The Expendables

I thought the poster was cool:

The trailer:


The movie doesn’t look like anything groundbreaking, but would probably be entertaining enough to watch.

I like the appearance of the AA-12 shotgun at 1min 42sec!

  1. Like you said, the poster looks cool. The movie kind of looks average though, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the only funny parts where in that trailer :/

    1. You just have to go into it with the ultra-low expectations that I have. Make it a drinking game where you have to drink every time there is a 60 second stretch with no violence. You’ll be much less critical by the end ;-)

      You have to love the idea of having a movie with the vast majority of action stars of the last few decades in it. Not seen in the trailer were Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwawhatever, and Danny “Mechete” Trejo. That’s just fun. It’s probably a shorter list to name the action stars that are not in the movie: Chuck Norris, that french dude, and Vin Diesel are the only ones that come to mind for me right now.

      The AA-12 also appears in the trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Predators movie. Maybe it’ll become the new ‘it’ gun for a while.

      Oh, and that poster IS awesome.

        hahah that’s a great idea.

        I’ll have to check out the predator trailer, I didn’t even know there was a new one of those coming out.

      The start of that trailer is especially corny. The part with the thermal imaging…

  3. […] /hat tip Mike @ Everyday, No Days Off […]

  4. Regardless of how groundbreaking it is I’m definitely going to see it! As soon as I saw that single action revolver I stopped the trailer; no need to watch any more, it looks like fun. With this kind of movie you just buy the tickets, buy the drinks and popcorn, sit down and enjoy the ride.

      No doubt. Definitely looks like some interesting gun scenes. I’ll probably catch a matinée sometime or wait until it comes out for rental.

  5. Good old over the top action. I’ll probably see it just for the explosion and gun porn.

  6. With a namelist like that, and with that many things shooting, exploding, and being pummelled into a bruised mess, I would go see it no matter how bad it is.

    But, then, my standards for movies have always been a little low…

  7. Its badness can only be matched by its goodness. Somewhere, a tear runs down Uwe Boll’s cheek.
