I had been seeing the fun trailers for The Expendables 2, but I had never seen the first one. The Younger Son remedied that recently. The Expendables (2010) stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have small uncredited roles. We enjoyed the wink at old action movies and all the explosions. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
Slant Magazine calls it "the most boring action flick of the summer." Rotten Tomatoes critics give it a score of 41%.
