Default Saw The expendables!!

Anyone else seen it, so we can talk about how fucking awesome it was. :Mrgreen:

Seriously, i'm a sucker to Overkill Action films; All those stars;

Stallone / Statham / Jet Li / Ralph; Literally every character you see you think, "Omg, that guys in ----"

Great story line, Kick-Ass Action scenes; And a great ratio of the two.

Definitely a MUST-SEE!!

:mrgeen:

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

I was fairly impressed.

With the sheer number of stars both in main roles and cameos, I figured it was destined to be either pleasantly amusing or slightly amusingly horrendous. I'd say it fell out into the former.

I saw it last night, and loved it. I don't know about the story being any good, but that's besides the point. When you take the old 80's formula of wise cracks and big explosions, add some of the stars of those original films, and a few of the more modern action stars, it's gonna be a winner.

Man, ever since i just keep replaying that scene with Jason Stathem literally 'fucking up' those people at the court, every punch swung you could hear bones crushing and thuds of them hitting the floor... Scene ended badly, thought him stabbing the ball was lame.. but dude... I love fight scenes like that.

Phwoarrrrrrrrrrrrr

I was a bit disappointed by the Expendables, mainly because I had my hopes up that it would be the best action movie of all time. Unfortunately, it wasn't (John Rambo is), but it's still one hell of a movie. Simply having so many badass actors in one place and packing the movie with endless gunfights, explosions and all is perfectly fine with me.

for a total of five minutes Cain...literally Bruce Willis and Arnold were in the movie for one scene...I was depressed about that part. don't add an actor to the poster if he isn't even part of the main character role
