I Wouldn't Watch This Film If You Paid Me

DS

I see what you mean...it seems to be slightly under-cast...we really need to include to the list...

Jean-Claude Van Damme, Wesley Snipes, Steven Seagal, Chuck Norris and Danni DaVitto for a

bit of comedy relief. :)

I saw this movie today and I liked it. They spent so much time promoting all the stars, but I honestly did not know that Stallone was the director until the beginning credits. I knew there would be a lot of action and it was. Even when there wasn't action, it was good. I wasn't a fan of Statham when he did Transporter 3 and Crank 2 High Voltage, but he definitely redeemed himself in this. I'll admit I had to laugh at some of the action scenes, but in my opinion, it's a classic action film. It's old school which I like. It doesn't just follow one character and they're not built up to have the world revolve around them. It was okay with the Matrix and actually I think Unbreakable started it, but Constantine and the new version of The Day The Earth Stood Still where it's just one guy holds the fate of all mankind in his hands is just overplayed. I know people are going to refuse to see it because of their mindset, but this was just so rockin'. I literally had to stand outside of my car for a while with my cousin while he smoked his cig because I was just so jacked up. Dolph Lundgren was probably the funniest in the whole movie.

And I don't think Macgruber is an SNL skit stretched too think. I've never seen the sketches, but my other cousin has and he loved it too. There are just some parts that will take you by surprise and will make you laugh. The only SNL skit that was a mistake to turn into a movie in my opinion was Superstar with Molly Shannon. Deuce Bigalow was borderline with European Gigolo but I don't know many people who didn't like Night at the Roxbury.

The Expendables was pretty silly. There were a couple funny one-liners. Overall the action was OK, however, I felt with the camera constantly shaking and switching I couldn't figure out what in the world was going on. But maybe that was the point. It was exciting but I actually liked the latest Rambo movie more.

Saw it last night. It was way over the top, just the way it should be. I loved it.

It was pretty much advertised from the start that it wasn't about story or character development, just explosions and gun fire, and it turned out great for what it was aiming to be. It was also the first movie ive seen in a good while where the crowd really got into it and had a lot of fun. A lot of cheers and claps when the howitzer shell got shot.

Yeah, I hear ya on the crowd part, Sart. There was one time where I laughed at a death and thought I'd be the only one to do so, but everyone else pitched in. And I kinda understand what you mean about the cameras, firefly. But it wasn't that bad. If you pay close attention to some of the scenes in the latest Rambo, you'll notice the camera's shaky in that as well. But it won at the box office for the weekend. At first, I couldn't believe people were saying Scott Pilgrim would beat it, but then I remembered Meet the Spartans beat the latest Rambo and that movie was just another horrible movie spoof. But it's about time a classic action flick won at the box office. Usually its something that has to do with an intricate conspiracy or something out of this world like Avatar. And I would also like to say that Jason Statham redeemed himself with this movie after doing horrible ones such as Transporter 3 and Crank 2 High Voltage.

Just saw this with a couple buds last night. Pretty good if you are in the mood for some old-fashioned 80's meat-headed gratuitious violence. I enjoyed it :thumbsup:

Glad to see Stallone has toned down the 'roids since the last Rambo movie (which I only saw the trailer). However, despite all the facial close-ups you could tell the old body is showing its age. You could blame him for not knowing when to quit but I think the Expendables was the top grossing movie for the last 2 weeks ...

So what was that big boomstick Terry Crews was using? And does any military service actually use it?
