My Thoughts on The Expendables

Considering all the hype that went into this film, it end up with more a whimper than a bang.  It was alright enough a film, but it was a far cry from “the action film to end all action films.”

Probably the most hyped scene in the movie that united Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger on screen for the first time.  If anything, I would say that scene allowed Schwarzenegger to (somewhat literally) walk off into the sunset.

The Expendables was an alright film, but I was expecting it to be a little more.
