The Expendables - movie review

Sylvester Stallone directs and stars in this action thriller. What makes the movie is the cast of action heros. The stunts and pyrotechnics were all we've come to depend on from each and everyone of these girl idols and favourites of teen age boys and old men. Jason Stratham of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and the Transporters pairs with Sylvester Stallone as a deadly duo. Jet Li provides dazzling martial arts and wry Asian humor at it's finest. Dolph Lundgren is his shot gun toting giant self. Eric Roberts plays the slick bad guy. David Zayas is the necessary South American General. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwartzenager make cameo appearances. Giselle Itie, the Mexican heartthrob ,stops even the action of this action thriller with her sultry appearance. Micky Rourke shows up with tattoos and hookers. The beautiful Charisma Carpenter and whole lot of great younger male stars fill out this non stop war adventure. I just watched it on pay per view tv and would only wish that I'd seen it on the big screen. A movie this big needs a lot more screen than tv.
