Director: Simon West
Running Time: 98 minutes
Along with shellsuits, shoulder pads, and backcombing the 1980s gave us some of the finest tongue-in-cheek action films of all time. The Expendables (2010) attempts to capture the innocence and fun of Commando, Die Hard, Rambo et al failed due to a bloated cast and confused script, but $274million worldwide gave Sly and co. a second chance with Simon West (Tomb Raider, Con Air) taking the reins.
At Church’s (Willis) request Barney (Stallone) and his team, along with Maggie (Yu), attempt to procure a hard drive from a plane crash site. When one of their team is killed at the hands of Vilain (Van Damme) and the hard drive lost the expendables set out to get it back and avenge the fallen.
