that's left there. Want some no-BS action movie that's worth your cinema money? The Expendables screens August 13, 2010, Friday.

Like I always say in my reviews, I am never a fan of guns and all that glory. But since it IS Sylvester Stallone and his movie comeback, this I ought to see. Maybe because of the thought that I've only known him as Rambo and well, that's it. I was intrigued because here he is again, doing a movie with a power cast. And I was never disappointed.

The movie did not have any lapses. But of course, its not always about the action, but it makes you wanna leap then and there. Plus the fight scenes are awesome. The explosions were massive and the storyline isn't cheesy nor emotionless.

Five stars for this must-see movie. Super thanks to Azrael and Ms. Sharon Yu of SM Cinemas for the premiere night invites! :)
