  • So why oh why is The Expendables such a limp-dick bust? Because Stallone forgets to include non-spazzy direction, a coherent plot, dialogue that actors can speak without cringing, stunts that don't fizzle, blood that isn't digital and an animating spirit that might convince us to give a damn. show more

  • And give credit to Stallone: He just leaves the camera on Rourke, in the tightest of close-ups, cutting only once, to himself, for a one-second reaction shot, but keeping the focus on his actor. A great actor. show more

  • Sadistic mess of a movie. show more

    The "bad guys" in the movie The Expendables seem to be wearing the US Army patch of the First Signal Brigade with whom I served with in Vietnam????
