I reckon you should leave because you're adding nothing to the thread.
You've added your opine, been called a blouse, so leave.

On topic, Stallone is still a fucking weapon... at 62!

Oh fuck me, all this backwards and forwards.
I'll summarise.

You say the movie is crammed with shit actors, I say it's what people want.
You say it will be a shallow movie, I say youre a dickhead for expecting a deep one, it's action.
You say you don't have expectations, but yet I pointed out you said it will be shallow and vacuous appealing to 'numb-as-fuck masses'.
You say you're excited about it, yet haven't posted anything about it except your intial bottom feeding statement.
I say you go to a book club, you use a book club comeback.
I call you a blouse, you write back that I'm a blouse because I'm posting about actors in the movie.

You say it's a public forum, yeah it is except nobody here wants or needs your opine.
So, FUCK OFF, please.

Wow... that was awesome!! Defensive much? I've never seen anyone analyse an internet forum exchange like that, would you like a warm cup of milk to help you sleep tonight??

Maybe you should talk to the mods and ask them to change the thread title for you, say: "I'm not gay but I love drooling over ageing male actors, who wants to see this movie naked?"

Disappointed that Van Damme couldn't harden up and take the role - same with Snipes.
Hopefully they pull them in on the sequel.

Grow up bro, you don't like to agree with, or like, his line of thought, but that doesn't mean he's not allowed to post it...how you reacte to it is entirely your choice

i'd much rather Dolph Lundgren anyway. Van Damme is a pussy who cares more about his boobies than good movies

THIS LOOKS FUCKING SWEET AS!! Seeing as Stone Cold is in The Rock should be too complete with the people's eyebrow.

Also Bolo Yeung (sp?) needs to be in this, surely he's still around just getting more and more awesome.

Things that need to happen in this movie:

* Several point bank shotgun shots to the head
* Knife fights
* Stone Cold Stunner
* Jet Li destroying about ten guys in ten seconds
* Dolph Lundgren destroying two blonde sets of cheerleader twins
* Mickey Rourke grinning and laughing insanely
* Sylvester Stallone's face melting

waaaaay pumped for this, senseless action movies ftw!

i hope it has every action movie cliche in the book, just to add to the awesomeness (ie. the slow motion scene of the good guy walking down the road with 50 bad dudes shooting at him, but he manages to kill each of them without ever having to reload his gun).
lots of unnecessary explosions as well.

taking my little brother to this one, and i might also drag my little sister's skinny leg jeans wearing, long hair straightening, cardigan wearing boyfriend along as well, to show him how real dudes are supposed to act. actually, fuck it, i dont want him to ruin the movie by getting gay all over it.

New trailer is out, should have led with this as it's a bit more a teaser.
And I think it's a bit stupid they have given away the only scene with Arnie, Willis and Stallone in it in a trailer - would have been more awesome to reveal that in the movie.

The 411: If you are a man and you do not see the movie, then you are not a man. The Expendables is quite possibly the last great manly men of action movie of all time. This is a straight up awesome badass male ensemble action movie. The Expendables is a return back to the manly men of action movies of old.

i agree with this.

SICK movie! Exactly what it says on the label, done really well.

my only complaint was they had the sound up way to fucking loud in the theater. So loud the speakers were distorting big time. They need a new sound engineer at macquarie.

Spoiler:
also when statham walks into the island with the Canon 5D mk II he had a 50mm f/1.4 lens on it, then when they're inside & he starts filming all of a sudden there's a 24-105L on there.

This is a fantastic action film. Micky Rourke's and Sly's scene - my favorite of the film. Dolph Lundgren was probably my favorite part but I really enjoyed the whole ensemble. Crazy movie, 9/10

i went in open minded, not really having any expectations.

left rather disappointed. not really sure why though.
i thought the action side of things was pretty good,
but shot horribly and the special effects were a little cheesy.


waiting for heaps of meme's to come out of this movie.

4/10?

Started a bit slow and then BOOOOOM! crazy over the top action at its finest, they just dont make movies like this anymore

9/10

Fav parts were
Spoiler:
Arnie and Sly's little back and forth in the church ('have you been sick? you look like you've lost weight' lol) Statham's 'front of plane' gunning run, Sly's awesome supercharged ute, Dolph's crazyness, Steve Austins massive hit on Stallone, Keys' psycho automatic shotgun and Couture and Lee double kicking that guys neck off haha

It's an 11.

Probably one of the most quotable films of all time.

In the interest of all things 80's action movies
