The Expendables

Synopsis: Fearless Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is leader of a tight-knit band of men - Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), ex-SAS and skilled with any bladed weapon; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a close combat master; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a veteran in precision sniping. When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, the team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena. There, Barney and Christmas meet Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom fighter with a dark secret. They also learn the true enemy - rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra for dead. Haunted by this failure, they return to Vilena to finish the job he started. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]

From the dictionary, the word "expendable" can also be defined as dispensable, and for this meaning, the movie truly lives up to its name. Totally plotless, except for the 6 gentleman above going around shooting mindlessly and throwing blades everywhere killing those trying to stop them, I really cannot describe this movie further. Sometimes, I really wonder how the company of 6 can defeat a small army of 100+ soldiers without suffering any casualty? =p Well, if you want to catch up with some of the actors for old timers sake, please feel free to watch this movie, but be warn, don't get your hopes too high~
