Sunday's Random Post! Action Movie Mini Review

Hello my awesome readers!

I know I'm doing my reviews on Friday, but this movie is so simple, that it doesn't need a full length review, as with Ghost Recon.
The movie is The Expendables. Directed by Sylvester Stallone, this movie is centered completely on action! It is also pretty cool how he brings actors from a huge amount of old action movies together, like Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Terry Crews, that crazy old spice dude lol
Though I haven't seen most of the movies those actors were in, and didn't recognize most of them either, it was still cool seeing how many I could recognize.
Plot wise, there is next to none, and you will have trouble understand what is going on, because you'll have to pay a huge amount of attention to the fairly boring parts between the mind numbing action. I'd have to say it's one of the worst action movies I've seen. The plot makes no sense, and you don't even want to pay attention to the parts that slightly explain it, because of how dull they are. All I can say is this boss team is going after some power hungry Mexican, who's buying something illegal... or something like that. Most of the characters don't even have a back story. Jason's character has a love interest, but that story isn't particularly original, or important in the long run. There are a few funny moments with Jet Li, but most of the time people are just making fun of his size. To be honest, there isn't much to tell about the movie. Just picture Rambo 4 with a worse story, and less action :P and a whole whack of cameos.
I rate this movie 1.5 out of 5 stars.
Blandly driven story, Next to no story, Rather bad dialogue, Some action comparable to Rambo 4, but less of it, and some pretty shallow characters. If you like action movies, this may be a movie for you, but if you want at least some story, like in Die Hard, you should just watch Die Hard. I highly recommend Die Hard, awesome movie!

  1. I have only seen the director's cut of the movie so I am not sure how much was changed from the original. But I agree, the plot could have been better. Although the sequel actually looks kind of cool because Bruce Willis is in it more than 5 minutes.


    1. I can't remember, but I think I saw the director's cut as well. Oh yeah, way better haha. Yes for sure! Bruce Willis may be able to save the second movie :P and I heard Chuck Norris and Arnold will be in it too. More in the case of Arnold.
