So, I watched this movie and couldn’t even make sense of what the hell was the fuss all about! It seemed like Sly and his team of Expendables foiled some devious scheme. Then they had some beers and wasted their chiseled alas old bodies on tattoos. Following which they were given a job of bringing down a dictator, so they gunned up and blasted the dictator from the face of the earth.
And yeah, the star cast is stellar. Arnold has a solid 2 minute Oscar winning performance. Bruce Willis would certainly get the “Pricks Blink-An-I Dissapear” Act at the Cannes next year. Then there is the stud SLY, who is his own dreamy self rallying surprisingly lame dialogues with Jason Statham, who is his usual cool self. Jet Li makes a complete fool of himself in the atrocious role, where he is shown as a pigmy among giants.
If you are a succor for Action, then please watch a re-run of CON-AIR and if you want gore watch KICK-ASS instead! Not to say that the action sequences are totally lame . They are decent, but then when you have no connect with the film and there is no point to anything, the action too seems dull. I think they could have done well to remove a few studs and put in some Maidens ! Now , that’s what good action movies are all about. All Brawns, No Brains, Beautiful Maidens….
Supposedly mercenaries these guys show no mercy on the audience as they act out one of the most pointless action movies of the decade ! Even the dialogues lack punch … Hopefully Sly would make another Rocky, coz atleast it has heart. He should forget about being Rambo anymore, coz this film is truly Utterly, Gutterly, Ridiculous…
Rating : 3/ 10 – For atleast thinking of having Willis, Arnold and Sly in one shot ! Now that’s a keeper !
