So…finally saw this movie last night for the first time. Cant believe it took me so long to actually see it. Missed it in the theater but got it for my birthday on Blu-Ray. And I have to say…decent action flick.
Of course this movie is all about Stallone. Stallone all tatted up. Stallone beating people up. Stallone running (awkwardly and badly I might add) anywhere and everywhere. So much of the movie is Stallone you feel like its Stallone on Steroids. Hummm…
All the other “Expendables” play decent roles…just not enough of them for my money. Statham got the second most screen time and did well with it. Jet Li looks kinda out of place in my opinion. Not enough Crews and Couture. Stone Cold Steve Austin was a good bad guy but didnt really have enough action. And a semi-sensitive moment with Micky Rourke (who still has the cool-as-shit aura)…yikes.
And action is really what this movie was all about…and it was great! I know the first part of this review made it sound like I didnt like the flick all that much. But the action was so over-the-top (which I like) that it made it enjoyable for me. The fighting sequences were good (not enough) and the explosions were all over the place…KABOOM!!!
All in all, decent like I said. I would have liked to have seen all the explosions…KABOOM…on the big screen, but glad I didnt pay to see this one. I enjoy it as a gift though and cant wait to re-watch now with Blu-Ray special mode.
