Bottom Line: It’s exactly what you’d probably expect – a poorly written, edited, directed and acted blood-bath of an action movie. You may have a smidgeon of fun with it – but the thought will be gone by the time you leave the theater (maybe you’re hungry or perhaps, like me, you’ll get distracted by something shiny). Yes, it’s an impressive tough-guy lineup – but this star-studded, testosterone-fueled, cheese-fest just doesn’t enthuse. THE EXPENDABLES lands a lot of punches, draws a lot of blood but it won’t knock you out.
