Known Trivia

  • Jean-Claude Van Damme was offered a role, but he turned it down claiming that there was no substance in the character. Rumor has it that Dolph Lundgren replaced him but actually the part of Scandinavian Gunnar Jensen was written by Sylvester Stallone with Lundgren in mind.
  • Wesley Snipes was offered the role of Hale Ceasar but couldn’t accept because, due to his tax problems, he wasn’t allowed to leave the United States without the court’s approval. The role was taken by Forest Whitaker and rewritten for Whitaker, but he was forced to leave the film due to a scheduling conflict. The role was then offered to rapper 50 Cent who turned the role down to focus on his music career. After a few days, Sylvester Stallone decided to cast former NFL player Terry Crews in the part.
  • Ben Kingsley, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino were considered for the role of Munroe.
  • Scott Adkins was offered the role of Dan Paine.
  • Jeffrey L. Kimball was also director of photography on Sylvester Stallone’s The Specialist, but this is the first time he has worked with Stallone as a director.
  • Jason Statham starred in Death Race, a remake of Death Race 2000 which featured a young Sylvester Stallone in one of his first starring roles.
  • Originally, Jet Li’s character’s name was listed as Kong Kao.
  • Steven Seagal was asked to play a cameo but turned it down due to negative connections with producer Avi Lerner.
  • West Coast Customs Street Customs have built 3 customized 1955 Ford F100s for the film. One was built for a crash scene, the second for green-screen, and the third for Stallone to keep.
  • Dolph Lundgren described the film as “an old-school, kick-ass action movie where people are fighting with knives and shooting at each other.”

Goofs: Revealing mistakes: When Christmas is videoing the island, he doesn't turn the camera "ON"; then he leaves the lens on "MF" i.e, no Auto Focus, so no focused video was possible.

Plot: A team of mercenaries is given the assignment to take out a corrupt military leader and a rogue CIA operative on a Latin American island. Full summary »  »

Story: Barney Ross leads the "Expendables", a band of highly skilled mercenaries including knife enthusiast Lee Christmas, martial arts expert Yin Yang, heavy weapons specialist Hale Caesar, demolitionist Toll Road and loose-cannon sniper Gunner Jensen. When the group is commissioned by the mysterious Mr. Church to assassinate the merciless dictator of a small South American island, Barney and Lee head to the remote locale to scout out their opposition. Once there, they meet with local rebel Sandra and discover the true nature of the conflict engulfing the city. When they escape the island and Sandra stays behind, Ross must choose to either walk away and save his own life – or attempt a suicidal rescue mission that might just save his soul.Written by The Massie Twins

    I laugh at many of the hate comments as what the hell did they expect?a romantic comedy? award winning performances? deep dialogues? Freudiancomplex character study?

    common give me a break!!! from the beginning you should know this isall about guns,explosives and oneliners from start to finish and homageto silly 80's action flicks.

    and this is simply exactly what you get.

    while i will never understand what most woman think so great about sexand the city( fashion? shoes? what the hell?)

    so this is for men/boys who will be thrilled to see their old heroesfrom back in the days once more on screen kicking everybody's ass! (ohand no i also like deep intellectual movies, its all aboutexpectations)

    The expectation for this film is obviously very high with one of thebest action hero line ups (if not the best) in cinematic history. So Iwent into this film with a little trepidation and a lot ofanticipation. I can honestly say that I was not disappointed. This wasa high octane, unbelievably explosive, funny, blood thirsty, properaction movie! This film would not have been out of place in the 80s,but manages to fit into the market of today's cinematic actionexperience. It is easily much more graphic and gory than most modernday action films, but this adds to the film and creates a degree ofrealism. Let's face it; if you go around killing people it isn't goingto be pretty! This film did what it needed to do, it wasn't afraid tocontain blood, guts and violence for the sake of an age restriction butalso wasn't overly ridiculous. After all most of the people who willwatch this film grew up watching the classic action films of the 80sand 90s and are old enough for a bit of gore.

    The plot is not that original, but it doesn't need to be, nor was itexpected to be. The cast, goes without saying, was fantastic. Whatcould have been a disaster of conflicting egos ended up being abelievable team of mercenaries where banter is rife and keeping eachother alive is their number one priority. Stallone can give himself abig pat on the back for getting so many iconic actors onto the screentogether and actually making it work. Though the much hyped cameo oftwo particular people was short lived, it was hilarious and I think agreat moment in cinema.

    This was a great film that keeps you glued to your seat, constantlymakes you gasp and laugh out loud and leaves you pumping withadrenaline. It was ridiculous and wonderful all at the same time, withmore bullets and bombs than Rambo and more fighting than Rocky. This isa must see film for any movie buff or action hero wannabe. It iscertainly not for the faint hearted, or for kids, but for any trueaction movie lover this is the ultimate manly film.

    Sylvester Stallone, NICE JOB!

    Tough guys. Always going on suicidal missions. Threatened by bulletsand blades. Running from explosions. Best friends waging wars. Nearlykilling each other, then going to the bar later to laugh about it.Director and star, Sylvester Stallone, gets all his best men togetherto kick as much ass as humanly possible, allowing himself a severebeating from Steve Austin. Sly took a serious neck injury. Then he goesin front of a Comic Con audience and jokes about it. A man whoseDouble-"R" franchises, Rocky and Rambo have both been highlysuccessful. But he keeps coming back for more pain and putting his bodyon the line for the sake of entertainment. There's nothing tougher thanthat!

    The Expendables is a movie that lifts you up out of your seat, pats youon the head, gives you a lollipop then smashes you in the frickin'face! With a cast like Jason Stathum, Randy Couture, Jet Li, MickeyRourke, Terry Crews, Dolph "I Must Break You" Lundgren, and cameos fromBruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, you'd think it would be onecrazy mess. Surprisingly, it's more focused then you may think. Just astraight-forward action movie with a reasonable run time that sustainsitself and never has a chance to feel dull. It doesn't try to beanything more than what it is.

    The only negative: Some of the blood and explosions looked digital.Wish it could have been just a bit more authentic. Sometimes, there wasa tad too many closeups during the fight scenes. With so many peoplefighting at the same time, sometimes I couldn't tell who was punchingwho. It didn't happen very often, but how cool would it be just for onemoment to see three simultaneous fights from a super wide master shot?Never, but I can't blame them. At least let the cameras pull back andallow the choreography to do the work.

    It feels nice to get my ass kicked by something I haven't seen yet.It's not Rambo. It's not Rocky. Nor is it another Die Hard orTerminator sequel. It's something fresh, yet feels like it came out ofthe 80's. It has the perfect blend of humor, blood, sweat, smart-asscomebacks, witty one-liners, and an overabundance of testosterone!Don't expect anything more than action, exposition, action, exposition,all with a nice cherry on top… with sprinkles… and grenades. And somereal tough guys. We all wish we could be tough guys. But no, let's justwatch'em instead.

    Straight up, I am the biggest fan of the 80s action films ever. I lovedCommando, Predator, Rambo, Rocky, Die Hard, Kickboxer etc etc etc.

    What have they done? This film had all the potential to be huge, butthey killed it with terrible writing. I can handle plot holes, in facta movie like this almost needs them. But there is no excuse for suchpoor dialogue. Where are the cool lines? I expected to come out quotinga whole heap of new one liners, instead we get stupid jokes about'wanting to be president'. The scene with Bruce Willis, Sly and Arnieshould have been awesome, instead it felt like there was some in-jokebetween them that we didn't know about. It was like being at a partylistening to 3 people you don't know talking about something you don'tunderstand! Dolph Lundgren was the best part of the film, and theydidn't give him enough to do. Why is this man not starring in A gradeblockbusters? The big rapid fire shotgun offered some humorous moments,though I don't know if this was deliberate or not. Considering this wassupposed to be about the action, it was very poorly shot. Ever sinceGladiator it seems directors are intent on making us feel part of thefight. Screw that, I don't want to be in it, I want to see what'shappening. Why bother having Jet Li, Randy Cotour and Stone Cold in afilm if all you can see of them is arms and legs flailing at closerange? Watch any old Jackie Chan flick, or even the old Stallone andSchwarzeneggar movies, the action shots are wide enough that you canactually see what they are doing.

    Very disappointing

    Bunch of sweaty blokes try to out-macho each other. The heroine istortured, then dragged through bullets, raging fires and explosions asthe whole set is blown up, yet emerges unscathed with perfect hairdo.Pointless appearance by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Missed all opportunitiesfor some decent jokes, and had to repeat an average one just in case wemissed it. Unlikeable one-dimensional characters, predictable plot, notwists and not an ounce of suspense. I found nothing to like about thisfilm, and would have walked out if I had woken up. Expendable plot,expendable dialogue, expendable characters … I could go oninterminably, like the film does.

    Really. Like many other reviewers, I had high hopes for this movie. Ithought it would be in the tradition of Space Cowboys, the old proscome back for one more shot at the bad guys. But it quickly justdegraded into typical shoot-em-up crap. Spoiler: The scene withSchwarzenegger is a complete rip-off – about a minute long, no action,has nothing to do with the rest of the movie.

    About 65% of the movie is people fighting or shooting at each other orblowing things up, and it really did just get boring. The executionwasn't even that good – fight scenes had obviously sped-up footage thatlooked like those old dinosaur movies, sound effects were bad (everypunch had the same fake thud), and the characters looked like they werein pain – not from the bullets which never touched them, but from theawful plot. Poor Jet Li complained the whole way through that he wasn'tgetting enough money – he was practically begging to be let out of hiscontract go so he could go work on something better – even acommercial.

    Mickey Rourke was good but didn't have much of a part, or any purposefor being there. Also that 250-round per minute shotgun thing, goingboom-boom-boom, was funny every time. But not worth the 9 bucks and twohours of sitting through another ridiculous re-hashing of therogue-CIA-guy and "small band of mercenaries invades and overruns tinycentral American dictatorship" story.

    I was expecting a good poignant aging-action-hero movie, or maybe acomedy, but this was just laughably bad. It's baffling how this couldbe the number 1 movie, unless a lot of people were sucked in by thehype, like I was. Also the 7-point-something rating on IMDb has got tobe inflated – rottentomatoes gives it a 42% which is more like it.

    When I heard that Seagal and Van Damme turned down roles in this film,I thought it was because they were too full of themselves. But now Irealize it's because they knew it was crap.

    After nearly a decade of disappointments Stallone shocked the movieworld by making a 6th emotionally charged Rocky, he then went on toplease fans by taking Rambo into a visceral brutally realistic warmovie, now for his hat trick Stallone gave us something old andsomething new 'The Expendables' the type of movie kids dreamed aboutthe early 90's, what if this guy & that guy and him where all in a filmtogether. A little too late? Hell no! Never has this film been moreneeded. In a land of watered down PG-13 wire work action movies realaction fans where desperate for some real old school action. (Cobra,Commando, Delta Force, Last Boy Scout..) The great thing about thisfilm is even if it didn't have the cast it still would be a greataction movie, the fact it has such a jaw dropping cast just makes itall the better. Stallone is growing as an action director, he broughtsome of his tense brutal techniques from Rambo but was smart enough togo a little old school for other scenes. Their are some very kineticaction sequences but not Parkinson's suffering cameraman techniqueslike the Bourn films.

    The main focus of the team are Stallone & Statham, they really have agood Old Dog, New Dog friendship. Lundgren (My favourite character)gets a an interesting sub plot. Unfortunately Li, Couture & Crews getpushed to the background but they do get some great scenes to shine.(Hopefully they can get some more development in the sequel.

    Roberts and his Henchman Stone Cold Steve Austin shine as the brutalvillains. Gary Danials however was really underused I was expectingsome Bennet style lines. At least he got one of the best fights of themovies.

    Of coarse the scene everyone was talking about was the Stallone,Schwarzenegger & Willis scene. Which was one of the funniest parts ofthe movie. Their attempt to put each other down while out manning eachother worked brilliantly and Willis threatening Stallone alone is worththe ticket price.

    A slight nag about the film is at the very end some CGI did crop up, inthe form of fire. After all the practical stunts throughout the movieincluding one great Truck chase I was a little disappointed not to seea stuntman in a fire suit.

    If this had just been Stallone's baby with a few unknown actors I'dgive this film 8/10 BUT the fact we get to see Stallone, Statham, Li,Lundgren, Couture, Crews, Roberts, Rourke, Danials with Willis &Schwarzenegger punch, kick, stab, mouth off and blow up each othercranks it up to a 9.5/10 for me.

    Bring on Expendables II

    This is the worst mainstream big budget movie I've ever seen.

    The claim that the film stars Schwarzenegger and Willis are totallydishonest. They appear for a minute in a very boring scene.

    The script is pathetic, there isn't a single decent one liner,theediting is awful, the acting is so bad that Gary Daniels steals everyscene he is in and how the hell Lundgren gets killed by Stallone earlyon when he's a baddie and reappears as a goodie at the end baffles ANDbores me. The claims of wall to wall action are also lies: it's overhalf an hour till we get the first action scene- a routine car chasethat is below par for the a-team- the 80's series not the recent movie.

    The fight between Lundgren and Jet Li could have been a standout butits too dark and incoherently edited.

    Pathetic. Avoid.

    When I purchased my $9 movie ticket this evening I thought I would bewatching an action version of Ocean's 11. Instead, I was subjected towhat can only be described as the sequel to "88 Minutes." This moviewas god awful. I understand that value of this movie is derived fromit's action sequences and not the storyline, but even those sucked. Cansomeone explain to me why 12 armed soldiers play quick feet around twounarmed men and just wait for them to beat them up instead of justpulling the trigger? Also, why does Stallone run like a marionette? Wasthere a reason Randy Couture felt the need to punch a burning SteveAustin? Lets be honest, the fire was getting the job done.

    It's quite clear that Stallone is going through a mid-life crisis typedeal and felt the need to get himself back on the screen. He andStatham were the only ones with more than 5 minutes of screen time.

    I didn't expect Schindler's List, but I also didn't expect to leave thetheater with the taste of urine in my mouth. If you haven't seen ityet, wait for the DVD.

    So I guess with any film review – it's all about the answers to theimportant questions. So let's get them out of the way first shall we?

    Q) Is the plot descent, with a substantial storyline including dramaticarcs, twists and/or turns?

    A) Not particularly.

    Q) Are there character arcs and meaningful character developments?

    A) A little.

    Q) Is there romance?

    A) Next question, please.

    Q) Is the overall film original?

    A) Not at all.

    Q) Is it a likely Oscar nomination contender?

    A) Hell no!

    Q) Is it still awesome?

    A) HELL YES!!!!!

    Critics should be banned from reviewing films such as these. Anyonewith half a brain can tell exactly what kind of film this is and whatthey're in for purely by the film's trailer alone.

    This is a film made for action movie fans and not just regular actionmovies – I mean REAL action films in the style of the classic 80'saction movies where plot and substantial character developments anddialogue took a backseat to intense over-the-top violence, explosions,car chases, sex scenes and catchy, memorable one liners!

    The 80's action hero (and villain) breed was a rare phenomenon whichwill likely die with those very actors who gave them life. No 90's ornew millennium "action" movie star will ever come close to beinganywhere near as genuinely tough and just plain bad-arse as their 80'spredecessor's! Even now with the main 'Expendables' cast pushing 60 +,you know that they would snap Matt Damon's spine in 2 with one handtied behind their backs!

    The 'Expendables' cast consists of Sly Stallone as the fearless leaderof the team, Jason (Basketball stabber) Statham as the trustyknife-throwing sidekick, Dolph Lundgren as the treacherous giant one,Jet-Li as the small one, Terry Chews as Wesley Snipes, Mickey Rourke asthe tattoo/previous knife-throwing sidekick and Randy Couter as the"who the hell is this guy, oh he's a UFC fighter" guy.

    I still can't believe the unbelievable shape these guys are in! They'regiants (exception for Jet-li of course).

    Still, despite it's 80's throw-back appeal – the film isn't all action.Believe it or not there are slow parts. Mostly unnecessary fillerbetween the action scenes. However the third act of the film makes upfor the lack of action and then some!

    It's when this third act commences when the true action film we've beenwaiting to see kicks in and steps up several notches to become themanliest most testosterone-fueled film since the last 'Rambo'!

    It's funny, it's loud, it's un-relentlessly violent, an action-packedno-brainer of a film! An 80's action movie fan's wet-dream!!!

    Bring on the sequel/s and bring on Jean-Claude Van Damme so he can giveStatham the butt-kicking he so desperately deserves!!!
