When news of Sylvester Stallone's latest movie 'The Expendables' started to surface, it almost sounded like the most elaborate joke ever.

With each casting announcement, the movie became more unbelievable. Stallone. Jason Statham. Jet Li. Dolph Lundgren. Cameos by Arnold and Bruce. Wrestlers, UFC Fighters -- even throw in Eric Roberts for good measure. All in a movie about a covert-ops special forces team sent on a suicide mission in South America. There was simply too much action-star testosterone for one movie; just watching the trailer felt like bench-pressing a motorcycle.
