Requested Reviews: The Expendables

The Expendables was Stallone's over the top (get it) venture back in to the original action genre. After a successful reprise of the Rambo character, The Expendables was a sure fire hit that ultimately failed due to a weak script, lackluster cameos, and a nonsensical story that was lacking any character development. There are some decent action scenes towards the end but that's barely enough to save a film that truly lacks any focus.

While expecting Stallone to redefine the genre he helped create, this viewer was ultimately disappointed with this disaster of a movie.
